Springsteen, U2 bond some more

QUICK TAKES

February 25, 2005|Geoff Boucher

Bruce Springsteen will induct U2 when the Irish band gets ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 14 in New York City. The band's choice furthers the mutual admiration society shared with Springsteen -- the New Jersey rocker tapped U2 frontman Bono to induct him in 1999.

B.B. King and Eric Clapton will speak on behalf of Buddy Guy, Neil Young for the Pretenders, Rod Stewart for Percy Sledge and Justin Timberlake for the O'Jays.

This year's ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel marks the 20th anniversary of the tradition. VH1 will air an edited version of the event March 19.
