David Letterman replaces Neil Young at Rock Hall show

ELO's "Roll Over Beethoven" then began, with members of the British band, including Jeff Lynn, performing in front of a giant screen cycling photos of Berry. The late rapper is in the 2017 class to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"Instead of collecting baseball cards we used to run around and wait for Tuesdays for all the European and Japanese import music magazines and try to get Randy Rhoads pictures (a famed guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, Rhoads was killed in a plane accident in 1982)". After singing the "nah-nah-nah-nah-nah" part of "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'", he said, "They didn't even need lyrics". I don't believe in guilty pleasures.

The most visibly moved artist Friday was Nile Rodgers. "If you're in show business, it's likely there's a good strong streak of cynicism in you, and I would be the president of that club except for things like this", Letterman said. "We've had him to all the best clinics!"

I want to tell you a story that I'm very fond of.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is hosting a live simulcast. "But what I heard was Mitch Mitchell, Ginger Baker and John Bonham", he said.

"If people weren't questioning who's in and who's out and why my favorites are, it would mean they didn't care", says Harris. Not so surprisingly, Perry spoke last. I have high regard for him. "There was one instrument that was flying above the entire city ... that was the magic fingers of Neal Schon's guitar". "But, you know, they didn't know that the person that they gave the job to, that their singer was really an Evil Knievel". "I use that analogy because it can be done, but we don't have 108 years". "It will be forever in my heart". In one of the classiest moves of the evening, he tossed praise at Arnel Pineda, the Filipino singer discovered on YouTube who has kept the vocals created by Perry alive since 2007. White thanked fans and also paid a nod to the band's longtime bassist, Chris Squire, who died in 2015, calling Squire "one of my best friends ever". "We would not be here had it not been for you and your tireless love and consistent devotion".

"We can not be the generation that history will look back upon and wonder, why didn't they do everything humanly possible to solve this biggest crisis of our time?" the long outspoken singer told the audience at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. His disco band Chic has been nominated a record 11 times without sealing a spot in the Hall of Fame - but he was given a separate award for production.

Journey led the Hall of Fame fan voting since the start.
