The 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Announcement Press Conference

The 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be broadcast this year by the Fuse network. To help promote the new partnership with the Hall of Fame, Fuse hosted a press conference in New York to announce the 2009 inductees, with Metallica as the guests of honor.

Metallica were asked which artists they would like to see inducted -- James Hetfield wants Motörhead; Lars Ulrich wants Deep Purple; Kirk Hammett would like to see Rush; and Robert Trujillo made the case for UFO.

The question about who is getting inducted has also been answered. The current lineup will be inducted along with former bassists the late Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted. Dave Mustaine will not be included with Metallica.
