Did anyone else here get to go? We had a great time. We saw Paul McCartney arrive right before the ceremony. He looked great and waved to us few fans who were hanging around outside before the show.It worked out well...we got inside about 10 minutes after the show started because of this and were able to miss Mylie Cyrus on stage! Unfortunately it was when she was performing with Joan Jett who we would've liked to have seen. I'm a big Green Day fan and went to the show to see them get inducted. They put on a great show as always and did "Boys" with Ringo. Paul and Ringo seemed to be having a lot of fun joking around when Paul was inducting Ringo. We were able to see their table from our seats in the balcony. Yoko was sitting at their table along with Jerry Lee Lewis. Paul was actually up dancing to Green Day during their set.   The end was a treat when Paul and Ringo sang together with all of the other performers on stage. It was an unforgettable night! I'm glad we were able to be there. I was also able to attend Green Day's show at the House of Blues on Thursday. They give the best live performance of any band I've ever seen!!!

Bill Withers was also inducted. He was hilarious. He sounded more like a stand up comedian. Stevie Wonder inducted him. Bill made some comment about not using the teleprompter and Stevie said he hadn't used it either. Bill said something about not taking too long in his speech because Stevie would have to use the bathroom soon. He made a lot of other funny comments. Check out some of the highlights online to see if you can find some of his comments.

A group of people had been waiting at the side entrance of the hotel that was across from an entrance to Public Hall. A few performers had come out of the hotel....The Foo Fighters and Jason White from Green Day. It was getting close to the start of the show and most of the people left. A few of us wondered if Green Day was still inside since Jason had just come out. We didn't want to miss the show but didn't want to miss seeing them so close up. A security person said to wait around a few minutes because someone big was coming.

An SUV pulled up to the doors across the street and Paul got out along with his wife. They didn't go inside right away. People yelled out to him and he turned a few times and waved at us before he went inside.
