Yoko Ono accepts for John Lennon

'Thank you.  I'd first like to thank Paul for being here tonight.  I think John would have been really pleased.  It's really grand, Paul, thank you.  Being inducted as a Beatle for John was to be expected.  After all, the Liverpool band was bigger than... Buddha.  But being inducted for his solo effort would have made John very happy, because it had a very special place in his heart.  So I'm very thankful.  On behalf of John, I would like to thank all the people who voted for him.  Thank you."
