Hall of Fame Rolls in New Rockers
It took a few tries, but the late legendary singer-songwriter Laura Nyro finally got her ticket punched to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame today. Others who will receive the high honor on April 14 at the hallowed Hall in Cleveland:
Guns N’ Roses
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Small Faces/The Faces
The Ahmet Ertegun (non performer) Award goes to producer/rock impresario Don Kirshner; Freddie King gets the Early Influence Award; Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns will receive Awards for Musical Excellence.
The Moody Blues, America, Hall & Oates will have to wait until next year. Again! HBO will air the festivities in early May.
Drive safe. Play nice. Think peace.
