Better late than never…
After being looked over for less musically celestial beings (insert names here ____), Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks can finally say that they are members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Along with these two icons, five other acts are being inducted, including Radiohead, Roxy Music, The Zombies, Def Leppard, and The Cure. The announcement was made this morning, with the Hall adding that they are “recognized for having contributed over 25 years of musical experience.”
Nicks is already a member through her other side-gig, Fleetwood Mac, but now the White Witch of Rock should start re-arranging her other accolades for this recognition. Others in contention this year were LL Cool J, Kraftwerk, Devo, John Prine, MC5, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, and Todd Rundgren. The final 7 were voted on by more than 1,000 artists in the recording industry.
The ceremony will be held on March 29, 2019 from the stage at New York City’s Barclays Center.
