Neil Young was scheduled to be a part of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as he was pegged as the inductor of Pearl Jam. Due to illness (as reported by the Rock and Roll Hall), the music legend will not be a part of the ceremony, but his replacement might be even more famous, albeit not in the music industry.
Former late night kingpin, David Letterman will now be inducting Pearl Jam. While this may seem illogical, there is no disputing that Letterman is a huge name in the entertainment field, and during his run at NBC hosting Late Night, he had many alternative bands that would not be typical on other shows.
While we will miss seeing Young at the ceremony, Letterman is a great substitute.
Let’s just hope that Young is OK!
