Rock N Roll Hall of Fame 12:A Night to Remember

Rock and roll hall of fame has always been one of the most talked about, honorary and controversial rock n roll element. It takes an artist 25 years from their first album to be inducted into rock and roll hall of fame. The best thing about Rock and roll is it doesn't only induct the artist but also the people who have helped them gain the fame by working behind them including producers, engineers, songwriters, media persons and record executives. Likewise it also honor those musicians who have served music industry with their music staying out of the spotlight like backup musicians, session musician and concerts backup musicians. The first rock and roll induction ceremony was held back in 1986 with the early pioneer of rock n roll being inducted like Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, The Everly brothers and "the king" Elvis Presley.

The year 2012, seems to be much more interesting in rock and roll hall of fame with the bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys and Guns N Roses headlining the ceremony. Many people are eager to see the induction ceremony of Guns N Roses. They have been inducted in their first year of eligibility. Many still question themselves, Will guns and roses reunite for one night in Cleveland? The open feud between Axl Rose and Slash is no secret to any music lovers. The band who started their career in 1987 with their biggest selling debut album "appetite for destruction" did not even last long up to mid 90s.Now Axl Rose is the only original member remain in the band. As a music lover myself, I can surely say Guns N Roses were the dynamic group of Slash , Axl Rose , Duff Mckagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Izzy Stradlin. The new lineup didn't even came close to the original members.GNR redefined hard rock and the so called rockstar persona. When the band started no one even would have thought that band will last for such a short time but in that short time band gave us some of the greatest music of lifetime .So, it will be so interesting to see will they reunite again or not? Similarly, another rockers from LA, Red Hot Chili Peppers are joining the legendary rock and roll hall of fame group in April 14, 2012.They have to wait 2 more years to be inducted. They were first nominated on 2010. All of the original member of the band are set to be inducted i.e. Flea, Anthony kiedis, Hillel Slovak and Jack Iron. 29 years ago,4 regular friends performed a 3 min long song in front of 30 people  and from then the magic of the RHCP began to blossom. Even after facing lots of up and down in their career like death of Hillel, departure of Jack Iron, departure of John Frusciante, the chili peppers never back down and faced their problems to be stronger. Drugs, sex and rock n roll is what defines the chili peppers. Having sold more than 70 million albums worldwide, charting the record 12 no.1 song on alternative rock chart, they are still one of the most prominent figures in rock history. The feud between Anthony kiedis and John Frusciante is no more secret to hide due to which it is still unknown whether Frusciante will join the band in the ceremony or not. The new guitarist josh Klinghoffer have also been inducted in the early record breaking age of 32 hoping that he will continue his journey with the peppers in the future. The members who are being inducted are Anthony kiedis, Flea, Jack iron, Hillel Slovak, Cliff Martinez, John Frusciante, Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer. Beastie boys are the next group to be inducted. The hip hop trio consisting of Adam Horovitz, Mike Diamond and Adam Yanch are often cited as the pioneer of hip-hop. The trio has been one of the most influential group in the history of music. They have experimented with different sound and became critically and commercially successful. Their 1986 album "license to III" was the first hip hop album to be charted no.1 in billboard and the best selling hip hop album of the 80s.

Thus, this year's rock and roll hall of fame is going to be pretty much interesting. The main co-headliners of the ceremony Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns And Roses are on the eye of every person now. This ceremony can give answer to many upraised questions about current inner feelings of guns and roses members. It can be an emotional night to watch. Likewise other inductees are late singer/songwriter Laura Nyro, Donovan and influential British rock group The Small Faces/The Faces who also consist Rod Stewart and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.
