Since 1986, a legion of rock and roll stars has congregated annually for a rollicking evening that has become one of the most celebrated events in music, paying homage to the brilliant artists, producers, songwriters, disc jockeys, and others who have made rock music an international phenomenon. This album, packed with photos throughout, takes us year by year from that first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony—when legends Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley were honored by fellow musicians like Keith Richards, Billy Joel, and Roberta Flack—to the 2009 ceremonies, when Jimmy Page, Jeff Back, Joe Perry, and Kirk Hammett traded leads in a monumental performance of the Yardbirds' "Train Kept a-Rollin'."
