Peter Gabriel and Cat Stevens Reaction To Rock Hall Inductions

12/18/2013
.
(Radio.com) On Tuesday morning (December 17), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their 2014 inductees, which included Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, and Cat Stevens. Needless to say, those who made it in were excited to receive the honor and more than happy to share that excitement with their fans.

Cat Stevens, who now goes by the name Yusuf Islam, released a statement via Facebook, admitting he was a little embarrassed by how happy he was to make it into the Rock Hall.

"It will certainly bring happiness to a lot of my loyal fans, and fulfillment to all those who have long-campaigned for it not to mention how kinda embarrassingly good it makes me feel too," Yusuf said. "The sleepy Peace Train is beginning to chug its way slowly uphill, again."

Peter Gabriel, who entered the Rock Hall in 2010 with former band Genesis, was excited to be honored again, this time as a solo artist. "Because this is a recognition for all your work, it means a lot more to me than an award for a single or an album," he wrote. "It's also great to get some acknowledgement from your peers. I'm looking forward to coming in April."

Gabriel did not show up to the induction in 2010, but told Rolling Stone he will definitely be there this time. He's still unsure whether he'll actually play the show though, telling the mag, "I'll probably play, though if I do "In Your Eyes," it'll take 10 minutes and that might be all the time I have." more on this story
