2004 The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted Prince at their annual ceremony in New York City. He was induced by Alicia Keys (“He’s the only man that I’ve ever seen that lights a stage on fire”) and OutKast. During the ceremony, Prince performed with Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, as part of a tribute to George Harrison, and unleashed a guitar solo that did indeed set that stage on fire. Other inductees that year included Harrison, Bob Seger, the Dells, ZZ Top, Jackson Browne, and Traffic.
