Actually, there are at least two I can think of (assuming by 'American' you mean citizens of the USA)

Oops, I'd
a) not remembered that Dan Aykroyd was in the chorus
b) not realised that he was Canadian.  Lucky chap.

So who was the other? (I figure you know...)

Sir Bob!

I only ever remember Dan Aykroyd because his inclusion in the line-up seems so incongruous.

Yep, I think Legs was there first even if his answer was more oblique.

I guess it was even easier than I expected.

I can't think of a question off the top of my head, so if you've got one, Vince, fire away.

The inductee must surely be Chuck Berry, and I'd guess t'other would be Keith Richards.
