The new nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced today:
J. Geils Band
LL Cool J
To be eligible for nomination, the artist must have released his/her first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination – meaning 1985 for the current crop of 2011 nominees.
More than 500 ballots will be sent to voters, and the inductees will be announced in December. The 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on March 14, 2011 at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC.
Personally, we’re rooting for Tom Waits, Donna Summer, Alice Cooper and Donovan because we think they’d do a way-cool, bang-up all-star jam on “Atlantis.” Or maybe a medley of “She Works Hard for the Money” and “Only Women Bleed.”
