The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is right around the corner, and just like in years past, it’ll likely feature an incredible all-star jam session at the end of the evening.
In honor of the pending ceremony, here are five stellar jam sessions from year’s past.
“Roll Over Beethoven” (1986)
When Chuck Berry was inducted in 1986, the all-star jam was something to behold. Joining Berry for a performance of “Roll Over Beethoven” was Keith Richards, Neil Young and Steve Winwood. For good measure, they were accompanied by Billy Joel and Jerry Lee Lewis.
“Green Onions” (1992)
Just look at that packed stage! From Johnny Cash to Steve Cropper to The Edge, the amount of talent on stage during the 1992 all-star jam is simply unreal!
“Tie Your Mother Down” (2001)
One of Queen’s best guitar tracks, the band were joined by Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins for a raucous rendition of “Tie Your Mother Down” during the 2001 induction ceremony.
“Pride and Joy” (2015)
Easily one of the best guitar performances from the most recent batch of Rock Hall induction ceremonies, Double Trouble were joined by John Mayer, Doyle Bramhall and Gary Clark Jr. for “Pride and Joy.”
“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (2004)
This performance is so good it hurts! Watch in awe as Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and Dhani Harrison just play the hell out of this Beatles classic.
