You’ll recall the articulate refusal of the Sex Pistols, previously featured….
Black Sabbath and Blondie are among the veteran acts who have been inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York.
The Sex Pistols were also honoured, but refused to attend the event, having compared the organisation to “urine in wine” in an open letter.
US rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd and late trumpeter Miles Davis also joined.
Three former Blondie members walked off stage when lead singer Deborah Harry refused to let them perform live.
Former band members Frank Infante, Nigel Harrison and Gary Valentine were not included in the line-up when Blondie reformed in 1997.
Infante asked Harry if they would be allowed to perform with the band at the ceremony, but she replied: “Can’t you see my band is up there?”
