Six Artists Inducted in the 2018 Class
Your 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees are: Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone and the Award for Early Influence: Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Pretty good list, and very close to our ballot: Rock Hall Nominees. The big news is that The Moody Blues are finally in, relieving the Hall of Fame of their most glaring omission. The Moodies have been rocking the world for 50+ years, and just this year celebrated the 50th Anniversary of their timeless 1967 release Days of Future Passed. They should have been inducted decades ago, but better late than never. The silver lining? Orlando fans get to see them celebrate their induction with a show at CFE Arena in January.
As far as the other inductees, as you will see on our ballot, we found Judas Priest more deserving than The Cars, but both were deserving.
Nina Simone – who knows?
