Def Leppard Among Rock Hall Of Fame Inductees
Def Leppard, the Zombies and Radiohead are among the 2019 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Also announced Thursday morning are Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, the Cure, and Roxy Music.
The acts were chosen from a list revealed in October that also included LL Cool J, Devo and Rage Against The Machine.
Def Leppard, Nicks and Roxy Music were first-time nominees. (Nicks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 20 years ago as part of Fleetwood Mac.) She becomes the first female artist to be inducted twice.
"I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile," Nicks said, in a statement. "It’s a glorious feeling.”
Jackson released a statement thanking the Rock Hall. "I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers."
Inductees must have released their first commercial record at least 25 years ago to be eligible for a nomination.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place March 29 in Brooklyn.
