Stevie Ray Vaughan Rock Hall induction adds Gary Clark Jr

Texas blues guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. has been added to the performance tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble at this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 18.

Jimmie Vaughan has already been confirmed to pay tribute to his brother, while John Mayer will induct the band into the Rock Hall.

The late Texas blues legend topped the fan ballot for the event with more than 18 million votes – more than 5 million ahead of the next nominee.

To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years earlier.

The 30th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place at Cleveland’s Public Hall, and HBO will broadcast the event on May 30.
