Public Enemy join RnR Hall Of Fame
Public Enemy are among the acts announced to be inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame for 2013. Other inductees are the late Donna Summer, Rush, Randy Newman, Heart and Albert King.
LA Times reports that "veteran record executive Lou Adler and producer-arranger-composer-conductor Quincy Jones will [also] join the hall of fame as recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award, named for the Atlantic Records co-founder who also was a driving force behind the creation of the Rock Hall.... the new inductees will be welcomed into the Rock Hall on April 18 in a ceremony that will take place for the first time in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre."
Acts nominated this year but who missed the cut include The Meters, Kraftwerk, Chic and NWA.
