U2 And Grandmaster Flash Lead Rock Hall Nominees

U2, GRANDMASTER FLASH + THE FURIOUS FIVE, RANDY NEWMAN and THE O'JAYS are among the nominees to be inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME next year (05).

Also vying for the honour are THE PRETENDERS, BUDDY GUY, WANDA JACKSON, the J GEILS BAND, CONWAY TWITTY and PERCY SLEDGE.

THE SEX PISTOLS, THE STOOGES, LYNYRD SKYNYRD and the late GRAM PARSONS were previously nominated but remain on this year's ballot.

Artists become eligible 25 years after the release of their first recording. A committee nominates eligible artists, who are then voted for by an international body of about 700 music experts. Results will be announced in December (04), with the induction to take place in New York in the spring (05).

The 2004 induction class featured PRINCE, BOB SEGER, ZZ TOP, JACKSON BROWNE and the late BEATLE GEORGE HARRISON, among others.
