GABRIEL GRATEFUL FOR HONOR, WON’T RULE OUT GENESIS REUNION

Backstage after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a second time, Peter Gabriel spoke with Rolling Stone about his induction as a solo artist, and about Genesis, with whom he was first enshrined. Now 64, Gabriel said, “Getting awards is nature’s way of saying you’re getting old, so you can get a little more reflective. There are few good things about getting old except you care less about what people think.” Of course what Genesis fans are always thinking and wondering is whether Gabriel will ever reunite with his former band. When asked, he said, “I never say never. I think there’s a small chance, but I don’t think it’s very high.”

WOMEN LEAD ROCKIN’ ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION PARTY

Thursday night’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony welcomed performers Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt and the E Street Band into the pantheon of rock, and featured a plethora of female voices during the event’s traditional live performances. Joan Jett, Lorde, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and St. Vincent each took turns filling in for the late Kurt Cobain alongside surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novocelic, while Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood and Emmylou Harris paid tribute to Ronstadt, who did not attend due to health reasons. Meanwhile, the fireworks expected to be set off amongst the four feuding original members of Kiss turned out to be duds as everyone was on their best behavior. All four – Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss - took turns making separate acceptance speeches, but Stanley seemed to sum up the sentiment, saying, “To Peter, Ace, Gene – we are the original four, so we could not have done this if we didn’t start this together. Everything we’ve done is built on the past. We’ve got a great, great legacy.” Stanley also tipped his cap to the fans, and again flipped his middle finger to the Rock Hall powers that be, saying, “Here we are tonight, inducted basically for the things we were left out for. The people buy albums. The people who nominate do not.”

FORMER ROLLING STONES MANAGER WON’T BE AT ROCK HALL INDUCTION

Original Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham is the latest member of the class of 2014 to announce he won’t attend tonight’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Brooklyn. At a recent lecture in Germany, Oldham told the audience, “I won’t be there, I’ll tell you why. It’s a television show. Twenty years ago it was an incredible party in the Waldorf-Astoria where everybody could behave exactly as they could 20 years ago. And then it became a business. I think it’s healthier to stay home. I think those people basically hijacked the name ‘rock ‘n’ roll.’”
