Depeche Mode, ELO, Journey among other first-timers

April AlvarezOct 21, 2016

Of the 19 nominees announced by the Rock Hall on Tuesday, nine were getting their first nods, including Jane's Addiction, Journey and Depeche Mode, The New York Times reported.

While the band has included a number of musicians over the years, the rock hall's bio of the group highlights Canadians Goldy McJohn, Jerry Edmonton and Nick St. Nicholas among the core members. Repeat nominees on the 2017 ballot include soul vocal dynamo Joe Tex, who died in 1982, and disco pioneers Chic, which performed this summer at Chula Vista's Sleep Train Amphitheatre. It also doesn't help the Hall's stuffy reputation.

Google Pixel XL Vs iPhone 7 Plus Camera Comparison
As you can see, the same price gives you more storage on the V20 alongside a dual-lens camera , something the Pixel XL lacks. If you choose to jump on the Live Case, be prepared to wait as they are not expected to begin shipping until early November.

The inductees are chosen by fans and by an global body of some 800 artists, historians and members of the music industry who are asked to consider musical influence, innovation, and length and depth of career.

Janet Jackson, who released her 11th studio album Unbreakable previous year, is joined by '60s folkster Joan Baez and R&B singer Chaka Khan as the sole women on the list. For example, Pearl Jam has had five drummers in its quarter-century stint, but only the current and founding drummers will be recognized if the band is inducted. In addition to the votes from the traditional voting committee, fans can place votes with crowdsourced fan ballots via Rolling Stone. The 2017 Nominees had to release their first recording no later than 1991, according to a news release from the nonprofit organization.

Samsung Offering Note 7 Exchanges, Refunds at Some US Airports
In September Samsung issued a recall of the original exploding devices after dozens of them caught fire or emitted smoke. An airline flight ban on Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 is spreading fast after reports some phones have caught fire.

Known for hits like "Any Way You Want It", "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Open Arms", Journey's only remaining original, constant member is guitarist Neal Schon, a native of Tinker Air Force Base and 2013 inductee of the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. The top five artists from the public vote will be counted along with the other ballots.

The list's female representation, on the other hand, remains surprisingly low, especially for an institution who seemed to be making amends after finally inducting rocker Joan Jett into the Hall at last year's ceremony.

Airlines add fire containment bags for overheated mobile devices
