Jimmy Cliff was announced on Wednesday as one of twelve 2010 nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The other nominees are ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, KISS, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chantels, The Hollies, and The Stooges.

To be eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Thus, this year’s nominees had to release their first single no later than 1984. Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will make their selections for artistes to be inducted.

The five artistes with the most votes will be announced in January 2010, and their induction ceremony will happen on March 15, 2010 at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, New York City. It will be the 25th annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony

    Sid Bernstein & the hall...A disgraceful snub!

    Sid is the most honorable person I ever knew in the music business.The Rascals; Tony Bennett, (at Carnegie Hall;) The Beatles; Stones; The Kinks; Herman's Hermits...and the Moodies, are literally, barely only the "tip of his iceberg." I believe, the bottom-line here is, many of the movers & shakers at the r&r hall, (most notably, hall "founding member," ...Frank Barsalona, who worked under Sid at GAC...) are taking credit for Sid's vision. Each year, Sid is embraced in Liverpool. There, he speaks to the masses. There, at least, they give him his due. You'll find him at FaceBook. There, his friends are trying to raise funds to release a documentary on his life. For Sid...it was never about the money, it was always about the music. At Sid's 'FaceBook' site, you'll find a YouTube link to a preview of Sid's documentary. Sid is a loving father and husband...and a gentleman in every sense of the word. That's the Sid Bernstein I've known and been honored to call "friend," since 1963!

    Perhaps, the hall will deem him worthy, posthumously, one day. He's in his 90's now. So, 2020...seems like a safe bet!

    Please remember...there'd be a whole lot less music, without "non-performers!" Tell the hall to honor him! Finally, Rightfully!!!
