RockHall.comJohn Fogerty, Jackson Browne and Chris Cornell are among the artists who've been added to the list of performers and presenters at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, taking place April 18 at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE.  Fogerty and Browne, both Rock Hall inductees themselves, will salute new honoree Randy Newman with a performance.

As for Cornell, the Soundgarden frontman will induct fellow Seattle rockers Heart.  In addition, members of two other legendary Seattle grunge acts -- Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell -- will join Heart for their performance that evening.  Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson always have been very supportive of the younger musicians in their Seattle hometown, who in turn revere them.

Meanwhile, Carole King will perform in honor of her ex-manager and producer, Lou Adler, who will receive a lifetime achievement award at the ceremony.  Famed stoner comedy duo Cheech & Chong will present Adler with his award.  In addition, R&B star Usher will be on hand to sing a tribute to super-producer Quincy Jones, who's also receiving a lifetime achievement honor.

Legendary actor/singer Harry Belafonte and filmmaker Spike Lee will induct the rap group Public Enemy, who also will perform at the ceremony.

Previously-announced presenters and performers include The Eagles' Don Henley, who will induct Newman; The Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, who will welcome Rush into the Rock Hall; John Mayer, who will induct Albert King and perform for the late blues legend along with emerging guitar whiz Gary Clark Jr.; and Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson, who will salute Donna Summer with a performance.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will be filmed by HBO and will air on the cable network on May 17.
