Hey it’s Scott Alan,
It’s that time again. You guessed it: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination announcement time!!!
Deep Purple, Yes and Cheap Trick are among the 15 artists nominated for possible induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The top vote-getters will will be announced in December and inducted next April at a ceremony in New York. The other nominees are The Cars, Steve Miller, Chicago, Los Lobos, Nine Inch Nails, Janet Jackson, N.W.A., The Smiths, Chaka Khan, Chic, The JBs and the Spinners.
For the fourth consecutive year, the public will be able to vote alongside the more than 800 artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall voting body. From now until December 9th, fans can vote on RollingStone.com for the nominees they’d like to see inducted. The top five acts will comprise a “fan’s ballot” that will count as one of the ballots that determine the class of 2016.
