Who's ready to rock?
Some of music industry's biggest names -- including Paul Simon, Bette Midler, John Legend and Elton John -- are slated to present at the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on March 14 in NYC. The event will be televised on Fuse on Sunday, March 20 at 9 p.m. EST.
Rob Zombie, The Doors' John Densmore and Lloyd Price will also be on hand to induct this year's honorees.
The eight artists being inducted are Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love, Tom Waits, Jac Holzman, Art Rupe and Leon Russell.
The 2011 inductees were chosen by a group of 500 voters from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. Artists are first eligible for inclusion in the hall of fame 25 years after their first recording is released.
In addition to being honored on March 14, each artist will be commemorated at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
