The 2011 class for the prestigious club was announced on Tuesday, with Darlene Love and iconic piano player Dr. John also gaining successful nominations.

And despite his stellar career, Diamond insists he was in no rush to enter the Hall, telling the Associated Press, "I thought about it occasionally, but I kind of figured they'd get around to me at some point."

Love adds, "Finally it's done. It still hasn't hit me yet. I still have that nervous stomach, and I'm still excited."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum induction ceremony is slated to take place on March 14th in New York.
