Beck's Delight At Hall Of Fame Honour

Guitar legend JEFF BECK is thrilled to be joining the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The British musician will be inducted into the revered Cleveland, Ohio museum on 4 April (09) along with Little Anthony + The Imperials, Metallica, Run-DMC, Bobby Womack and Wanda Jackson.
And the former The Yardbirds star is delighted to receive the distinguished honour.
He says, "It's a great thrill to be recognised by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, especially for the 25th anniversary. Nobody makes music for the honours but to take a place alongside so many of your own heroes is an indescribable feeling."

hELLO, JUST WONDERING WHY NEIL DIAMOND A LEGEND IN OUR TIME HAS NOT BEEN INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME. AND WHY THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE HALL OF FAME WHO ARE NOT AS GOOD A SINGER AS NEIL DIAMOND. JUST LOOK AT HIS CONCERTS, ALWAYS FANTASTIC. I HAVE NOT MISSED ONE IN CLEVELAND. ANYWAY, THE MAN SHOULD BE AND INDUCTEE. AND I AM SURE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THE SAME THING. PEGGY B.
