rock and roll hall of fame
The Led Zeppelin guitarist inducted Link Wray with a performance of "Rumble."
The Rolling Stone magazine founder has been removed from the hall’s board of directors after making comments that were seen as denigrating Black and female musicians.
It's his first new single in five years.
The 14 artists and groups being considered for induction also includes Sheryl Crowe, George Michael and the White Stripes.
"Jeff Beck was on another planet," wrote Rod Stewart, while Kinks guitarist Dave Davies said he was "devastated" by the news.
The seven-time Grammy winner says she scrapped plans to perform with Olivia Rodrigo at the 2022 ceremony, which took place last weekend.
The 61-year-old guitarist's bandmates read a letter in which Taylor shared that he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer — for which "there is no cure."
"I’m so honored, and I’m so grateful that I’m even able to be up here doing hip-hop music because I love it so much," the 50-year-old rapper said on stage.
Duran Duran, Pat Benatar, Eurythmics and Carly Simon are also among this year's inductees.
The country music icon previously said she wanted to withdraw her 2022 nomination because she hadn't "earned that right."
