NEW YORK, March 14 (UPI) -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's New York induction ceremony wasn't without its tense moments.
That's not such a surprise, since it is rock 'n' roll -- but the suprise was the tense moment had nothing to do with the rowdiest of the inductees, Black Sabbath, but from '80s new wavers, Blondie.
Deborah Harry had barred some of her original band members from playing with Blondie during its three-song set and one of them confronted her as the band accepted its award Monday night at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the New York Daily News reported.
The group has been in a legal battle over money, the newspaper said.
Frank Infante asked Harry on stage: "Can't we play? Pretty please?"
To which a clearly annoyed Harry replied: "Can't you see my band is up there?"
"I thought Blondie was being inducted," Infante said.
In addition to Blondie and Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Sex Pistols and Miles Davis were inducted in the the Rock Hall of Fame. A&M Records founders Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss were inducted in the non-performer category.
