Pictures also include record producer Richard Perry with Jane Fonda; participants in ceremonies Bill Withers, Natalie Maines and emcee Paul Williams, who started the evening by acknowledging the death of pop icon Dick Clark.

“He was an amazing man; he was as sweet and as kind as he was productive,” said Williams, recalling the legendary host of TV’s “American Bandstand,” and the influence he and Don Cornelius of “Soul Train” had on teenagers in the U.S.  “(Clark) has been a huge part of all of our lives. As people who make music for a living, I think we all owe him a huge round of applause.”
