Willie Nelson Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee 2023

Long overdue, Willie Nelson was elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, class of 2023. Just after his 90th birthday party celebration weekend, he got a late present, and was one of seven voted into the Hall. The induction ceremony will be held in November, in Brooklyn, New York, not the Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

Six others were selected by the Hall of Fame committee to be in the HOF: Chaka Khan, instrumentalist-producer Al Kooper and lyricist Bernie Taupin, all in the “musical excellence” category; pioneering rock guitarist Link Wray and hip-hop originator DJ Kool Herc in the “musical influence” division; and “Soul Train” TV host Don Cornelius as the recipient of the annual Ahmet Ertegun Award.
