Pearl Jam, Tupac, Yes, Journey to be inducted into Rock Hall

"I've been gone a long time but you've never not been in my heart".

Snoop Dogg has inducted the late Tupac Shakur into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a speech that was both touching and playful.

"McCready, according to Rolling Stone, will release a photo book this May, called "'Of Potato Heads and Polaroids: "My Life Inside and Out of Pearl Jam.'" So, what's with the title?

Snoop also shared anecdotes such as parasailing with the rapper and Death Row records exec Suge Knight and rapper/producer Dr. Dre, and also recalled the first time he met Shakur in 1993.

"No, for real! That's right Tupac is the one that got Snoop Dogg smoking blunts".

The Journey reunion was short-lived, however, as fans and attendees were disappointed Perry didn't participate in the band's set at the ceremony, which included performances of Separate Ways, Lights and Don't Stop Believin'.

Former Journey frontman Steve Perry will join his bandmates on stage tonight when the group is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but there are conflicting reports as to whether he will sing with them. "I know that's hard to see or even hard to say, but I really always felt that I was the outside guy", Perry said during the VH1 special.

Perry hasn't performed with the band since 1991.

The induction ceremony at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn began with a tribute to rock "n" roll icon Chuck Berry, who passed away last month at the age of 90.

Harris pointed out that Journey's popularity with music fans was made clear past year when the band "ran away with" the Rock Hall's online public vote.

Guitarist and producer Nile Rodgers was also on hand to receive a special award for musical excellence.

Folk great Joan Baez joked about how much of the audience might not know her, talked social activism and harmonized with the Indigo Girls and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Concerns about the legendary singer/songwriter's health arose Wednesday when it was announced he was pulling out of Friday's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony due to an undisclosed illness.
