Pearl Jam is arguably the biggest name being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday in Brooklyn. And being at the induction ceremony is nothing new for the band.
In 1993 when The Doors were inducted, Eddie Vedder filled in for the late Jim Morrison on vocals. In 1995, Vedder inducted Neil Young, and Pearl Jam joined Young and Crazy Horse on stage to play "[Effing] Up." And in 2007, Vedder inducted R.E.M. and sang with them on "Man on the Moon." Now 22 years later, Young will return the favor by inducting Vedder, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, Jeff Ament, Matt Cameron and the band's drummer on Ten, Dave Krusen.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Rock Hall induction without a little controversy, as fans have wondered why the band's other drummers -- Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese and Jack Irons -- weren't included. Pearl Jam invited all three drummers to attend the ceremony, but Chamberlain had to turn down the invite due to a previous commitment. There's no word yet if Abbruzzese and Irons are going to show up.
