Janet Jackson, Nicks, five Brits lead rock hall inductees

NEW YORK (AP) — Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks and a quintet of British bands are being honored with induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Friday at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

The rock bands — Def Leppard, Radiohead, the Cure, Roxy Music and the Zombies — represent a variety of styles and eras.

Jackson will join her brother Michael and the rest of the Jackson 5 as rock hall members. Singer Janelle Monae is lined to induct Jackson, whose hits include “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” ”All For You” and “That’s the Way Love Goes.”

Nicks is already in the hall as a member of Fleetwood Mac, but she joins a more exclusive club of double inductees in being saluted for solo work like “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stand Back.”
