In The Region:
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has selected its class of 2014, and it includes the pioneers of Grunge Rock, four overdue singer-songwriters, and the Svengalis of the biggest bands of the '60s.

Artists are eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after the release of their first record.  And there was little doubt the Nirvana would be inducted in its first year of eligibility.  The Seattle trio of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Warren-native Dave Grohl ignited the alternative rock movement in 1991 with “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

But the other artists being inducted have been eligible for a decade or more.  Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel and KISS round out this year’s class, while Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band is finally inducted in the Musical Excellence category, previously known as sidemen. 

In the non-performer category, Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham guided the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, respectively, from dingy clubs to superstardom.

The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held April 10 in Brooklyn, part of a rotation that took the ceremony to Los Angeles last year, and Cleveland in 2012 and again in 2015.
