Rockin n' Rollin

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited by my boss, Mica Ertegun, to the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. 
It was one of those pinch yourself moments where you're not sure if it's a dream or really happening. I tried to let it all soak in but that never works. So, I did what I do best, documented it with tons of photos and videos! 

After a short cocktail party and dinner, the ceremony started followed by performances by the 2011 inductees and some very special guest. It was a great honor to spend the night surrounded by such wonderful, beautiful, dazzling and famous people.

Neil Diamond performing Sweet Caroline with a personal ending at our table!
I apologize for the TERRIBLE background singing and awful honking laughs.

Me, Grace Potter, and Susie. 

Growing up surrounded by music, literally, made this night that much more special. Having parents and a brother who are so involved in music has taught me to really appreciate everything from the "notes not played" to the people who make these events possible. 

Sitting behind Yann Wenner, Michael Douglass, Catherine Zeta Jones, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa might also have had some effect on the evening. Not to mention, Elton John, John Legend, Tom Waits, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, John Mayer, Grace Potter, Michael J. Fox, Liv Tyler.. I could keep going but you get the picture! 

Thank you to everyone who made my night so special!

P.s. I wore these heels for 7 hours! Impressive.
