Chic, Donna Summer Among Nominees For 2011 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Class

The nominees for induction into the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class were announced September 28, and once again Chic, one of my fave groups of the disco era has been nominated.

Chic is starting to become the Susan Lucci's of this award in terms of making it to this point several times but falling short of induction..

This year's nominees are:  

Alice Cooper
Beastie Boys
Bon Jovi
Neil Diamond
Dr. John
J. Geils Band
LL Cool J
Darlene Love
Laura Nyro
Donna Summer
Joe Tex
Tom Waits
Chuck Willis
I see other favorite artists LL Cool J, Donna Summer and Joe Tex are also on this year's list of nominees.   The ballots have already been mailed out to more than 500 voters, and the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in December 2010.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2011 Induction Ceremony will take place on March 14, 2011 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Here's hoping that Chic finally wins and gets to show up at the induction ceremony.
