Motörhead is one of the bands nominated this year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So Mikkey Dee of Motörhead had something to say to us, the public, about how to cast our votes. All us regular people are able to vote and those votes will be factored in as “fan votes”.
Anyway, Mikkey urges fans of rock to concentrate their votes on hard rock acts which he says usually get overlooked. He of course would like Motörhead to get in there, but he’d also like to see votes for MC5, Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest, and Soundgarden. He’d like to see hard rock better represented in the Hall of Fame. “We’ve got to stick together. Vote for us, all of us”, he said.
Here’s the message from Mikkey himself:
So whether you agree or not, you can go vote at rockhall.com. You have through January 10th. It’s not quite as important as voting for president, but it’s up there.
