ROCK HALL: Class of 2019 Nominees Are...

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the nominees for possible induction in 2019. In alphabetical order:

The Cure  Def Leppard  Devo  Janet Jackson  Kraftwerk  LL Cool J  MC5  Stevie Nicks  John Prine  Radiohead  Rage Against the Machine  Roxy Music  Rufus and Chaka Kahn  Todd Rundgren  The Zombies

To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Six of this year’s 15 nominees are on the ballot for the first time:

Def Leppard  Devo  John Prine  Roxy Music  Stevie Nicks  Todd Rundgren

We reached out to Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, who tells us, “It’s a great honor for Roxy Music to be nominated for the U.S. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So many great musicians from the history of rock and roll are there already and it would be fantastic to be amongst them.”

Ballots will be sent to an international voting body of more than 1000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. And once again, voting is open to the public right now through 11:59 p.m. ET on December 9th. Just head over to RockHall.com to place your vote. Voting is capped at one ballot per day. The Top 5 artists selected by the public will make up a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2019 inductees.

Inductees will be announced in December, and the 2019 Induction Ceremony will be held on March 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Ticket on-sale information will be announced in January. The show will be taped for broadcast on HBO later in the spring.
