Iron Maiden will not be inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame this year, as they did not gather enough votes to be included in the “class of 2021”.
Although the band came in fourth in the recent public balot, with Foo Fighters finishing fifth, Dave Grohl’s band eventually garnered more votes from a body of 1,200 artists, including Hall of Fame inductees, historians and musicians. .
The Foo Fighters along with Tina Turner, Carole King, Todd Rundgren and The Go-Go’s are now part of the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame and will be officially announced at the Oct. 30 ceremony at Ohio’s Cleveland Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. It is worth noting that Dave Grohl is already a member, since he was inducted with Nirvana in 2014.
In addition, Randy Rhoads will be honored with the Musical Excellence Award, which is given to artists, musicians, producers, etc. whose authenticity and influence on creation have had a dramatic impact on music.
