The nomincation list for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2010 has been released.
Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after their debut release, so all the candidates released their first single no later than 1984. Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, including music-industry executives and previous inductees.
Here are the nominees:
- The Chantels
- Jimmy Cliff
- The Hollies
- LL Cool J
- Darlene Love
- Laura Nyro
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers
- The Stooges
- Donna Summer
Five of the twelve nominees will be inducted during a gala ceremony Monday, March 15, 2010. Honorees will be announced in January.
I hope Kiss wins. This is the first time they've even been nominated, which truly shocks me.
Who would you like to see inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame (on or not on the list)?
