Rock Hall Of Fame Inductees Revealed
The inductees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame have been officially revealed, and the artists involved has reacted with joy. Prog-legends Rush lead the list of inductees after being shunned by the hall for years. They will join blues guitarist Albert King, political rappers Public Enemy, singer Donna Summer, and Randy Newman who scored the "Toy Story" films. "It's a terrific honor and we'll show up smiling," said Rush's singer and bassist Geddy Lee (via HenneMusic). "It made my mom happy, so that's worth it." He gave a special thank you to Rush's legion of dedicated fans. "It was a cause they championed," he says. "I'm very relieved for them and we share this honor with them, for sure." Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart were grateful to receive recognition from such an institution: "We're always traveling and out there doing it. It can start to feel like you're a tree falling in the forest, but nobody notices. So this kind of acknowledgment is really sweet." Rush led the public vote, which was open for the first time in the Hall's history. However, the public vote only counted for one "fan ballot" among 600 other ballots. The final ceremony will take place on April 18 2013 in L.A., and will broadcast on HBO on May 18. If you want to attend the ceremony, tickets will be available from January 25. Do you think other more deserving artists missed out on a place in the Hall Of Fame? Who would you add? Let us know in the comments.
