At a press conference Tuesday at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist and 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Flea announced the list of performer inductees and Ahmet Ertegun Award recipients for induction. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2013:
· Albert King

Ahmet Ertegun (non performer) Award:
· Lou Adler
· Quincy Jones
Scheduled for Thursday, April 18, the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. This marks the first time since 1993 that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be on the West Coast. The ceremony will again be open to the public, as it was in 2009 and 2012 in Cleveland.
“We are thrilled to announce this year’s class of inductees, which again represents the broad, compelling and significant definition of rock and roll,” said Joel Peresman, President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, in a news release.
According to the Associated Press, the ceremony will mark the end of a long wait for fans of five of those six acts, who’ve been eligible for entry for some time. Rap group Public Enemy was inducted on its first ballot appearance.
