The 2023 Rock Hall nominees that did not make the final cut are SoundgardenIron MaidenCyndi LauperWarren Zevon, and the White Stripes.

Although over the past 25 years, Sheryl Crow's name, face, and music is among the most recognizable in entertainment -- she doesn't let fame and public opinion get in the way of her approach to music: "I have a different kind of relationship to fame and to the world outside. It's much more from a rebellious teenager kind of energy. But musically, I'm sure it makes its way in, but it doesn't really influence the way I approach music."

Bernie Taupin said that Elton John becoming a singer/songwriter was never some desperate need for adulation -- but simply a way to promote their songs: "When we first got together, obviously, there was no intention, or plan for Elton to make records. I mean, it really came about, simply because we couldn't get anybody else to record our songs."
