“This year's ceremony succeeded in broadening the hall's stylistic borders.” - Matea Gold and Randy Lewis, the Los Angeles Times

 Trey Anastasio on Genesis:
"Every musical rule and boundary was questioned and broken. It's impossible to overstate what impact this band and musical philosophy had on me as a young musician. I'm forever in their debt."

Billie Joe Armstrong on the Stooges:
“They symbolize the destruction of flower power and the creation of raw power.”

Iggy Pop on being inducted:
“I think it’s Fitzgerald who said there’s no second acts in American life..this particular group of friends had the luxury of a second act, so thanks.”

David Geffen on receiving the Ahmet Ertegun Lifetime Achievement Award from Jackson Browne:
“I’m a little nervous…I never dreamed I’d be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Here’s why: I have no talent except being able to love and recognize it on other people.”

Graham Nash of the Hollies after being inducted by Steven Van Zandt: “What a trip this has been — amazing!”

Jimmy Cliff following his induction by Wyclef Jean:
"Reggae music is a music that was not conceived in the United States like most of the music forms that we know…so to be standing here with you today… is a great honor."

Anni-Frid Lyngstad of ABBA after being inducted by the Bee Gees:
“It has been an absolutely fantastic evening, I’m so thrilled, it has also been a very emotional evening.”
