On the occasion that Genesis, Iggy Pop, The Hollies, ABBA and Jimmy Cliff were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last Monday, let’s look back to 2006 when jazz legend Miles Davis was honored posthumously with induction to the hall of fame of rock and roll.

Miles was inducted by Herbie Hancock.

The 21st annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions were held March 13 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. Black Sabbath, the Sex Pistols, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blondie, Miles Davis and record moguls Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss were inducted into the hall.

Davis’ bio page is quite nice, by the way.

In announcing its 2006 inductees, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said, “Miles Davis was one of the 20th Century’s most creative artists changing the sound of popular music many times in his six decade career.”
