Rockers Enter Hall Of Fame

Rockers enter Hall of Fame

The Irish group, U-2, has been ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The honors came at the annual induction ceremony in New York City.

U2's Bono worked the crowd at Manhattan's swank Waldorf Astoria, kissing BB King and posing for a photograph with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Also among the newly-inducted acts were the O'Jays. After film clips showed them in wild tuxes during the 1970s, the surviving four members of the gospel-styled group wore simple black suits to perform a medley of their songs -- including "Back Stabbers" and "Love Train." Singer Justin Timberlake called them "giants."

Also being enshrined in Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include soul-singer Percy Sledge, The Pretenders and Buddy Guy.
