(Rock News Desk) Seventies rock icon Alex Harvey is set to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the establishment adds a photobook about his life to its collection.

The move comes just days before fans gather in the singer's native Glasgow, Scotland, to mark the 30th anniversary of his death.

Harvey, leader of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band and widely regarded as one of the best rock frontman of all time, passed away on February 4, 1982, a day short of his 47th birthday.
