Abba, Genesis inducted into rock’s Hall of Fame

Pop band Abba was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony that honoured genres from the Swedish group’s catchy tunes to the theatrical British rock band Genesis and reggae master Jimmy Cliff.

Mamma Mia, Abba is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Some say that its way overdue while others say Abba was never about Rock and Roll so they should not make the Hall of Fame.

Abba’s singer-songwriter Benny Andersson and vocalist Anni-Frid Prinzessin Reuss appeared at the black-tie event at New York’s famed Waldorf Astoria hotel, where Abba, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, the Hollies and the Stooges were formally inducted into the hall of fame.

Genesis is a great band with probably the most talented band members. The band members also had very successful individual / solo careers. Phil Collins , Peter Gabriel , Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks has been entertaining audiences since 1967 when Genesis was formed.

Genesis are among the top 30 highest-selling recording artists of all time with approximately 150 million albums sold worldwide, including 21.5 million albums sold in the United States.
