ROCK HALL INDUCTIONS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions are set for tomorrow night. And some of those making the induction speeches might end up getting more attention than the inductees themselves. Paul McCartney will be the one who will talk-in his former Beatles cohort Ringo Starr. Stevie Wonder will help induct Bill Withers. Patti Smith will do the honors for the late Lou Reed and Fall Out Boy will help induct Green Day. Stevie Ray Vaughan will be ushered in by John Mayer. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will be inducted by Miley Cyrus.

Ringo Starr says he's got a pretty good idea who was behind his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. (refers to musician Bruce Springsteen) ((longer version of cut used in wrap))

SUGE KNIGHT TO STAND TRIAL

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You've heard of people who get sick at the sight of doctors. It looks like Suge (SHUG) Knight gets the willies from being in court. For the fifth time since his arrest in February, the co-founder of Death Row Records was taken from court to the hospital. No word on what is ailing him this time. Knight's latest medical crisis came shortly after a judge in Los Angeles ruled prosecutors had enough on him for him to stand trial for murder and attempted murder. He's charged with running two men down with his pickup truck at a fast food joint in Compton, California. Knight has claimed through his attorneys that he was attacked and was fleeting for his life.
