The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is about to get decidedly more rocking: Alice Cooper is among the latest to join its ranks. Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Dr. John, and Darlene Love will also be inducted, reports the New York Times, citing an announcement expected today. Other than Love, a back-up and occasional lead singer from the 1960s, all are first-time nominees. Some of those nominated this year who didn’t make it in: Donna Summer, LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys, and Bon Jovi. Click for more—and to see the biggest Hall of Fame snubs.
