Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees Announced

The twelve nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced today -- six are new, and six return hoping for better luck this year. Newbies the Kiss, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LL Cool J, The Hollies (yeah!), Jimmy Cliff, Kiss and Genesis join returnees ABBA, The Chantels, Darlene Love, The Stooges, Donna Summer and the incredibly deserving Laura Nyro. Inductees will be chosen in January and honored at the big annual party on the Ides of March.
