More than that, I have noticed that the inductors ("presenters") for the 2009/2010 inductees will be a rather surprising group:
- ABBA: Barry and Robyn Gibb
- Genesis: Trey Anastasio (of Phish)
- The Hollies: Steven van Zandt
- Jimmy Cliff: Wyclef Jean
- The Stooges: Billie Joe Armstrong (of Green Day)
In the case of ABBA, I would more have imagined someone like Madonna doing it, whilst Billie Joe Armstrong really is an odd presenter for the Stooges. Given their influence on such genres as goth, hardcore and ultimately the slow-burn of grunge, one would more imagine someone like Chris Cornell (of Soundgarden) or one of the the surviving members of the Sex Pistols, or even David Bowie (who produced some of Iggy's solo albums).
