2012 Rock hall entrants announced

LOS ANGELES -- Let's hear it for the band.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has decided to induct six bands whose high-profile leaders previously made it into the hall individually, in recognition of the critical role those musicians played in the history of pop music.

Buddy Holly's Crickets, Bill Haley's Comets, James Brown's Famous Flames, Gene Vincent's Blue Caps, Hank Ballard's Midnighters, and Smokey Robinson's Miracles will join their frontmen as full-fledged members of the Hall of Fame at this year's induction ceremony, slated for April 14 in Cleveland.

"These inductees are pioneers in the development of the music we call rock and roll," Joel Peresman, president and chief executive of the Hall of Fame Foundation.
