When Prince, ZZ Top and Jackson Browne are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, they won’t have to look far to see contemporary stars their music has influenced.
Outkast, Kid Rock, Alicia Keys and Dave Matthews are among those who’ll pay tribute to their mentors by inducting this year’s class, organizers announced Thursday (February 19).
At the ceremony, inductees are presented by special guests who typically will say a few words and also perform a song from that artist. For the 2004 ceremony, Prince will be presented by both Outkast and Keys. Late Beatles guitarist George Harrison will be inducted by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.
Kid Rock will present Bob Seger, while Dave Matthews will announce Traffic’s arrival in the hall. Finally, Bruce Springsteen and Rolling Stones icon Keith Richards will induct Jackson Browne and ZZ Top, respectively.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place in New York on March 15 and will be broadcast March 21 on VH1 at 8 p.m. ET.
