Meanwhile, Foo Fighters members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will induct Canadian prog-rockers Rush into the Rock Hall.

The rest of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees include Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Albert King and Randy Newman. Producers Quincy Jones and Lou Adler will pick up a special lifetime achievement award during the festivities.
