IRON MAIDEN, NEW YORK DOLLS, FOO FIGHTERS AMONG THE NOMINEES FOR THE ROCK N’ROLL HALL OF FAME 2021 CLASS
Iron Maiden, New York Dolls, Foo Fighters, Rage Against The Machine and among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame‘s class of 2021. The top vote-getters will be announced in May and inducted in a Cleveland, Ohio, ceremony in the fall.
To be eligible for this year’s ballot, each nominee’s first single or album had to have been released in 1995 or earlier.
“This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame celebrates,” Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation chairman John Sykes says in a statement. “These nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them.”
According to the Hall Of Fame, the Iron Maiden members that would get inducted would include the current lineup of singer Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, drummer Nicko McBrain, and guitarists Adrian Smith, Dave Murray and Janick Gers, along with former singer Paul Di’Anno, former drummer Clive Burr, and former guitarist Dennis Stratton.
A voter pool of more than 1,000 artists, historians, journalists, and members of the music industry will select the new class. Starting Wednesday, fans will also have a chance to take part in the process by voting at Rockhall.com or at an interactive kiosk at the museum in Cleveland. Their selections will count as a single “fan ballot” that gets tabulated along with the others.
