The legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony has been an ongoing event since 1986 in which numerous people across the world look forward too annually. Each year, famed musicians who have managed to touch the hearts of countless people with their meaningful lyrics and insane, undeniable talent, are admitted into the world- famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — the beacon of all things rock and roll. From musicians such as Blondie, Bob Marley and Elton John to groups like Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac and Journey, there is one thing that each of these artists have in common and that is their ability to both influence and rock the lives of innumerable music lovers.
This year, the 34th Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction was certainly no exception when it came to its brilliant inductees. From Janet Jackson, Radiohead, The Cure and more, there was a handful of artists and musicians chosen to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
Now, while the artists and musicians who are being inducted are without a doubt the main attraction, those doing the inducting can often times certainly be considered showstoppers. Amongst the presenters this year was singer-songwriter, Harry Styles, rising rockstar legend himself who could very well see himself being inducted into the ceremony at some point in the future. The 25-year-old singer was called to action to induct rockstar icon and Fleetwood Mac vocalist, Stevie Nicks.
In May 2017, the two musicians came together to perform a Fleetwood Mac classic, “Landslide.” Styles, who has vocalized his love and appreciation for Nicks on several occasions was ecstatic to bring her on stage at a venue in Los Angeles. “I never thought I’d be able to say this. Please welcome to the stage, Stevie Nicks,” announced a starstruck Styles, proving that he is just as much a fan of Stevie as we are.
When the list of presenters was released this year, many fans were ecstatic to learn that Styles would be inducting Nicks, given how much he adores the rockstar — so much so that he performed a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” each night while embarking on his world tour.
While a majority of Styles’ fans stem from those who once — and still do — followed One Direction, numerous of those same fans (and very many new ones) have extremely diverse tastes in music and are extremely open when it comes to the divergent genres of music in which they listen to. Upon the release of his own self-entitled album, Styles shocked fans with rock-inspired tracks that listeners immediately became hooked on despite the new direction in which the singer-songwriter was taking. From Kacey Musgraves to Queen to Fleetwood Mac, welcoming fans of Styles and all types of music were nearly almost as excited about Nicks’s induction as Styles was to be inducting her.
Stevie Nicks, who has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame once before in 1998 while in Fleetwood Mac has become the first female artist to be inducted into the ceremony twice, proving this specific decorum to be both an extremely big deal and an extremely significant event in history.
Now, with the added bonus of Harry Styles himself — who also got to perform Nicks’s classic song “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around — amongst countless other exceedingly talented artists and musicians, this year’s show has gotten just that much better.
While the event took place March 29, there will be a pre-recorded version of the show airing April 27, 2019, at 8 p.m. EST on HBO. If you want to see artists such as Janet Jackson and Radiohead alongside Mr Styles presenting the legend Stevie Nicks herself, be sure to tune in.
