Sal Rock n Roll Hall of Fame 2016

December 18, 201516 min
Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Deep Purple, Chicago and N.W.A have all been elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 31st annual induction ceremony will take place on April 8th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. HBO will broadcast the ceremony later in the spring. Artists become eligible, 25 years after the release of their first recordings. Cheap Trick, Chicago and Steve Miller, all of whom have long been eligible, were all elected on their first nomination. Deep Purple and N.W.A have been nominated before. The public's five favorites were counted as a “fans’ ballot” along with the hundreds of industry insiders who voted. Three of the fan selections were elected: Chicago (#1), Deep Purple (#4) and Steve Miller (#5). Since Cheap Trick, Chicago and Deep Purple have all undergone personnel changes over the years, the Hall designates who exactly will be enshrined: Cheap Trick: Guitarist Rick Nielsen, singer Robin Zander, former drummer Bun E. Carlos and bassist Tom Petersson
