Judas Priest Battle Eurythmics For Hall of Fame Spot

There’s a horse race for the fifth position on the fan’s ballot for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame between The Eurythmics and Judas Priest.

 

Fans get one vote for the inductees that will be added in with all of the regular voting members of the Hall of Fame. The top five artists on the fan ballot (rockhall.com/fan-vote/2018-fan-vote), receive single votes in the selection process.

There is little doubt that the fan favorite is Bon Jovi who has garnered just short of 354,000 votes so far. The Moody Blues are second followed by Dire Straits and The Cars.

It’s the final spot that seems to be in question. The Eurythmics have seen their 6,200 vote lead over Judas Priest the day after the nominees were announced cut to just 2,700 on the latest tally.

Mick Fleetwood Assures Fans Next Fleetwood Mac Tour Won’t Be Their Last

Fleetwood Mac leader Mick Fleetwood has assured fans the band’s 2018 tour won’t be a finale.

 

Bandmate Christine McVie has hinted that the upcoming 18-month global trek will be a farewell, but the drummer insists the band has more music to play and perhaps record.

“In my mind, it’s not (the final tour), and everyone in the band has decided that it’s not,” he tells Rolling Stone, “but we thought we were finished 30 years ago…

“I don’t know if morbid is the correct word here, but when everyone is in their 70s and you think about five years from now… Phil Collins is calling his tour Not Dead Yet. Well, we’re not dead yet, but God forbid, we might be, so you could be like, ‘I better go and see them!’

“But you will not see a poster saying this is our farewell tour that I could dream of.”

And Fleetwood, 70, reveals he and Stevie Nicks recently met up in Italy and checked out some old forgotten songs they’re thinking of revamping for the 2018 tour.
