Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2004

Charismatic rocker Prince and the late George Harrison are among seven 2004 inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it was announced Thursday. Gritty-voiced Bob Seger, British fusion group Traffic, Texas boogy band ZZ Top, singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and rhythm & blues vocal group The Dells are the others to be inducted in the "performer" category at the 19th annual ceremony in New York on March 15.
Harrison, who died of cancer in November 2001 at age 58, was previously inducted in 1988 as a member of the Beatles.
Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record.
The multitalented Prince -- a singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboard player and dynamic dancer -- blossomed as a rock star with his 1982 double album "1999."
Two years later, at age 26, he rose to the highest ranks with the movie and album "Purple Rain," which included the hit single "When Doves Cry." "Purple Rain" reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard and box office charts.
Harrison showed his solo skills with the hit triple-album "All Things Must Pass" in 1970 and the next year issued the "Concert for Bangla Desh." In his later years, Harrison joined Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty to turn out hit albums as the Traveling Wilburys.
Voting for the Rock and Roll honors was done by an international panel of 700 rock experts who received ballots with a list of nominees supplied by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation's nominating committee.
A Lifetime Achievement award in the nonperformer category will be announced later.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was formed in 1983 and the first induction ceremony was held in 1986. All inductees are represented at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum, in Cleveland. NEW YORK (Reuters)
