When Daryl Hall and John Oates took the mike at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies Thursday night - in a gala at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. - Hall reflected on both the honor and the injustice of being the first "homegrown Philly act" inducted. He listed many deserving names, from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes to Todd Rundgren. It was part of a big night for the Cleveland-based Hall of Fame, as the E Street Band, Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, and high-shoed rockers Kiss were inducted.

A knowing grin crossed Bruce Springsteen's face as he sang the rueful "Thunder Road" line "So maybe we're not so young anymore" Thursday night at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford. But on such a musically satisfying, dramatically packaged night like this one was, did the aging issue really matter? No, the 49-year-old Springsteen doesn't slide across the stage on his knees, or leap blindly into the audience, as he used to do. Nor does he run himself ragged in vocals and interplay with the band, the sort of hijinks (and screwups)

WE LIKE TO picture our rock stars spending their tour off-days engaging in various manifestations of debauchery. But if you're Max Weinberg, you're spending your Tuesday night in Philly in a most un-debauched manner. Tonight, Weinberg's boss, Bruce Springsteen, and his co-workers in the E Street Band are performing in Boston. Wednesday, they open their sold-out, two-night Wells Fargo Center engagement. In between, Weinberg has a date to speak at the National Museum of American Jewish History on Independence Mall.

Most tribute bands boast that they look and act like the bands they cover, and there are more than a few Bruce Springsteen tribute bands that do just that. But for Tramps Like Us, paying tribute to the Boss and the "E" Street Band has nothing to do with appearances - it's all about the music. "We don't do any of the banter or the stage antics or anything like that," said Mark Salore, Tramps guitarist and lead singer with Tramps, which will be playing Friday night at Phoenixville's Colonial Theatre.

A LOT OF memories will be cherished when the Spectrum is demolished to make way for an entertainment and shopping complex. On July 15, 1981, I sat in Section Z to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Late WMMR deejay Ed Sciaky introduced the Boss. I was hooked on Springsteen and have seen him perform 20 times since. Matt Engel, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Bruce Springsteen brought a new E Street Band to the Spectrum last night. The players were the same, of course, but the attitude and attack of the music on stage were as different from the last tour as his current studio album Tunnel of Love is from 1984's Born in the U.S.A. Springsteen gambled on Tunnel of Love - hoping that by addressing the emotional issues of love, he could avoid the rat trap of superstar expectations awakened by the mass acceptance of Born in the U.S.A. Records, however, can be tailored for intimacy; rock shows are a much more combustible medium.

  It's been quite a year for Nils Lofgren. In April the guitar virtuoso was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. And now comes a voluminous box set that celebrates his own work. Face the Music (Fantasy ***1/2) is a 10-disc career retrospective - nine CDs of music and one DVD - that presents the cream of Lofgren's output over nearly five decades, starting with his acclaimed but poor-selling band Grin. "Most of this music has been out of print, much to my disappointment," the 63-year-old Lofgren says from his home in Scottsdale, Ariz.

August in Atlantic City gets busy this weekend with a high-volume Comedy Central comic, a pop-metal double bill that includes a band of 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and the second of two free massive country-pop concerts on the beach. The comedian in question is Lewis Black, the confrontational shouter who has been a regular guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart since 1996. Black's "Back in Black" segments, with AC/DC intro music, are typically vituperative rants that build to a sarcastic crescendo on an ever renewable theme: just how maddeningly, frustratingly, offensively stupid and disappointing the world is. Black's act is to work himself into such a state that it seems like his head might pop off in the middle of one of his hyper-aggravated routines.

The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in April, will be shown on HBO in a three-hour version (edited from five) at 8 on Saturday night. This year's show makes for a far more entertainingly compelling exercise in self-congratulation than usual. That's partly due to the talent level. In its first year of eligibility, Nirvana, the greatest of grunge-era bands, was inducted. The HBO show comes to a climactic conclusion with surviving members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear joined by four female singers - Joan Jett, Lorde, Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, and a particularly fabulous St. Vincent - filling in for the late Kurt Cobain.

NEW YORK - It was a big night in Brooklyn on Thursday at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, as Philadelphia pop-soul duo Hall & Oates joined Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, cartoon hard-rockers Kiss, and others in entering the Cleveland-based Hall as its 2014 class. Other inductees included '70s and '80s prog-rocker Peter Gabriel, singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, and country-rock hit maker Linda Ronstadt. She suffers from Parkinson's disease and did not attend the show but was paid tribute to in song by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, and Carrie Underwood.

Suing Glenn Beck . . . . . . is fast becoming a national pastime. The 50-year-old former Fox News analyst, who maintains his creds as an independent thinker by dissing, insulting, and generally alienating everyone else, is being sued for defamation by Abdulrahman Alharbi , 20, a Saudi Arabian student injured in the Boston Marathon attack last April. Filed in U.S. District Court in Boston, Alharbi's suit claims that on his webcast Blaze , Beck maligned the student by identifying him as "an active participant" in the attack in addition to the Tsarnaev brothers.

LIKE TO SEE and hear how other offspring of famous musicians are cutting their own paths? Two more are coming to town soon. Jake Clemons When he picks up the sax and wails - sometimes as a sax soloist in the E Street Band - Jake Clemons blows that horn a lot like his late uncle, Clarence. But on his own albums and at live gigs, Jake loses most of those Jersey soul-rockin' bar-band instincts. His own taste in composing and singing (and guitar and piano playing) is smoother, popier, more aligned with English adult rockers like Coldplay's Chris Martin than to Bruce Springsteen and his crew.

It was late last summer when Larry Kirwan first thought about bringing the saga of Black 47 to a close. "We were coming back from a gig in Buffalo, and I remember thinking, 'Wow, the band sounded really good,' " the frontman for the Celtic-rock sextet said from his home in New York. "And I thought, 'This would be a good time to call it a day - go out when you're sounding really good rather than for other reasons.' . . . Everyone in the band was down with it. It feels like a great time" to finish.

* LILYHAMMER. Season 2 premieres tomorrow, Netflix.   DECADES of touring - with and without Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - have helped make rocker/actor Steven Van Zandt at home all over the world, but he says he never expected to be quite so big in Norway. "Lilyhammer," the show in which Van Zandt plays an American mobster in witness protection who asks to be relocated to Lillehammer, Norway (because he liked what he saw during the 1994 Winter Olympics), returns for a second season on Netflix tomorrow.
