It’s a free two hour special saluting Rock Hall inductees past and present. Hosted by David Letterman’s longtime musical director, Paul Shaffer, this year’s special features an exclusive interview with Jann Wenner, the Vice Chairman and co-founder of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Editor and Publisher of Rolling Stone magazine.
Shaffer, who has served as musical producer for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony since its inception in 1986, will share his stories of past inductions, lend insight on this year’s class of inductees, and discuss with Jann who deserves to be inducted but keeps getting overlooked. This year’s special includes music from Rock Hall inductees Michael Jackson, Blondie, Prince, Rod Stewart, Madonna, and U2.
Paul Shaffer’s Rock Hall Spectacular is available for broadcast beginning 4/4 – just in time for the 2012 Induction Ceremony on April 14th.
