I'm thrilled that we have a decent number of Classic Rock artists inducted this year! I love that Ozzy, Foreigner and Peter Frampton will be inducted, and that Jimmy Buffett will be honored. (It would've been nice if he had been honored before he died.)

This is Ozzy's second election into the Hall, having been inducted with Black Sabbath in 2006. He becomes the 27th artist to achieve this honor along with Eric Clapton (3x), the four BeatlesCrosbyStillsNash & YoungStevie NicksPaul SimonPeter GabrielCurtis MayfieldRonnie WoodRod StewartJeff BeckLou ReedTina TurnerCarole KingJimmy PageDave GrohlMichael JacksonClyde McPhatterJohnny CarterGregg Rolie, and Sammy Strain.
