Curtis Mayfield Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Though illness prevented him from attending, Atlanta resident and musician Curtis Mayfield was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. This marked Mayfield’s second induction, as he and his group, the Impressions, were selected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. Mayfield died later on Dec. 26, 1999, in Roswell, Georgia.
