This morning in a press release, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland officially announced its list of inductees for 2014. The inductees include the following peformers:
- Peter Gabriel
- Cat Stevens
- Linda Ronstadt
- Hall and Oates
Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band will be given the Award for Musical Excellence. Non-performers receiving the Ahmet Ertegun award include Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham, original managers behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, respectively.
The list of inductees was decided by over 700 voting members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. Again this year, music fans were given a chance to vote for their favorites online, selecting their top five as a “fan ballot” to be counted with those of the voting members. KISS led the pack in fan votes.
The official induction ceremony will be held on April 10, 2014 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The ceremony will be open to the public, and tickets will go on sale in January. The induction ceremony will also be broadcast by HBO in May.
Congratulations to this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees!
