Veteran entertainment executive Irving Azoff was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame over the weekend.
Originally scheduled to have been held in May in Cleveland, the event was postponed to November in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and was converted into a virtual ceremony.
During a special program broadcast live on HBO and HBO Max Saturday, members of The Eagles teased their former manager.
“Irving Azoff in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? … Why not?” Don Henley said in a pre-recorded video. “It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve inducted somebody who couldn’t sing or play an instrument.”
“We love him — all the guys in the Eagles love him,” added Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh. “He has a beautiful house that we bought him and a beautiful car that we bought him. It’s a wonderful life that we made possible for him.”
Azoff, who is chairman of Full Stop Management that represents recording artists, became a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2020 class by receiving the Ahmet Ertegun Award for industry professionals.
