Cheap Trick's Fame Has Risen With Rock Hall Induction News

(Classic Rock) Cheap Trick frontman Robin Zander says people in his hometown ask for his autograph since hearing the band would be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The band will be entered into the Rock Hall along with Deep Purple, Chicago, Steve Miller and N.W.A at the April 8 ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

And despite years of success and gold and platinum records, Zander says his Florida neighbours only started asking for his autograph once the Rock Hall came calling.

He tells Canoe.com: "The thing I've noticed is the change in people where I live. I live in a very small town where I know everybody. And now when I walk around, people I've known for 23 years are coming up to me and going, 'Oh man, congratulations. Can I get your autograph for my kids?' That's how I see the difference."
