U2 frontman Bono will pay the ultimate tribute to the boss of his record label by inducting him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week.
Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, will receive the honour at New York's Waldorf Hotel on March 19th.
Bono will induct Blackwell in the non-performer category, after the legendary music business figure signed U2 over 20 years ago.
Moby, the Foo Fighters and 'N SYNC will join Bono as presenters at the 16th annual ceremony.
Steely Dan, Queen, Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, Aerosmith and Ritchie Valens are amongst the other musicians set to be honoured.
