Due to a sudden illness, Rod Steward won’t be in attendance to his own induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. He had been scheduled to appear with the classic lineup of Faces, but will now miss the ceremony. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rod Steward have released a joint statement:
Unfortunately Rod is battling the flu this week and regrettably he is unable to accept his induction in person in Cleveland.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame congratulates Rod on his 2012 Induction and wishes him a speedy recovery.
“I’m absolutely devastated,” Stewart said. “Shattered that I’m going to miss my second induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – and this time alongside my mates.”
