 Radiohead, Roxy Music and Janet Jackson will join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, alongside Def Leppard, The Zombies, Stevie Nicks and The Cure.

The seven inductees are the biggest intake since 2004; and bring the total number of acts in the hall to 330.

Nicks was already a member as part of Fleetwood Mac; and becomes the first woman to enter the Hall of Fame twice.

“To be recognised for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile,” she said. “It’s a glorious feeling.”

“To be recognised for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile,” she said. “It’s a glorious feeling.”

“We did it u guys Thank U for all your love and support,” she tweeted after her place was secured. In a separate statement, the star added: “Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am truly honoured and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”

But Jackson didn’t have to wait as long as British psych-rock band The Zombies - who have been eligible since 1989 and appeared on three previous ballots.

“You do start to doubt that it could happen,” singer Colin Blumstone told Rolling Stone. “I’ve tried to be fairly philosophical about it and tell myself that if we don’t get inducted, it’s just a bit of fun.

Meanwhile, Def Leppard could owe their place in the hall to an online vote. The British rockers, whose hits include Animal, Rocket and Pour Some Sugar On Me, received 547,647 votes, followed by Stevie Nicks (427,844) and Todd Rundgren (365,370). That gave them one extra vote on top of the ballots cast by the Hall of Fame jury, which includes about 1,000 musicians, critics and historians.         (BBC)
