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.

If you overslept Tuesday morning, you may have missed the big news! Nirvana, Kiss and Peter Gabriel will all be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year! Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens also made the cut and will be welcomed into the elite group on April 10th at the Barclays Center. Artists only become eligible 25 years after their first release, and believe it or not it's been 25 years since Nirvana came out with their first album, Bleach!

On the music scene: how Madonna's going to kick your ass, plus why the Black Crowes are mad at Maxim and Neverland Ranch could be yours!
Hi everyone I'm Andrea Rene and you are watching the music news from get the daily****
It was announced yesterday that the Material girl has finally picked a title and released date for her highly anticipated forthcoming album. Her last studio album for Warner Music Group is called "Hard Candy." Not only does Madonna love candy, but as she says "its going to kick your ass, but make you feel good." It features superhot producers Timbaland and Danja, plus Justin Timberlake appears on mulitple tracks. JT also just happens to be the one who'll induct Madge into the rock and roll hall of fame. Look for her new album to hit stores on April 29th with her first single 'Four Minutes" out at the end of March.
Rockers the Black Crowes have a new album coming out next week, and they hope that no one will read the Maxim magazine review panning it, because, well, Maxim didn't even listen to the ablum! In the March issues of Maxim, a reviewer says the groups latest disc called "Warpaint" is worth 2 and half stars out of five, but, turns out the reviewer never got an advanced copy and based the review off their only single released "Goodbye daughters of the revolution." The crowes rightly thought this was unfair and managed to get an apology from the publication. But let's be honest, does anyone read reviews from Maxim anyway?
Michael Jackson's re-release of his worldwide smash album "Thriller" is doing great on the charts, so he probably shouldn't have any problems coming up with the $24 million dollars he needs to save Neverland Ranch from going up for auction. Yes, the infamous property near Santa Barabara, CA is once again on the chopping block if Jackson doesn't pay up by March 19th. I think it would be interesting to see who would by that gigantic playground! But considering Michael is still worth hundreds of millions, I don't think he should have any problems paying up.

Yet another American Idol contestant forgets the lyrics to his song. Jason Castro flubbed up during his Tuesday performance of Bob Dylan’s ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’. After his song, the dreadlocked singer said he knew he lost some lines and then all of the judges gave Castro a bad review. His earlier performance of Bob Marley’s ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ also received a less-than-good judgment from the panel. All contestants sang selections from the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame. It’s down to the final four, and America votes off one A-I hopeful Wednesday on Fox.
Moving on to Dancing with the Stars, it celebrated episode number 100 with the audience filled with lots of fans from all over the nation as well as former contestants. Even previous season winners and runner-ups hit the floor for another pro-partner dancing experience. Even with the celebration in the air, there was also a moment of defeat for R&B singer, Mario. The 21-year-old and his partner received the boot Tuesday on the results show after their Waltz and Jive from the previous night’s performance earned the duo 53 out of 60 points, placing them in third with scoring, but still being voted off.

The Mirage joins forces with Grateful Dead Drummer Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain to Reignite the Las Vegas Strip with Dramatic Transformation of Iconic Volcano
