hollies1 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Chat

[lastfm]Graham Nash[/lastfm] is joking about having “bookends” in reference to his two Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions. He entered the Hall of Fame this year with the [lastfm]Hollies[/lastfm] and in 1997 as part of [lastfm]Crosby, Stills & Nash[/lastfm].

Backstage at Monday night’s induction ceremony in New York, Nash said he felt humbled to be recognized for a second time.

After referring to his double honors as “bookends,” Graham quipped, quote, “no disrespect to Paul Simon.” Simon is also a double inductee. He entered the Hall of Fame in 1990 as part of Simon & Garfunkel and in 2001 as a solo artist.

The E-Street Band’s [lastfm]Steve Van Zandt[/lastfm] presented the Hollies on Monday in a ceremony at Manhattan’s Walorf-Astoria Hotel.

Rock’n’Roll acts joining the Hollies on Monday night were [lastfm]ABBA[/lastfm], [lastfm]Genesis[/lastfm], [lastfm]Jimmy Cliff[/lastfm] and The Stooges (in which Iggy Pop was a member).

The only member of ABBA on hand for the event was Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad, who gave regrets for the other three, Agnetha, Bjorn and Benny, for not being able to attend.
