Heart (Finally!) Nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Yes, it really is happening!

The nominees were announced last Tuesday and low and behold our beloved sisters from Seattle have finally (make that finally, finally, FINALLY!!) been included :D They along with 14 other hopefuls including Guns n Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and fellow female rock icon Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are all in the running for the 2012 Induction.

Heart have been eligible for RNRHOF Induction for the last 10 years and have been aggregiously overlooked every year running. Now they have gone from not even making the Rock Hall's "Previously Considered" list straight to being nominated. Most of the nominees come from the "shortlist". In other words, the Hall is proving they actually do have a heart. Or at least, they could.

Let your voice be heard. Vote for HEART in the online fan poll here. This does not affect the outcome of the induction; that task is in the (hopefully) able hands of 1000 "rock experts", 500 or more of which must vote for Heart for them to make it in. But we should vote our hearts out nonetheless. This is Heart's moment and they deserve every minute of it.


Now just for fun; late last year I started work on a Heart for the RNRHOF project; posters and music selections/album covers mostly, but before I could release any of them or the full website I had in the works, my computer burned up and is still out of commission. Luckily for me I had sent a few of my finished works to my best friend who, in true heroic amazingness, kept them and was able to send them to my phone so that I may post them in celebration of this incredible and momentous occasion! Here we have a promo poster of sorts, and a matching set of front and back album covers with a poster to match too. Posters measure 11x17 inches and the coverart is standard cd case size 475x475 pixels. I have another large set that needs a bit of tweaking that I will hopefully be able to post soon. As always, I hope you all like them :)
