New Inductees For Rock And Roll Hall Of FamePlay
Nirvana, KISS, Hall and Oates and Linda Ronstadt are among those just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2014.
NPR Music writer and editor Stephen Thompson joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson and Robin Young to discuss the new inductees.
“I think one thing people need to keep in mind about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is that it’s a legacy award. It’s something that you win when you’ve been in the business for at least 25 years. So any artist that’s in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has to have been active at or before 1988. So, it’s an award for a collective body of work up to this point,” Thompson says.
