Neil Diamond and Alice Cooper lead this year’s group of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. MSNBC has the chosen five -- and says people are upset about who was left out.
“Tom Waits, Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Dr. John my personal favorite, and Darlene Love will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year... So, I’ve got a discussion going about this on scoopblog and people are incensed that Bon Jovi got left off. They’re saying maybe Kiss should have been inducted instead. A lot of discussion there.”
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation nominating committee picks 15 performers for the ballot. The bands Kiss and Rush top this year’s list of notables that weren’t even among the 15 nominees. CNN has more on the rules for being selected.
“According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, artists, they become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. That’s a long time. And they must also have made significant music contributions. So the nominees are then voted on by a panel of about 500 music experts and the artists with the most votes guess what -- they get inducted.”
Entertainment Weekly gives its top three reasons Bon Jovi, who was a nominee, should have been inducted.
“[First] Um, have you heard ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ ?... [Second,] The fact that this was a look for a while. If that’s not Rock and Roll Hall of Fame worthy, I don’t know what is... [And] They were just named the [number one] worldwide touring act of 2010 by Billboard.”
While some were upset that their faves didn’t make it, the artists who made the cut had all been eligible for more than 10 years. Neil Diamond spoke to the BBC about his almost 20-year wait.
“I kind of figured they'd get around to me at some point... I'm glad they did it before I'm dead.”
Other artists nominated, but not inducted include J. Geils Band, Donna Summer, and LL Cool J. Let us know in our comments section who you think should be next into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
