Madonna, Elvis And Williams Inducted To Uk Hall Of Fame

Superstar MADONNA, pop hunk ROBBIE WILLIAMS and late rocker ELVIS PRESLEY were among the superstars inducted into the UK MUSIC HALL OF FAME last night (11NOV04).

The MATERIAL GIRL and 'The King' joined U2, THE BEATLES and BOB MARLEY as the founders of the first ever induction at a star-studded ceremony at east London's Hackney Empire.

Decade representatives include SIR CLIFF RICHARD for the 1950s, the ROLLING STONES for the 1960s, QUEEN for the 1970s, MICHAEL JACKSON for the 1980s and Williams as the top 1990s artist.

Madonna, U2 frontman BONO and Williams were all on hand to collect their awards, while Marley's widow RITA MARLEY and Presley's widow PRISCILLA PRESLEY accepted the honour on behalf of their late husbands.

The NAKED GUN actress enthused, "Elvis would be very proud. I wish that he could be here to enjoy this moment.

"His dream of a world tour was never realised. His fan base was so strong here, and because of that he would have been very proud to receive this."

Guitarist RONNIE WOOD picked up the sixties honour for the Stones, joking, "I wasn't even there in the 1960s as you all know. But I'm here now."

Accepting his gong from movie star DENNIS HOPPER, Bono said, "I really didn't want to come. Only respect for the people who were running the show has me here. I hate the idea of being in the UK Hall of Fame to be honest with you. We don't want to be in any Hall of Fame until we're retired or dead."
