Goldmine Rock Era Hall of Fame:
Goldmine magazine initiated its Rock Era Hall of Fame with its May 4, 2012 issue. Every two weeks they induct ten more acts. The most recent class (volume 97) was inducted on July 1, 2017. That appears to be the last group inducted.
Criteria includes a 25-year waiting period, chart success, influence, and common sense. Here are the inductees so far with the magazine’s volume number indicated in parentheses. You can click on the number to go to that volume’s induction class, which includes bios and/or lists of significant songs by the act. Click on the act itself to go to its DMDB Music Encyclopedia entry.
