Last night, Derek and I went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2013 Induction Ceremony at
Derek's company did the VIP Merchandise for the event so yesterday morning they got asked if they wanted tickets. Yes, please! We went with his parents and some others and ended up with VIP seats! Ah-mazing.
The bad news? I was already at work when we got the news about going....and I wore ripped jeans.
I met the gang down at L.A. Live straight from work. We ate some sushi and watched as everyone walked by in their tux/gowns as I sat there in my Gap jeans and Black sweater. Ugh. Fashion Fail.
Once we got inside, so many more people were dressed casual so I felt a little better...
The speeches (minus the 30 min ramble from Flavor Flavvvvv i swear i have to say his name so awkwardly every time) were so inspiring.
2013 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Inductees:
The performances were ones i'll never forget. I got to hear Randy Newman sing "We Love L.A." LIVE after hearing it at every Lakers game, Jennifer Hudson sang in honor of Donna Summer, John Mayer spoke and played guitar in honor of his idol Albert King, Carol King performed for Lou Adler's induction, Oprah spoke and Usher performed recognizing Quincy Jones, and we ended the night with Public Enemy, Heart (out seats were right behind their kids!), and RUSH.
You can watch the event on HBO in May!!
