THEY HIT THE SECRET CHORD THAT DAVID PLAYED AND IT PLEASED THE LORD: While the fact that John Mellencamp would be getting into the Rock Hall was disclosed some time ago, and anyone could tell you that Madonna was a Nolan Ryan-level first ballot shoo-in for the Hall, we finally have a formal announcement--joining Madge and Mellencamp as inductees this year:
  • Leonard Cohen ("Hallelujah," "Everybody Knows")
  • The Ventures ("Theme From Hawaii Five-O")
  • The Dave Clark Five
  • Little Walter ("sideman" category, blues harmonica player)
  • Gamble & Huff (producers behind the Philadelphia International label)

(Not making the cut? Afrika Bambatta, Beastie Boys, Chic, and Donna Summer)
