Bon Jovi wins the RRHOF Fan Vote

Bon Jovi wins the RRHOF Fan Vote
07 Dec
Not in Hall of Fame
What do Rush, Kiss, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chicago and Journey have in common? Other than being members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, all of them won the fan vote, by which the regular public could make their voices heard to the Rock Hall, and since its inception all of the above winners were elected in that respective year.

If history is to be repeated than we should pencil in Bon Jovi as an inductee for the next Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class, as they were the runaway winners from the fan vote.

According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the fan vote ballot takes the top five vote getters in that order and it counts the same as any one of the 90 others that it receives from musicians/experts who comprise the voting body, though again the fan vote has been unblemished to date.

The voting tally is as follows:

Bon Jovi: 1,162,146

The Moody Blues: 947,795

Dire Straits: 613,749

The Cars: 552,733

Judas Priest: 538,508

The Zombies: 529,478

Eurythmics: 451,997

  1. Geils Band: 349,319
Depeche Mode: 302,144

Nina Simone: 184,628

Kate Bush: 179,337

Radiohead: 176,310

Rage Against the Machine: 167,903

The MC5: 127,004

LL Cool J: 118,317

Sister Rosetta Tharpe: 111,158

Link Wray: 98,436

Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan: 84,625

The Meters: 59,045

The announcement foe the next Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class will be announced on the Hall’s Facebook page on December 13.
