"At the end of the day, Steve Miller, unquestionably from his musical legacy and influence, deserved to be inducted. That he feels this way I feel badly for him. But, again, we're thrilled and happy he was inducted. He deserves to be inducted. We're happy to have him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," Mr. Peresman added.
"The definition of `rock and roll' means different things to different people, but as broad as the classifications may be, they all share a common love of the music," Peresman said.
