Not in Hall of Fame





Pat Benatar finally was inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame with husband/musical partner Neil Giraldo, after many years of being snubbed. Judas Priest enters the hall, not as a regular performer but with a Musical Excellence Award. Dolly Parton enters after initially trying to get her name off the ballot. Other inductees were Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Carly Simon, Lionel Richie, Eminem and more.
