classof2011 2 Kids In The Hall (Of Fame)

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame announced it’s list of nominees Tuesday; the question on the table – who will graduate with the Class of 2011?

The full list of nominee’s is as follows: [lastfm]Alice Cooper, [lastfm]Beastie Boys[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bon Jovi[/lastfm], [lastfm]Chic[/lastfm], [lastfm]Neil Diamond[/lastfm], [lastfm]Donovan[/lastfm], [lastfm]Dr. John[/lastfm], [lastfm]J. Geils Band[/lastfm], [lastfm]LL Cool J[/lastfm], [lastfm]Darlene Love[/lastfm], [lastfm]Laura Nyro[/lastfm], [lastfm]Donna Summer[/lastfm], [lastfm]Joe Tex[/lastfm], [lastfm]Tom Waits[/lastfm], [lastfm]Chuck Willis[/lastfm].

To be eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination which means that this years nominee’s had to have released their first recording no later than 1985.

This announcement is just the first step of the process; ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters and the inductees will be announced in December. The Induction Ceremony will take place on March 14 next year at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Personally, this Webmaster is incredibly excited about Tom Waits’ nomination–a much deserved and long-overdue nod from the Hall.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be televised live on Madison Square Garden’s national music television network, Fuse.
