Coldplay lead singer, Chris Martin inducted Peter Gabriel, the lead singer of the historic progressive rock band, Genesis into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame ceremony on Thursday night. Chris continued being his usual funny self, appearing to be reading from the book of Genesis while he read out, "An angel of the lord descended and appeared before Phil the Collins......and Phil the Collins said unto him, who are you O angel?" as Chris paused for a second, deep in character and relishing the speech before finishing with "I am Gabriel" to a round of applause as Peter Gabriel himself appearing on stage which was shortly followed by a one off special live duet of Washing Of The Water by Chris and Gabriel. You can watch the high quality video of Chris Martin's speech and part of the live performance below
