Peter Gabriel, E Street Band, Nirvana to join Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame has announced its inductees for 2014.

Following the committee vote, Peter Gabriel, Hall And Oates, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Nirvana and Kiss will be inducted, while The E Street Band will be given the Award For Musical Excellence. Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, meaning Nirvana, who released debut album 'Bleach' in 1989, have been nominated at the first possible opportunity.

The early managers of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones will also be honoured, with the late Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham sharing the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers.

The induction ceremony is due to take place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 10th, 2014, and tickets go on sale to the general public in January.
