This doesn't exactly come as a crazy surprise - Neil Young will do the honors of inducting Pearl Jam into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the April 7th ceremony. Neil + Pearl Jam have worked together on multiple occasions, so it's a perfect fit.Members of Rush, including Geddy Lee, will induct Yes, and Jackson Browne will induct Joan Baez. No word yet on who will do the honors for ELO, Journey or Tupac. Nile Rodgers will recieve the Award for Musical Excellence.
Eddie Vedder has been on the other side of the process a bunch, he was the one who actually inducted Neil Young into the HOF in '95 and also The Doors in 1993, The Ramones in 2002 (and whoa! he's barely recognizable with that mohawk) and R.E.M in 2007.
