Jimmy Page to Induct Jeff Beck

Jimmy Page will induct his former Yardbirds bandmate Jeff Beck into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the April 4th induction ceremony in Cleveland.

It is also being reported that Aerosmith will have the honor of inducting Run-DMC at the ceremony.

Darryl "DMC" McDaniels made the rounds with the local media yesterday, talking about Run-DMC's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he managed to make a little news during one interview. Appearing on radio station WAAF-FM, DMC was asked who should induct the rap act. "It's a no-brainer if Aerosmith does it," said McDaniels. "I hope they're listening. It's their hometown." Wisely, the station immediately rang up Joey Kramer, and asked the Aerosmith drummer if he might do the intro. Of course, Kramer said. Run-DMC's 1986 LP "Raising Hell" was one of the biggest-selling rap albums of all time, thanks to the cover of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."
There is still no word on who the presenters will be for Little Anthony & the Imperials, Bobby Womack and Metallica.

Tickets to the ceremony sold out within minutes of going on sale to the public, but can be still be had for around $500 for a pair of seats on Ebay.

Thanks, Daryl.
