David Geffen is among other inductees, along with songwriters including Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry, Jesse Stone, Mort Shuman and Otis Blackwell.

Acts in the nominations list (which was revealed in September) who haven't been included in the 2010 ceremony include Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kiss.
