The class of 2011 will be formally feted on March 14th at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and while accolades are everywhere for the aforementioned, Rob Zombie has shared his sentiments via Twitter, writing, "3 mega-greats in R&R Hall of Fame this year! Finally Alice Cooper, Leon Russell and Tom Waits! Fuck yeah."
Zombie and Cooper united earlier this year to bring the long-awaited, highly-anticipated Gruesome Twosome tour to fruition. Stated Cooper in our exclusive interview, "Rob's like my little brother... we've been trying to do this show for so long." Following on the success of that first run, the pair then reunited for the Halloween Hootenanny Tour this past fall.
