"I've been gone a long time, I understand that", the ex-Journey singer said.

Among the inductees this year was folksinger Joan Baez. Baez talked about the musicians that inspired her and the causes she was passionate about.

The induction of ELO, Yes and, especially Journey, were greeted with huge ovations, showing that the decision Rock Hall voters have made to embrace '70s superstars, who have always been eligible but passed over, has been overwhelmingly popular.

"My granddaughter had no clue who I was until I took her backstage to a Taylor Swift concert", said Baez, who added that her granddaughter took a selfie with Swift and now had "newfound respect for her grandmother". Those are the things that really kept us together when we felt the responsibility to the music was bigger than ourselves or our own personal needs. The induction ceremony will also contain a Prince tribute by Lenny Kravitz and a ceremony honoring lifetime achievement recipient Nile Rodgers that will be led by Pharrell.
