Fame... The Album!

4 Nov 2004
U2 join The Beatles, Elvis, Madonna and Bob Marley in being inducted into the new 'UK Music Hall of Fame' next week - and with a track on the official album.

Spanning five decades of music history the 'UK Music Hall of Fame' album takes 39 tracks from some of the biggest stars of music including Bob Marley & the Wailers, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, R.E.M. McCartney & Wings, Michael Jackson, The Clash, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder and Simon & Garfunkel.

The album has been developed alongside the Channel 4 series which is presently running in the UK on Sunday evenings - each programme appraises a shortlist of ten artists from one of five decades, the Fifties, the Sixties, the Seventies, the Eighties and the Nineties.

At the end of each 2-hour show the public vote on who they think should be inducted into the inaugural UK Music Hall of Fame. With commentary from many of the greats of music past and present the series will culminate in a live finale on Sunday 14 November where one representative from each of the five decades will be the first to be inducted into the Hall alongside the five Founding Members.
