Paul McCartney To Salute Ringo Starr

Sir Paul McCartney will induct his fellow former Beatle Ringo Starr into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next month.

The drummer will become the last of the Fab Four to become a member of the Cleveland, Ohio museum as a solo artist.

McCartney, who became the second Beatles star to receive the honour in 1999, will join Stevie Wonder, Patti Smith, J. Geils Band singer Peter Wolf and Steve Cropper among the presenters at this year's star-studded event.

Wonder will induct Bill Withers, Smith will salute her late friend Lou Reed and Wolf will pay tribute to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

Meanwhile, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Tom Morello, John Legend and Jimmy Vaughan will perform at the annual bash, which will be held on April 18 in Cleveland.

Green Day, guitar great Stevie Ray Vaughan, soul group the '5' Royales and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts will also be inducted as part of the class of 2015.
