There's talk about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lately since the induction ceremony is coming in April (and Heart will finally be there!), but did you know today in 1992, a few true legends got their place in the Hall of Fame? --The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Johnny Cash, Bill Graham and Leo Fender. Not to say the rest of the inductees weren't worthy -- The Yardbirds, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Booker T. and the M.G.’s, Sam and Dave, The Isley Brothers, Doc Pomus, Elmore James, Professor Longhair -- this has to be one of the most influential Rock HOF classes.
Here's a video from that night of an amazing tribute to Jimi Hendrix. There's no shortage of talent (or tuxedos) on stage! Watch for Neil Young, Carlos Santana, The Man in Black Johnny Cash and Jimmy Page (who was The Man in White that night)... just to name a few.
