Ringo Starr, Lou Reed, Green Day Get Places in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Drum roll, please! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said Tuesday that its Class of 2015 will include Ringo Starr and the late Lou Reed. Starr — the former drummer for The Beatles — is the last of his bandmates to receive the honor.

Other inductees for 2015 include Green Day, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Bill Withers, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and The "5" Royales. Artists become eligible for induction to the Cleveland-based museum 25 years after the release of their first record.
