Rock Hall of Fame 2014 Inductees Announced

Nirvana, fan-favorite KISS among inductees

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:

 

  • Nirvana
  • KISS
  • 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!

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
