NEW YORK - Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper and Tom Waits lead the latest class to be inducted into the http://www.rockhall.com" target="_self">Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday.

They'll joined by piano maestros Leon Russell and Dr. John and "Wall of Sound" singer Darlene Love.

Their work was to be celebrated at the annual Waldorf Astoria black-tie dinner, then in perpetuity at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. A tape of the ceremony is to air March 20 on Fuse.

The rock hall has slightly shifted its format this year, doing the inductions first then gathering artists together for performances. In past years, the performances have been interspersed throughout the night.
