After many years of public outcry by true rock and roll fans, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame have finally inducted Pat Benatar into their hall. We have written many times about how sad and irresponsible it has been by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for ignoring Pat Benatar all these years. Finally, they get it right and induct Pat Benatar and Neil Geraldo together into the  Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

In a brief interview with Pat Benatar and Neil Geraldo by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, the two musicians spoke about how happy they were to be inducted together since it has been a partnership between the two since the beginning. The impact that Pat Benarat had on rock and roll as a tough in your face female vocalist was groundbreaking in so many ways. However, it was the songs that the two recorded together, especially during their 80s heyday period that became such a part of mass culture and loved by so many that should have had the duo in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame a long time ago.

The remaining performers inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame included Carly Simon who we argued for in our article written by Michael Miller called   10 Reasons Why Carly Simon Belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It’s interesting that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame also decided to induct Dolly Parton who publicly said she did not want to be put into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. It will be interesting to see if she shows up at the awards ceremony.

Other performers inducted include Duran Duran, Eminem, Eurythmics, and Lionel Richie. It’s interesting that among all the musical performers inducted this year, only Pat Benatar and Judas Priest are true rockers in the sense of the phrase rock and roll.

Outside of the musical performer category is the Musical Excellence award that will be given to Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Judas Priest.

The Early Influence Award will be given to  Harry Belafonte and Elizabeth Cotten.

Ahmet Ertegun Award will be given to Allen Grubman, Jimmy Iovine and Sylvia Robinson.

It will be over six months before the artist can accept their induction into the rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame as the induction ceremony will be held on November 5 in Los Angeles.
