There are more than a few guitar highlights on the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live — Volume 2, a 10-track vinyl collection due out September 16 and featuring performances from various Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
Among the tracks are the Who playing “Pinball Wizard,” Bruce Springsteen and Axl Rose teaming up on the Beatles’ “Come Together,” John Fogerty & Friends’ controversial rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Green River” (including Springsteen), the Doors performing “Roadhouse Blues” with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, the Young Rascals’ reuniting for “Groovin’” and Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks’ acoustic version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.”
The album will be pressed on red-and-orange swirl vinyl, with proceeds going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for museum exhibits and educational programs.
