From ABC News:
Randy Newman and Public Enemy are among an eclectic mix of 2013 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the museum announced today at a ceremony in Los Angeles. Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, announced the six inductees chosen from 15 nominees this year.
The class of 2013 is a diverse bunch despite its size. They are blues guitarist Albert King, disco royalty Donna Summer, rockers Heart and early hip-hop artists Public Enemy, singer-songwriter Newman, and progressive rock band Rush.
Dubbed the “Queen of Disco,” Donna Summer became a superstar in the 1970s with disco megahits “Love to Love You Baby” and “Last Dance.” Summer continued to release music until 2010. She died in May 2012, just months shy of her being nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
