rock and roll Guns N Roses, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Guns N’ Roses, Beastie Boys, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the 2012 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Others receiving the honor include late singer/songwriter Laura Nyro, folk-rock icon Donovan, and UK rock band The Faces whose lineup featured Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood.

Fellow 2012 nominees The Cure, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and Eric B. & Rakim did not receive enough votes for entry and will have to wait another year.

Blues icon Freddie King will be induced as an early icon, while producers Glyn Johns (The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Who), Tom Dowd (Ray Charles, Eric Clapton), and Cosimo Matassa (Ray Charles, Fats Domino) will receive the Award for Musical Excellence. “The Man with the Golden Ear,” producer Don Kirshner (The Monkees, Kansas) will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which honors non-performers.

The induction ceremony will take place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on April 14th, with a television broadcast set to air on HBO in May.
