Veteran rocker Peter Frampton and blues star Buddy Guy were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Tennessee on Tuesday night.

The British guitarist was one of 12 stars awarded medals at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium ahead of a celebratory concert, and there were also posthumous honors for Roy Orbison and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Also inducted during Tuesday’s ceremony were Randy Bachman from Bachman Turner Overdrive, country singer Barbara Mandrell, country musician Jimmy Capps, and guitarists Corki Casey O’Dell, Velma Smith and Will Lee.

Posthumous inductions went to Vaughan and his blues rock band Double Trouble and pedal steel guitarist Ben Keith.

Speaking after the induction ceremony, Bachman says, “I don’t like the word rock star or superstar. I am a guitar player, a songwriter who got lucky because I stayed at it and didn’t give up, long enough that people noticed me.”

Orbison received the Iconic Riff Award posthumously for his song “Oh, Pretty Woman.”
