Kiss, Nirvana, Deep Purple nominated for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction
Kiss, Nirvana, Deep Purple and Yes are amongst the nominees announced for next year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions. As Blabbermouth reports, next year’s ceremony will be the second time that fan votes will be conducted and counted amongst the 600 ballots cast by members of the Rock Hall. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley noted that part of the band’s induction is dependent on Rolling Stone editor and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame founder Jann Wenner, who it would seem is not a fan of the band: "Well, it depends on who lives longer, us or Jann Wenner," Stanley said. "Look, the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame is marketing," he continued. "You've got a bunch of faceless people in a back room who trademark a name that sounds very official. Well, if you had thought of it first, you would have been the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am one of the biggest Laura Nyro fans. I still listen to that stuff incessantly. Laura Nyro does not belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Songwriter Hall of Fame? Absolutely.

"It's absurd for anybody to look around and hear the acts and artists who cite us as an inspiration, and then tell me that we're not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I would certainly accept on their (the fans) behalf because it seems to be a major sore spot for them, but I don't need the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame." Other nominees this year include Hall and Oates, LL Cool J, the Zombies, Chic and N.W.A. You can cast your votes here.
