New Members Are Inducted Into The Rock Hall Of Fame

 
Posted April 11th, 2014 @ 8:11am

Kiss, Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band have been ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Barclays Center. 

They were joined Thursday by duo Hall & Oates, British rocker Peter Gabriel, 1970s folkie Cat Stevens and the absent Linda Ronstadt. 

Nirvana was the emotional centerpiece. The trio rooted in the Seattle-area punk rock scene was voted into the hall in its first year of eligibility. 

Original Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley had wanted the replacements for ex-bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss to perform at the ceremony instead of the original four. The result: Kiss's music went unheard. 

Springsteen's 1999 entrance into the hall without the E Street Band was a sore point for some members, who finally got their due.

Don't forget, Bruce and his E Street Band will be in Nashville in concert this coming Thursday night. Your last chance to win tickets is on the contest section of this website!
