This was the Rock Hall's 36th annual induction ceremony, which welcomed Foo Fighters, The Go-Go's, Jay-Z, Carole King, Todd Rundgren, Tuna Turner and LL Cool J into its coveted ranks. Legendary Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads was also celebrated and was honored with the Musical Excellence Award for his profound impact on heavy music.

For as much as there was to celebrate, sadly, there was also a lot to mourn as countless musicians' names and faces flashed across the screen while the nearly five-minute "In Memoriam" reel played in front of the audience members, who were in attendance for the ceremony's taping that actually took place on Oct. 30.

In addition to the late musicians mentioned at the top of the page, New York Dolls' Sylvain Sylvain, Mountain's Leslie West, Cinderella's Jeff LaBar, The Animals' Hilton Valentine, Moody Blues' Graeme Edge, Uriah Heep's Ken Hensley and John Lawton, Megaforce Records co-founder Marsha Zazula and many, many more were all honored during the segment.
