LAURA NYRO!

Re: And the Inductees Are...

Laura Nyro is the most deserving who will probably not get in.

I'm surprised The Cure didn't get in yet. RHCP and GNR seem like shoo-ins.

Laura...

IS in, Bill- what I posted a couple of posts up is this year's inductees, announced today.

Donovan, The Faces and Nyro have been eligible since 1990, 1991 and 1992- lengthy waits for all three.

Re: Laura...

It will be interesting to see if the original Guns n' Roses lineup plays together at the event.

Re: Laura...

Too bad about the Cure. Oh well.
I thought that the Hall only inducted 5 acts each year? Did they change it?

Re: And the Inductees Are...

Very good class. Laura Nyro's selection is shocking, as is the Cure's non-selection. Beastie Boys, RHCP, and GNR were absolute shoo-ins. This would be a fun concert.

Re: And the Inductees Are...

I doubt we'd get Axel and Slash on the same stage- but stranger things have happened... Or have they?

Re: And the Inductees Are...

Apparently Freddie King is getting inducted as well as an "early influence". Good to see him getting his due.

Backing Groups Inducted...

Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says six additional groups will be inducted this year after a committee determined they should be recognized with previously enshrined original lead singers.

The Blue Caps, the Comets, the Crickets, the Famous Flames, the Midnighters and the Miracles will be inducted at the April ceremony in Cleveland.

The Crickets' Buddy Holly and the Famous Flames' James Brown were inducted in 1986. The Comets' Bill Haley and the Miracles' Smokey Robinson were inducted in 1987. The Midnighters' Hank Ballard was inducted in 1990 and the Blue Caps' Gene Vincent was inducted in 1998.

Previously announced inductees are the Beastie Boys, Donovan, Guns N' Roses, Laura Nyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Small Faces/The Faces, Freddie King, Don Kirshner, Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns.
