Cooper, whose anthems such as No More Mister Mice Guy and School's Out are still staples on hard rock radio, said he'd waited for the call for awhile.

"You know it crosses your mind, but then you think of all the guys who aren't in there, some of them before you," the 62-year-old rocker said. "You realize that it's a waiting game."

As for snubs, eligible performers who didn't get the call include Bon Jovi, LL Cool J, Donna Summer and Sonny & Cher.


Cher last month told Vanity Fair "it just seems kind of rude” she and Sonny have not been inducted yet.

"We started something that no one else was doing," the Burlesque star told Vanity Fair last month. "We were weird hippies before there was a name for it, when the Beatles were wearing sweet little haircuts and round-collared suits.
