The heart of rock & roll really is still beating.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame staged its 29th annual induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn back in April, and HBO will air excerpts of the event on Saturday. This year's inductees spanned six decades of music, including Nirvana, KISS, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, the E Street Band and, for the first time ever, two managers: The Beatles' Brian Epstein and The Rolling Stones' Andrew Loog Oldham.
Here are 10 highlights from the ceremony that will be shown on Saturday's special — as well as five backstage moments that viewers won't get to see:
Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield
Andrew Garfield hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, and got some advice from his not-so-surprise guest, Emma Stone — as well as a liplock from Coldplay singer Chris Martin.
Chris Martin is speaking out for the first time since he and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their "conscious uncoupling."
"Everyone in their life goes through challenges, whether it's love or money or kids or illness," Martin told BBC Radio 1.
James Van Der Beek, Kevin Connolly, Majandra Delfino
"Love doesn't make sense," hopeless romantic Ted told almost-runaway bride Robin last week in the penultimate episode of CBS's long-running romcom How I Met Your Mother. That episode ended, as we knew it would, with Robin and Barney tying the knot, because as Ted concluded in his Speech That Sums The Series Up: "Love is the best thing we do." True words, but even truer were these words: "I won't lie, that was a long weekend."
Gywneth Paltrow, Chris Martin
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have separated after 11 years of marriage, the couple announced on Paltrow's GOOP website.
In a blog post titled "Conscious Uncoupling," the notoriously private duo wrote a heartfelt statement to the public. "It is...
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has joined The Voice as a key advisor, NBC announced.
Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, haven't ruled out the possibility of having a third child — but Paltrow said she's hesitant because of a pregnancy a few years ago that resulted in a miscarriage.
"I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third," Paltrow tells the UK's Daily Mail. "It didn't work out and I nearly died. So I am like, 'Are we good here or should we go back and try again?'"
Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi
Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band got 12.12.12: The Concert for Sandy Relief off to a rollicking start Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden with a poignant opening set that included "Land of Hopes and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball" and "My City of Ruins."
The concert donated 100 percent of its proceeds to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, a large-scale relief effort launched specifically to aid people in the tri-state area whose lives were impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The concert was telecast commercial-free on 37 television networks in the U.S., as well as on radio stations and streaming sites around the country and...
Coldplay paid tribute to the late Adam "MCA" Yauch with an odd, mournful cover of The Beastie Boys' exuberant hit "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)."

The performance took place at Coldplay's show at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night. Although a cause of death has not been announced, Yauch had been battling cancer since 2009. He was 47.
The Office, Ricky Gervais
Ricky Gervais may have applied for the top job at Dunder Mifflin, but don't expect to see him on The Office come fall.
The creator and star of the original BBC version of the sitcom criticized the hourlong season finale of the American Office on his blog Friday, writing, "If you're going to jump a shark, jump a big one."

Gervais, 49, is an executive producer on the U.S. adaptation and guest-starred earlier this season, reprising...
