Dionne Warwick thinks Rock & Roll Hall of Fame should be renamed

Mr. Nimbus | 03/15/2022

Dionne Warwick has called for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to be renamed.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday, the music icon was asked how she felt about her nomination for the Class of 2022.

“I’m not a rock and roller. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as I grew to know it many, many years ago was specifically for rock and roll acts,” the Walk On By hitmaker explained. “I feel now, especially when I hear that Dolly Parton was nominated, they should rename the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and call it The Music Hall of Fame. It would bring so many other genres into it… why not?”

This year marks the second time Dionne has been nominated for the prestigious music museum. Other artists in the running include Eminem, Lionel Richie, Beck, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, DEVO, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Judas Priest, Fela Kuti, MC5, New York Dolls, Rage Against The Machine, Carly Simon, and A Tribe Called Quest. Inductees will be announced in May.

While country star Dolly was included in the original list of nominees, she revealed on Monday that she had withdrawn her name from the ballot as she didn’t feel as if she had earned the right to be considered for induction.
