Hall Of Fame Boss Blames Voters For Donna Summer Snub Error
A day after Elton John took museum officials to task for snubbing Summer last month (Apr12) when she was edged out the Class of 2012 after initially making the shortlist, nominating committee chairman Jon Landau has confessed the singer should already be a member of the fabled music mecca.
In a statement released on Friday (18May12), Landau blamed Hall of Fame voters for the snub.
He writes, "There is absolutely no doubt that the extraordinary Donna Summer belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Regrettably, despite being nominated on a number of occasions, our voting group has failed to recognise her - an error I can only hope is finally and permanently rectified next year."
Summer, who died on Thursday (17May12), was nominated for this year's class, but was passed over. Inductees included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Laura Nyro, Donovan, The Faces, Guns N' Roses and the Beastie Boys.
