This year's inductees to the UK Music Hall of Fame are to include Led Zeppelin, Brian Wilson, Dusty Springfield and Rod Stewart.
Channel 4 and Initial made the announcement that the above four acts would be among a selection of acclaimed artists making the 2006 cut. Now in its third year, the 2006 ceremony will take place on November 14 at London's Alexandra Palace.
I was there on Sunday, you know. The ice cream man wasn't. The bastard.
The ceremony will be hosted by Dermot O'Leary and will be broadcast on Channel 4 on November 16. Radio 2 will broadcast the event live from 10pm 'til midnight.
Joss Stone and Patti LaBelle are due to perform a couple of Springfield classics together on the night, and Wolfmother will pay tribute to Led Zeppelin. Whether that means they'll play one of their own songs or a Page and Plant number, I don't know. I can't tell the difference half the time.
Beatles producer Sir George Martin will receive an Honorary Membership.
