Tonight, Friday, April 7th, Seattle’s own Pearl Jam are being inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Barclays Center in New York. (Other inductees include Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, Journey, Tupac Shakur, and Yes.) HBO will air the event later this month on April 29th, but you can follow KEXP on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook as our own DJ Troy Nelson will be live on the scene!
Back in 2013, Seattle duo Heart were inducted to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame themselves. Founding member and guitarist Nancy Wilson was kind enough to share some of her thoughts on seeing the band receiving the same honor four years later. Listen below.
KEXP celebrates Pearl Jam‘s induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame on the air, Friday, April 7th, from 6 AM to 6 PM. Tune in for interview clips, rare tracks, covers, and all your favorites from these local legends.
