Another planned reunion did not happen, with the former Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor sends an open letter from abroad that reveals his stage 4 prostate cancer relapse as the reason he could not join his former bandmates for their introduction.

Dolly Parton proved she could rock, with Rob Halford and other join to help her seal the deal during an all-star rendition of “Jolene” — though she hardly needed any backup to make her point.

Bruce Springsteen revealed the story of how Jimmy Iovine convinced him to give away a song it became Patti Smith’s biggest hit of all time, “Because the Night”. John Mellencamp celebrated the important work that entertainment attorney Allen Grubman has done for countless musicians in the industry — including himself — while using his platform to explicitly denounce anti-Semitism. And although she was unable to attend, Carly Simon sent a warm message to share his humble appreciation for the Rock Hall honor.
