Throughout the lockdown, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been doing their bit to keep music fans sane by sharing classic footage from their abundant archives via YouTube, including performances from Prince, Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, U2, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel, plus recent additions including the 2014 Nirvana reunion, Pink Floyd and more– watch below.

There are currently over 200 videos available to stream on the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame YouTube channel, with new performances being added on a weekly basis. You’ll find unique collaborations such as Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Richard Wright performing “Wish You Were Here” with the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan; Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan’s live “Forever Young” collaboration; and Foo Fighters’ teaming up with members of Rush (including the late Neil Peart) for an epic “2112: Overture.”

Along with an overabundance of incredible live performances, reunions and collaborations, you’ll find an awesome collection of induction speeches, like this hilarious retrospective from Steve Tyler and Joe Perry remembering what it was like coming up in the shadow of the almighty Led Zeppelin – so in awe of the band, they couldn’t even get mad at them for stealing their girlfriends!
