2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
Saturday, 9 p.m., HBO
This year’s inductees included Quincy Jones, Heart, Public Enemy, Randy Newman, and (posthumously) Boston homegirl Donna Summer. Having attended the taping at the Nokia Theatre in LA last month — sorry about that incessant hooting during Summer’s induction — I’ll be curious to see how HBO chops down the five-hour evening into a nearly three-hour block. My guess is they will be dramatically cutting the epic speeches given by Flavor Flav of Public Enemy and Jones, during which some disgruntled fans of a certain Canadian inductee began loudly chanting “Rush! Rush! Rush!” Speaking of, make sure you stick around for Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson’s terrifically absurd yet touching speech (pictured).
