Flea To Reveal 2013 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees On Tuesday

Written by Kiel Egging on December 9, 2012

Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea will reveal which musical acts are joining him and his band in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

After the Chilis were inducted into the hall last year, organisers have picked Flea to help with the announcement of the new crop of inductees – and also introduce them to one of their new pals in the prestigious group.

Loudwire reports that Rush, Heart, Deep Purple, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Procol Harum are among the rock greats up for potential induction this year.

Disco stars Donna Summer and Chic; rap icons Public Enemy and N.W.A.; blues kings Albert King and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band; singer-songwriter-composer Randy Newman; electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk; and New Orleans R&B staples The Meters could also be honoured.

The announcement ceremony will take place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on Tuesday at 11am, with the induction booked for the same venue on April 18.

Flea will be on our shores with the Red Hot Chili Peppers next month as they headline the Big Day Out.
