The Rock and Roll Hall of fame has officially announced the acts that will be inducted into the institution next year. The acts include Journey, Pearl Jam, ELO, Yes and Joan Baez. They will be inducted in a ceremony due to be held 7th April. It has also been announced that Chic’s Nile Rodgers will be presented with the award for musical excellence. Pearl Jam have been inducted on their first year of being eligible and many fans are pleased with Yes receiving recognition as the Hall of Fame have been criticized for many years for their bias against progressive rock acts. The biggest talking point however is whether or not Journey will reunite with their former frontman Steve Perry for the induction ceremony.
