There just may be some local flavour in this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Steppenwolf, the legendary group fronted by ex-Waterloo resident John Kay is one of the nominees. The original band also featured two Canadian natives: Keyboardist Goldy McJohn from Toronto and Oshawa's Jerry Edmonton on drums.
You can also help them out by voting! Fans can pick up to 5 nominees by going here. Deadline is December 6, 2016.
