NEW YORK (AP) — The first time was the charm for Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Hall and Oates. All three first-time nominees have made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame their first time around. The list of inductees is now out — and joining them on the list are Nirvana, Kiss and Cat Stevens. The induction of Nirvana comes 20 years after frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide at age 27. Among the acts not getting in — the seminal rap group N.W.A. The induction ceremony is set for April — and will air on HBO.
