“Entrants are carefully selected by a committee of music historians.
To be accepted, the artist must have had a significant influence on the history of rock. They are divided into four categories: Performers (performers on stage), Non-Performers (off-stage artists), Early Influences (pioneers) and, since 2000, Sidemen (“support” artist). An artist is eligible 25 years after his first recording.
A selection committee made up of music historians selects artists for this category. Subsequently, the choices are voted on by about 1,000 experts: academics, journalists, producers and anyone else with experience in the music industry. To be selected, you must collect at least 50% of the votes. Each year, between five and seven selected artists are selected.
Each year, new artists are accepted as members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, a ceremony held in New York City. On January 27, 1986, the first members were elected: Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard.
Controversies exist with respect to new artists who are accepted because most of the selected artists are American or British nationals, leaving out, for example, influential Canadian or German artists. Others feel that the number of people selected is too large, which reduces the importance of appointments.
The museum also has a “shop” where all the iconic replicas of the rock and roll world are available, some visitors spend hours there and just for the shop the visit is worth the trip.
