REM Singer Michael Stipe to Induct Nirvana Into Rock Hall
Announcing additional details regarding this year's ceremony, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has officially confirmed that REM singer Michael Stipe will induct Nirvana into the prestigious institution.

Furthermore, guitar master Tom Morello will induct KISS, whereas Bruce Springsteen will fittingly induct the E Street Band. Speaking of KISS, the band has confirmed that all four members of the current lineup will attend the ceremony, but without performing.

AsĀ Rolling Stone reports, Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin will pay tribute to Peter Gabriel, the Eagles' Glenn Frey will induct his former bandleader Linda Ronstadt, Questlove of the Roots is set to pay tribute to Hall and Oates, while Peter Asher is going to induct Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham. It remains unknown who will induct Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam).

In related Nirvana news, Courtney Love recently toldĀ NME that a Kurt Cobain musical is "very likely" to happen.

"After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances [Bean Cobain, Kurt and Courtney's daughter] and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen," Courtney explained.

"There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theatre with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives," Love concluded.
