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.
