Diversity. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is ‘about that life’ as it welcomes one of its most diverse classes into the Hall of Fame this year. The Cleveland, Ohio-based museum announced the 2017 class of inductees Tuesday morning, which includes Hip-hop-icon/rapper/actor, the late-Tupac Shakur; progressive English rock band, Yes; Seattle rock band, Pearl Jam; one of the best-selling rock bands in the world, Journey, symphonic/art English rock band Electric Light Orchestra; and folk singer/writer/musician Joan Baez.
Tupac Shakur and Pearl Jam were voted into the HOF on their first nomination. Also a musician who is known for his guitar riffs, ability to ‘do it all’ and who has had a lasting impact on multiple genres of music including rock, hip-hop, soul, and electronic dance music, Nile Rogers, will receive an award with the class for “Musical Excellence.”
The Rock Hall will feature new exhibits of the inductees opening in Cleveland on March 30. The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place at the Barclays Center in New York on April 7.
