David Letterman will replace Neil Young to induct Pearl Jam into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Friday, because Young is too sick to attend. “Due to illness, Neil Young is regrettably no longer able to induct Pearl Jam at this Year’s Induction Ceremony,” the Rock Hall said in a statement. “The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is thrilled that David Letterman has agreed to induct Pearl Jam this Friday night at the 32nd Annual Induction Ceremony.” The grunge rockers will be inducted alongside ELO, Joan Baez, Journey, Nile Rodgers, Tupac Shakur and YES at a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Letterman and the Pearl Jam go back a long way — the band first played the Late Show in 1996. Eddie Vedder was also one of Letterman’s final guests, performing “Better Man” on his third-last show in 2015.
