Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 Nominees Announced

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 Nominees Announced

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The nominees for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2018 were announced Thursday. This year's group includes 19 nominees from all different musical genres. Of the 19, 9 are appearing on the ballot for the first time and 2 of those groups are newly eligible this year.

The Hall of Fame will once again honor specific members of each band as opposed to the full lineup, a policy that was first introduced last year. As such, Depeche Mode's current lineup of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher is listed along with former members Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder. Representing Judas Priest are frontman Rob Halford, bassist Ian Hill, guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing, and drummers Scott Travis, Les Binks and Dave Holland. Dire Straits' eligible lineup is made up of frontman Mark Knopfler, bassist John Illsley, drummer Pick Withers, guitarist David Knopfler, and keyboardists Alan Clark and Guy Fletcher.

In order for an artist to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, their first recording must have been released at least 25 years ago or earlier. Radiohead, Rage, Bush, Simone, Judas Priest, Eurythmics, and Dire Straits are all appearing on the ballot for the ballot for the first time, with Radiohead and Rage doing so in their first year of eligibility.
Last year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class included Pearl Jam, Tupac, Journey, Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, and Yes.
