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.
It will be interesting to see if the original Guns n' Roses lineup plays together at the event.
Too bad about the Cure. Oh well.
I thought that the Hall only inducted 5 acts each year? Did they change it?
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.
I doubt we'd get Axel and Slash on the same stage- but stranger things have happened... Or have they?
Apparently Freddie King is getting inducted as well as an "early influence". Good to see him getting his due.
Rock Hall adds 6 groups to list of inductees

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.
