According to the Associated Press, AEROSMITH‘s Steven Tyler, FOREIGNER‘s Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, THE KINKS‘ Ray Davies, FLEETWOOD MAC‘s Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA‘s Jeff Lynne and ELVIS COSTELLO are among the nominees for the 2013 Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
Songwriters Hall gave The Associated Press a list of nominees in advance of the official announcement, set for October 16. The gala takes place June 13 at the New York Marriott Marquis.
“It means a lot that those songs have been recognized, and maybe, hopefully a little part of history,” Jones said of the band’s hits, which include ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ and ‘Waiting For A Girl Like You’.
Eligible voters can select two nominees from the list of songwriter-performers and three non-performing songwriters. Voting ends December 17.
