Ringo Starr Inducted, Green Day Shine at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

"It's like my record collection is actually sitting in this room," said Billie Joe Armstrong midway through his acceptance speech at the 30th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. "The fact that I heard Patti Smith's Horses as a kid, and now there you are standing there."
Later in the evening Paul McCartney came out to induct Starr. "We were four guys from Liverpool that set out on this journey," he said. "Eventually we got on the Ed Sullivan Show and got really famous…Ringo is just something so special. When he's playing behind you, you don't have to look and wonder if he's going to speed up or slow down. It's just there. It's a great honor for me to induce him…Oh, induct him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
