Yes, Journey, Electric Light Orchestra, Pearl Jam, and the Cars lead the 2017 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Among the others vying for induction are the J. Geils Band, the MC5, Chaka Khan, Chic, Janet Jackson, Jane's Addiction, Steppenwolf, the Zombies, Joan Baez, Kratfwerk, Depeche Mode, Joe Tex, Bad Brains, and Tupac Shakur. Inductees will be announced in December with the induction ceremony set for next April at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. An edited version of the event will later be broadcast on HBO.

Ultimate Classic Rock posted yesterday: "Fans will again be able to help determine who goes in by voting at the Rock Hall’s website; those polls open today and then close at 11:59 pm ET on December 5th. Their votes are combined into a single ballot that joins hundreds of others submitted by artists, historians and music industry insiders -- including every living Rock Hall inductee. Chicago claimed the fan vote last time around. Voting is limited to one ballot per day."

Perhaps in response to Paul Stanley's recent issues with the Hall about which members of Kiss were inducted, for the first time, the Rock Hall has announced the individual members of each band being nominated, with Rolling Stone posting the particulars:


  • Yes will include Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Alan White, Tony Kaye, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe, Trevor Rabin, and Chris Squire.
  • Along with Jeff Lynne -- Electric Light Orchestra will only include co-founders Roy Wood and Bev Bevan along with longtime keyboardist Richard Tandy.

  • Journey will feature both its legendary former members Steve Perry and Gregg Rolie.

  • In addition to the founding and current members of Pearl Jam, only current drummer Matt Cameron and founding member Dave Krusen will be inducted if voted in.

  • Depeche Mode will also include original keyboardist Vince Clarke.

  • Jeff Lynne has always been the heart and soul of ELO, serving as the band's songwriter, producer, guitarist and lead singer. We asked him about what it took to create the soundtrack to several generations ' lives: "Some of them took longer. I mean, it always happens that way. Some songs, you can do in 10 minutes and it’s like, ‘Wow -- got it!' -- and the idea’s all there, y’know, all the ideas are there, all you’ve gotta do is arrange it. But sometimes you can get a couple of bits and it might be six months before you finish it. You put it away and go on to something else and then bring it out again. Every song’s different, really. It takes you where it wants to go -- for me anyway."
