Just in time for the wallet-busting, gift-giving season, Time Life will release a nine-DVD box called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live on October 20.
The set — one part of the HOF's 25th-anniversary celebration, which also includes a mega-cool concert that's happening in NYC rather than in Cleveland — includes 125 live performances from a quarter-century of Rock Hall induction ceremonies.
In addition to all the usual suspects — Bono, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon are all here — the collection features performances by R.E.M. with Eddie Vedder and 1995's Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which did take place in Cleveland. Plus, there's tons of John Fogerty.
Highlight for local fans has gotta be “The Train Kept A-Rollin’,” featuring Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ron Wood, Joe Perry, Flea and Metallica from April's bash in Cleveland.
The DVDs will set you back $119.96 (it's available here). But think of the joy you'll bring to that aging rock fan in your life as they watch Sheryl Crow pop up onstage about a zillion times. —Michael Gallucci
