According to reports from Loudwire, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame have snubbed Motorhead members.
Despite Motorhead earning recognition worldwide, Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee, have been snubbed from the nomination.
Along with Motorhead, the list of 2020 nominees include Judas Priest, the MC5, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden and Thin Lizzy.
Unfortunately, Rock Hall only included late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, Eddie Clarke and Phil Taylor for the nomination.
This came as a big surprise for fans as Campbell is a long time Motorhead’s guitarist until the death of Lemmy Kilmister in 2015.
It gave Campbell a 31-year career with the band and cementing him as Motorhead’s second-most longstanding member after Lemmy.
Mikkey Dee also won the Grammy for “Whiplash,” and as the drummer for Motorhead since 1992, Dee is the third-most longstanding member of Motorhead’s history, having served 23 years behind the kit.
Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister was recording new tracks for his solo album in the summer of 2015 before he died. Unfortunately, it was not possible to complete this album. Few months ago, Lemmy Kilmister’s final studio recording, “We Are the Ones” was released. The track was recorded in collaboration with guitarist Chris Declercq and features studio drumming from Josh Freese (The Vandals/ex-A Perfect Circle, etc.) and co-producer Martin Guigui. Lemmy Kilmister was loved by everyone, from fans to press. Drummer Mikkey has joined Scorpions and guitarist Phil has been playing in a band with his sons.
