Long Island Music Hall of FameTonight saw the Long Island Music Hall of Fame 5th Induction Awards Gala, held at The Paramount, in Huntington, New York.

Amongst those inducted were concert promoter Ron Delsener, and Roger Waters was lined up to be the one inducting him. According to press reports, Roger was also said to be scheduled to perform, as well as Dionne Warwick. However, the organisers have since told us that these mainstream press reports were incorrect, and Roger was NEVER scheduled to perform during the event, but just present "Uncle Ronnie" (as Roger called him during the ceremony) with his award. Others being honoured included record producer Clive Davis, the Billy Joel Band, lyricist Gerry Goffin, producer Steve Thompson, singer Debbie Gibson, rapper Kurtis Blow and DMC of Run DMC.

At the time we posted this story originally, tickets were still available from and from the Paramount box office on 631-673-7300. General seating tickets were $75 and $150.

Our thanks to the team at the Long Island Music Hall of Fame for their help post-event to clarify matters relating to the nature of Roger's appearance at the event, which (for those who recall reading this story originally) resulted in this news item being revised and clarified.
