Move over ABBA, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, and The Stooges -- you aren't the only ones being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Gay super exec David Geffen will also be honored for his contributions to the music industry. Besides signing artists like Joni Mitchell, John Lennon, Cher, The Eagles, Tom Waits, and Donna Summer via Asylum and Geffen record labels, Geffen has also served as producer for films like Risky Business and Beetlejuice and backed blockbuster Broadway shows like Dreamgirls and Cats. The awards ceremony will take place March 15 in New York City.
