My Boys Are Hall of Fame-bound!
Billboard.com reports that R.E.M, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the Ronettes, and Van Halen will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 12 at New York's Waldorf-Astoria. The five to be inducted were selected from a group of nine nominees. To be eligible for induction, this year's class had to release their first single no later than 1981. R.E.M. released "Radio Free Europe" b/w "Sitting Still" on Hib-Tone Records in July 1981.
Congratulations go out to Peter, Bill, Mike, Michael, and Bertis from everyone here at remhq.com!
