Yes, we’re smack-dab in the middle of Never-Ending Awards Season, but we’re already looking past this Sunday evening’s Grammy Awards show toward the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, which are slated to take place on Monday, March 14.

Especially after we heard that Neil Young will be on hand to induct Tom Waits, as one musical maverick to another…

Here’s the rest of the newly announced presenters:

Post continues below...

Alice Cooper will be inducted by Rob Zombie
Neil Diamond will be inducted by Paul Simon
Dr. John will be inducted by John Legend
Darlene Love will be inducted by Bette Midler
Tom Waits will be inducted by Neil Young
Jac Holzman will be inducted by John Densmore
Art Rupe will be inducted by Lloyd Price
Leon Russell will be inducted by Elton John

OK, we don’t really get the whole John LegendDr. John match-up, but the rest of it looks like a pretty solid bunch of pairings to us…
