Next Year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees Anounced
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the final list of acts they're inducting next year. Find out who's in and what group got seriously snubbed:
2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are Rush, Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Donna Summer, and Public Enemy. The ceremony will take place on April 18th in Los Angeles and air May 18th on HBO.
Rush will finally be joining the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, after being eligible for 14 years. Those who were nominated this year but did not get in are Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Chic, Kraftwerk, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Procol Harum, The Marvelettes, The Meters, N.W.A. and Deep Purple (who, in my mind, is the biggest snub). This was Deep Purple's first nomination, even though they've been eligible for 19 years (I think they deserve to be first ballot inductees...weird).
Producers Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which is given to non-performers. For more information on the inductees, visit rockhall.com.
