Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announces noms

Rush, Public Enemy, Albert King, N.W.A. among nominees

Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the 15 nominees for 2013 induction on Wednesday night, with longtime absentees Rush joining a crowd of new and returning artists.

The Canadian prog trio, who had been eligible for inclusion for well over a decade without receiving a nomination, had become something of a rallying cause for the Hall of Fame’s critics, as had fellow first-time nominee Deep Purple. Other first-timers include ’80s hip-hop acts Public Enemy and N.W.A., bluesman Albert King, the Marvelettes and Procol Harum.

Previously nominated acts up for inclusion again include disco group Chic and the recently deceased Donna Summer, as well as the Meters, Heart, Kraftwerk, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Randy Newman.

The Rock Hall’s class of 2013 will be inducted in a ceremony next April.
