Peter Frampton, Joni Mitchell, the Police, Bo Diddley, Elton John, the Allman Brothers Band, Devo, Neil Diamond, and the Eurythmics, are among the artists to have recordings inducted this year into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Billboard reported, “Recordings are voted on each year by a special member committee, with final approval by the academy's national board of trustees. Counting these 26 titles, the Hall, now in its 47th year, encompasses 1,114 recordings. Recordings become eligible 25 years after their release.”
Peter Frampton told us that the multi-platinum success of Frampton Comes Alive! only five years into his solo career, put a great strain on him artistically, and at a time when he desperately needed guidance on how to handle his career — it was nowhere to be found: “As (writer) Cameron Crowe put it, 'It was like Peter was strapped to the nose-cone of a rocket, he went through the ceiling of the sky, got out, stood there and realized there was nobody else there at all. He was totally alone.' And that pretty much sums up the way I felt.”
