Cynthia Weil

Cynthia Weil

In Memoriam

From poignant ballads to raging rockers, 2010 Inductee Cynthia Weil could write anything. No matter what you were feeling, she and her songwriting partner Barry Mann crafted a song for it — from the pathos of “Walking in the Rain” to the anguish of “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.” Beyond rock, they wrote for film, Broadway, radio, and TV. Weil personally collaborated with artists including Lionel Richie, John Williams, and Tommy Lee James. One of the defining figures to emerge from the legendary Brill Building, Cynthia Weil wrote songs that defined a generation.

Dickie Harrell

In Memoriam

Drummer Dickie Harrell of Inductees Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps introduced countless audiences to the untamed exuberance of rockabilly. One of the first self-contained rock and roll bands, the Blue Caps relentlessly toured America, Europe, Australia, and Japan in rock's early days. Harrell's drumming kept things simple, but that's where the magic was: He wasn’t afraid to stop playing for dramatic effect, and then usher the band back in with a few taps. He added brushes when the sound wasn't quite full enough and then echoed the vocals for emphasis. Harrell’s approach influenced the British Invasion and the countless garage bands that started in the shadow of the Blue Caps.
Tina Turner In Memoriam

Tina Turner

In Memoriam

Two-time Inductee Tina Turner worked hard to reimagine the role of a Black woman in rock & roll — one that was firmly placed front and center. During her time in the duo Ike and Tina Turner (inducted in 1991), her electric onstage presence forever raised the bar for live performance. Their hits “River Deep–Mountain High” and “Proud Mary” endure to this day. But this Queen of Rock & Roll went on to make music history again with her solo career (for which she was inducted again in 2021) and with her bravery in sharing her life story as a book, film, and Broadway musical. There was nothing her deep, robust voice couldn’t do, as displayed on her solo hits like “What’s Love Got to Do with It” and “Private Dancer.”
