NEW YORK, NY (KRIS) - Flamboyant rockers KISS, singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, grunge band Nirvana and chart-topping duo Hall and Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday, but as they had vowed the four original KISS members did not perform.
Also inducted were country rock star Linda Ronstadt, who revealed last year that she is battling Parkinson's disease and did not attend, and Cat Stevens, the British musician who has gone by the name Yusuf Islam after converting to Islam, eschewing the stage for decades.
The E Street Band, the group behind Bruce Springsteen, was inducted by the rocker through the Award for Musical Excellence.
Brian Epstein, the music entrepreneur who managed The Beatles before he died in 1967 and onetime Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham rounded out the 2014 Hall of Fame roster, each receiving the Ahmet Ertegun Awards for lifetime achievement.
