                    The red carpet was lined three deep with members of the media from all over the country for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions held at Public Auditorium. Throngs of fans jockeyed for position hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the legends of music as they arrived. Among those who graced the red carpet were Darlene Love, inducted in 2011, and her fellow inductee from last year, Alice Cooper, and his wife of 36 years, Cheryl. Funk icon, George Clinton, of Parliament Funkadelic, and his band mate, Michael Hampton, really worked the crowd, as did David Arquette, who came in to support his friends, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
    Unlike the ceremonies in New York, the inductions in Cleveland are open to the public. The auditorium sold out with around 7,000 fans, in addition to the 1,200 VIP guests seated at tables on the main floor. Among our local VIPs in attendance were Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson; Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cavaliers and the soon-to-open Horseshoe Casino; Senator George Voinovich; Cleveland Browns’ head coach, Pat Shurmer; rocker Michael Stanley; and Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO of the Cleveland Clinic. The festivities began with a rousing set by Green Day, and the evening continued on for another six hours.
    The Rock Hall inductions capped off a week of terrific public events around town. “Thanks to the incredible support from the City of Cleveland, the State of Ohio, foundations, corporations and individuals, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum raised more than $7 million for the 2012 Hall of Fame Induction Week,” said Margaret Thresher, director of communications at the Rock Hall.
