Springsteen In, Ronstadt Out Of Hall Of Fame Event

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced a list of people who will induct this year’s honoree and will perform.

It appears that Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) has decided to attend the ceremony, contrary to earlier reports; however, Linda Ronstadt has decided not to attend. The main reason she won’t be present for her induction is health related, but she also tells Billboard that it isn’t a big deal for her.

“I haven’t given it one thought, I have to say,” Ronstadt says. “It wasn’t anything I ever thought about. I never thought of myself as a rock’ n’ roll singer; I sang it, (but) it’s just one of the things I sang. I sang a lot of different stuff. I didn’t go the last two times I was nominated for a Grammy, either. I don’t have anything against it; you just don’t do things for those reasons. If you’re working for prizes, you’re in trouble. There’s nothing wrong with it. I don’t mind it. It’s just not anything I ever gave a thought to.”

She added that nobody from the Rock Hall has been in contact with her.

Glenn Frey will be on hand on April 10 to induct Ronstadt while a number of artists will perform a salute to her career including Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow.

It was also announced that Bruce Springsteen will be inducting the E-Street Band and will perform with them.
