Dave Grohl, Stevie Nicks, Kenny Rogers, Lyle Lovett, Meat Loaf, Emmylou Harris, Cheyenne Jackson, Constantine Maroulis, Jerry Moss and Take 6 have signed on to be either a presenter and/or performer at the 2012 Songwriters Hall of Fame Annual Induction and Awards Dinner. 2012's dinner will be held 14 June at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

Inductees at the 43rd annual Songwriters Hall of Fame event include Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Seger, Don Schlitz, Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones and Jim Steinman. The Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Bette Midler, with Ne-Yo receiving the Hal David Starlight Award.

Dave Grohl's stock continues to rise. Philly.com reports that he tipped $1000 (twice) for a few drinks on Memorial Day. Yet his biographer tells Gibson.com that Dave Grohl still sees himself as a drummer, rather than a songwriter.

Thanks for the report to Michael Leonard, Gibson.com

    I think I'm missing something.The title leads me to believe Dave is being inducted... But.. It's says he's just performing. God damn it UG

    Another very misleading title from UG. I love reading about all of my favorite bands/musicians, but the "completely out of context" and "one-liner" headers are getting old. Come on guys! You can do better than this! You don't have to resort to sensationalism to get views. We're already here and hungry for the latest music news. Just present these stories for what they are. We're still going to read them...
