Cat Stevens Still “Undecided” About Coming to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Show
The clock is ticking. But Cat Stevens– actually now Yusuf Islam– is still “undecided” about coming to his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show induction next month. I’m told by a close friend that he still doesn’t know if he’ll make the trip from England.
Of course, everyone is crossing their fingers that he will come and pick up his trophy. When he was Cat Stevens, Islam was incredibly popular and influential. His many hits are played on the radio all the time, from “Morning Has Broken” to “Peace Train.”
As Islam, he’s also made some excellent records– even if they’re not has widely distributed as in the past. Check out his latest album “Roadsinger” on www.yusufislam.com
The Rock Hall is also probably anxious to get Islam on their show. They already have problems with Nirvana, KISS, and Linda Ronstadt not performing at the Barclays Center show. Without Islam, they’ll be down to Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, and the E Street Band.
