On March 15th the following names will become forever shrined in the halls that are Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Swedish pop group Abba, prog rockers Genesis, reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, English rock outfit The Hollies, and none other than the punk band that had previously been rejected seven times, The Stooges. Sounds like a good time for a reunion.
Among those left out this year include LL Cool J, the Red Hot Chili Peppers (Whoa has it been a bad week!), Kiss, and singer/songwriter Laura Nyro.
To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, an act must have released its first single or album 25 years before the nomination.
The 25th annual induction ceremony will be held on March 15th at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan, New York.
