Eminem, Duran Duran, Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2022.
Eurythmics, Carly Simon, Judas Priest and Pat Benatar will also be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.
Kate Bush, Beck, DEVO, Fela Kuti, MC5, New York Dolls, Rage Against The Machine and Dionne Warwick were part of the initial list of candidates for 2022, but did not make the final cut.
The honors, voted on by more than 1,000 artists, historians and music industry professionals, “had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture and helped change the rock ‘n’ roll course,” said John Sykes, president of Rock Hall . , in a statement.
The 2022 event, which will be the Hall’s 37th annual induction ceremony, will be held on November 5 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The announcement comes after Parton initially denied the honor, saying she “did not deserve the right.” Last month, however, she changed her position and confirmed that she would accept the honor if selected.
Parton explained that at the time of her resignation statement, she did not realize that the institute already housed numerous artists from other genres outside the rock world. “When I said that, I always thought Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was for rock people,” he said.
“And recently I found out that that doesn’t have to be the case. But if they can’t go there to be recognized, where do they go? I consider myself a rock artist. But of course there’s more to it than that.”
Eminem, Duran Duran and Pat Benatar were among the artists who won the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame fan vote this year.
Last year, Tina Turner, Carole King, The Go – Go’s, JAY-Z, Foo Fighters and Todd Rundgren were honored in the performers category; Kraftwerk, Charley Patton and Gil Scott-Heron, in the category of early influences; LL Cool J, Billy Preston and Randy Rhoads, in the musical excellence category; and Clarence Avant received the Ahmet Ertegun Award.
