Newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Amy | December 15th, 2010

This morning, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation has announced their newest inductees into the acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Alice Cooper Band
Neil Diamond
Dr. John
Darlene Love
Tom Waits

Each inductee was chosen by more than 500 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, and became eligible for the recognition 25 years after the release of their first recording. President and CEO Joel Peresman said today of the five newest members, “They truly represent the variety of people that have defined and continue to influence music and the business of Rock and Roll.”

What do you think? Did the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation get it right? Myriad voices on twitter seem to think Jon Bon Jovi was deserving of the spot, but it would seem the voters spoke otherwise. Maybe next year? Regardless, a big congratulations to the newest artists on the list!
