LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Canadian rockers Rush, famed hip-hop group Public Enemy and prolific songwriter Randy Newman were among the latest class of inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced today in Los Angeles.

They will be joined by Heart and the late Albert King and Donna Summer. Lou Adler and Quincy Jones were named recipients of Ahmet Ertegun Awards for non-performers.

"We are thrilled to announce this year's class of inductees, which again represents the broad, compelling and significant definition of rock and roll," according to Joel Peresman, president/CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation.

The 28th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held April 18 at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles. It will mark the first time the induction ceremony will be held on the West Coast. The event will be broadcast one month later on HBO.

This was also the first year fans were given the chance to vote on inductees to the hall, which is located in Cleveland.
