Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 Nominees Announced

5

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just announced the list of its 2011 nominees. There are some names that are being considered for the very first time – including Donovan, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi and Dr. John – as well as a few others that have appeared on previous lists but stopped shy of being inducted – such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Donna Summer, Chic and Darlene Love. The whole list, just below:

 

Alice Cooper

The Beastie Boys

Bon Jovi

Chic

Neil Diamond

Donovan

Dr. John

The J. Geils Band

LL Cool J

Darlene Love

Laura Nyro

Donna Summer

Joe Tex

Tom Waits

Chuck Willis

 

This is really kind of a pre-pre-list; a whittled down list of final nominees will be announced in December. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 26th Annual Induction Ceremony happens on March 14, 2011, at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City. And once again, apparently, KISS and Chubby Checker are not invited. [MTV]
