Stevie Nicks will make history later this month when she becomes the first female artist to be a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, while nearly two dozen male artists -- including Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, Paul Simon, Michael Jackson and Neil Young -- have the same distinction.
- Chaka Khan and Annie Lennox have yet to be inducted, either solo or with the groups where they first found fame.
- The first woman inductee, Aretha Franklin, was honored in the Hall's second year. All of the initial group of honorees -- such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Buddy Holly -- were men.
- It took until the Hall's third class (1986) for an all-female group -- The Supremes -- to be inducted.
- Three years later (1989), Bessie Smith became the first woman inducted as an early influence.
- In 1990, Carole King became the first woman songwriter to be honored.
- And in 1997, Joni Mitchell became the first woman born outside the U.S. to be inducted.
This year's induction ceremony will take place at the Barclays Center in New York on March 29th.
