IN 1968, MAMA CASS ELLIOT SANG "DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF Me," and, for a few moving moments at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies in New York City on Jan. 12, that's exactly what everyone did. Michelle Phillips paid tribute to her late Mamas and Papas bandmate, who died of a heart attack in 1974. Next to Phillips onstage at the Waldorf-Astoria, as the group celebrated its induction into the Hall, was Cass's only child, Owen Elliot-Kugell, 30, an L.A. homemaker. "It was an honor to be there to represent my mom," said Elliot-Kugell, who was 7 when her look-alike mother died. "It really meant a lot to me." The rest of the black-tie evening tended toward the raucous, thanks to performances by inductees Santana, Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles and Lloyd Price. It seemed like old times, especially to Jimmy Buffett, who officially inducted the Eagles. "Here I am," he said, "still opening for this damn band."
