A few months ago we presented you with this year’s Rock & Roll HOF first time eligible to be inducted artists. Now the five grand artist that have been honored with the flattering inductions have been announced, and leading the pack is no other then the pop queen [tag]Madonna[/tag], thanks to her debut single, “Everybody,” that was released twenty-five years ago in 1982. Madonna and John Mellencamp will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, alongside Leonard Cohen, The Ventures and the Dave Clark Five. Philly Soul songwriter/producer team Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff will be presented the Ahmet Ertegun Award (previously known as the non-performer category) and blues harmonica player Little Walter will be inducted in the sideman category. The induction ceremony will take place on March 10th, 2008 at New York’s Waldorf Astoria. Worth mentioning is the fact that my personal favorites [tag]Beastie Boys[/tag] surprisingly didn’t make the cut.
