Nirvana, Kiss, Deep Purple and Cat Stevens are among the 16 nominees for the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
A panel of 600 artists, historians and music industry insiders will vote on which five will take their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next April. You can also have your say via the “fans’ ballot“.
The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees are:
- Deep Purple
- Hall & Oates
- The Replacements
- Peter Gabriel
- LL Cool J
- Link Wray
- The Meters
- The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
- The Zombies
- Cat Stevens
- Linda Ronstadt.
To be eligible for the 2014 ballot, the acts must have released their first single or album in 1988 or earlier. Nirvana have therefore made the cut the first year that they are eligible. Other first time nominees are Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel (although he was inducted as a member of Genesis in 2009), Cat Stevens, the Replacements, Linda Ronstadt, Link Wray, Yes and the Zombies.
