Welcome to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame…

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the Class of 2012 inductees:

Guns N’ Roses

Beastie Boys

The Red Hot Chili Peppers

Laura Nyro


The Small Faces/The Faces

Don’t know about you, but we are absolutely thrilled at the possibility of Slash, Ron Wood, Flea and Ad-Rock crashing their way through the classic “Atlantis.” Gonna be a showstopper…

And just in case you’ve forgotten, these are the folks who were on the ballot, but didn’t manage to garner enough votes: Donna Summer, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Heart, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Eric B. & Rakim, War, the Cure and the Spinners. Better luck next time, folks…

The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies will be held in Cleveland on Saturday, April 14.

    Interesting thing that happened with Freddie King. He was on the ballot, but got selected as an ‘early influence’.

  2. J Hunter says:

    For once, there’s nobody on the ballot that I can say got Jobbed. War was an amazing group, and the Cure made some terrific sounds in their day, but I wouldn’t put them ahead of anybody who got in this year. I agree with Roger, though. Freddie King deserved to get in, but not through a loophole.
