Midland rockers Black Sabbath, Miles Davis and the Sex Pistols are among five legends to be inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame next year.
The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame Foundation will hold its induction ceremony on March 13 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, the organisation has announced.
Also to be inducted into the class of 2006 are 1980s New Wave band Blondie and Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd. Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, who founded A&M records in 1962, will receive a lifetime achievement award in the non-performer category.
Inductees into the sidemen category will be announced at a later date.
Musicians, industry professionals and journalists vote on the nominations. Artists are eligible to be inducted into the Rock Hall after at least 25 years have passed since their first record was released.
