Vote for Warren Zevon to be inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is excited that Grammy award-winning musician, Warren Zevon, has been nominated to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Warren’s son, Jordan Zevon, serves as ADAO’s national spokesperson.
Warren Zevon passed away from mesothelioma, an asbestos-caused cancer, in 2003. Since that time his family has worked alongside ADAO in an effort to spare other asbestos-stricken families from the pain and suffering of losing a loved one like they did.
“[My dad] should be here today continuing to make music but mesothelioma and asbestos-caused cancer claimed his life in 2003,” said Jordan Zevon in a new video about his father’s nomination, “As a National Spokesperson for the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, it would mean the world to me if you could vote for my father daily at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fan voting page to honor his memory and legacy,” he concluded.
Through April 28, fans around the world can participate in the induction selection process through the Fan Vote at vote.rockhall.com or in person at the Museum in Cleveland. Fans can vote online daily, with each vote counting as another submission. The current status of the nominated inductees can be found at vote.rockhall.com/results/. The top five artists selected by the public will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2023 Inductees. Inductees will be announced in May with the 2023 Induction Ceremony taking place this fall.
ADAO is deeply grateful that the Zevon family continues to help shine a spotlight on the ongoing tragedy that is caused by asbestos, as the carcinogen continues to be imported and used in the United States. ADAO offers deep gratitude, adoration, and congratulations to the Zevon family for this well-deserved recognition and honor.
