Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominates Legendary Artist and Activist Joan BaezRock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominates Legendary Artist and Activist Joan Baez
by BWW News Desk - Oct 18, 2016

Legendary artist and activist, Joan Baez, has been nominated as part of the class of 2017 for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Baez's career has spanned over 50 years during which she unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963, marched on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King, inspired Vaclav Havel to fight for a Czech Republic, and continues to this day to stand passionately on behalf of causes she embraces. She is the recipient of many honors including the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award and Amnesty International's Ambassador of Conscience award. Her early albums introduced songs, which found their way into the rock vernacular including “House Of the Rising Sun” (the Animals), “John Riley” (the Byrds), and “Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You” (Led Zeppelin).   (more...)
