Miley Cyrus to Induct Joan Jett & the Blackhearts Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
It's official: Miley Cyrus will welcome Joan Jett & the Blackhearts into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during its annual induction ceremony set to take place next week.
News of who would do the honors of inducting the iconic group was withheld until today, when Miley's name was officially added to the roster. According to the LA Times, Zac Brown was also named as a performer, as he is set to play with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, to honor the Paul Butterfield Blues Band at the ceremony.
As for the rest of the ceremony, Paul McCartney is set to induct his fellow Beatle, Ringo Starr, into the Hall of Fame, while Patti Smith will posthumously induct the late Lou Reed. Stevie Wonder will induct Bill Withers, Fall Out Boy is set to welcome Green Day, John Mayer will induct Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Peter Wolf will welcome Paul Butterfield Blue Band and, finally, Steve Cropper will induct the "5" Royales.
Performers for the ceremony include Joe Walsh, Jimmie Vaughan and -- one of our absolute favorite musicians and humans of all time -- Dave Grohl, formerly of Nirvana and currently of the Foo Fighters as well as a million other side projects because he is superhuman.
The induction ceremony is set for an April 18 date and will take place in Cleveland at the Public Hall. Thankfully, the entire event will be recorded, so you can check out the accompanying HBO special when it airs on May 30.
