Here’s who will be honoured at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 10:
- Peter Gabriel (Deservedly so)
- Hall and Oates (Um…)
- KISS (Yeah, they should be here.)
- Nirvana (Feel old, Gen Xers?)
- Linda Ronstadt (I guess…)
- Cat Stevens (Not very rock’n’roll, innit?)
The two recipients of the Ahment Ertegun Awards will be:
- Brian Epstein (former manager of the Beatles, dead since 1967)
- Andrew Loog Oldham (original manager of the Rolling Stones and a wonderful eccentric; I’ve met him.)
And then there’s something called The Award for Musical Excellence that will go to the E Street Band.
