Stevie receives first R&RHoF nomination

Stevie Nicks has received her first nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a solo artist. Stevie first became eligible for induction in 2006 — 25 years after the release of her first solo recording Bella Donna.

Although Stevie is already an inductee as a member of Fleetwood Mac, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members have largely ignored her solo work, despite having released seven albums (selling more than 15 million copies worldwide) and having been nominated seven times for Grammy Awards since 1982. But the tide of change may finally be here, as fans can now cast the deciding votes for their nominees (as of 2012).

Stevie’s cultural impact (American Horror Story, Night of a Thousand Stevies, School of Rock) and profound influence on generations of artists (Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, and Lorde, to name just a few) are simply undeniable. Fans have known this for years, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members finally seem to be coming around, too, if early voting is any indication of things to come (Stevie currently has a commanding lead over the other nominees).

Here is a list of the 2019 nominees in alphabetical order:

  • The Cure (second nomination)
  • Def Leppard (first nomination)
  • Devo (first nomination)
  • Janet Jackson (third nomination)
  • Kraftwerk (fifth nomination)
  • LL Cool J (fifth nomination)
  • MC5 (fourth nomination)
  • Stevie Nicks (already an inductee with Fleetwood Mac, but first solo nomination)
  • John Prine (first nomination)
  • Radiohead (second nomination)
  • Rage Against the Machine (second nomination)
  • Roxy Music (first nomination)
  • Rufus & Chaka Khan (third nomination)
  • Todd Rundgren (first nomination)
  • The Zombies (fourth nomination)

Vote for Stevie!
