    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just announced its latest class of nominees. Inductees will be announced in December and honored at a ceremony next March.

    The nominees - ranging from shock rockers to rappers to hair metallers to crooners- are below. While many take issue with rappers being considered for an honor that celebrates rock music, it is a diverse list of talented performers.

    Alice Cooper
    Beastie Boys
    Bon Jovi
    Chic
    Neil Diamond
    Donovan
    Dr. John
    J. Geils Band
    LL Cool J
    Darlene Love
    Laura Nyro
    Donna Summer
    Joe Tex
    Tom Waits
    Chuck Willis

    Who should be inducted from this class? The Beasties? LL? Mr. Waits? Alice? Neil, the Jewish Elvis? As a consummate Neil Diamond fan, I hope Neil makes it. I have seen him five times in concert and adore him.
