Welcome to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame…
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the Class of 2012 inductees:
Guns N’ Roses
The Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Small Faces/The Faces
Don’t know about you, but we are absolutely thrilled at the possibility of Slash, Ron Wood, Flea and Ad-Rock crashing their way through the classic “Atlantis.” Gonna be a showstopper…
And just in case you’ve forgotten, these are the folks who were on the ballot, but didn’t manage to garner enough votes: Donna Summer, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Heart, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Eric B. & Rakim, War, the Cure and the Spinners. Better luck next time, folks…
The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies will be held in Cleveland on Saturday, April 14.
F*** the Hall.
Interesting thing that happened with Freddie King. He was on the ballot, but got selected as an ‘early influence’.
For once, there’s nobody on the ballot that I can say got Jobbed. War was an amazing group, and the Cure made some terrific sounds in their day, but I wouldn’t put them ahead of anybody who got in this year. I agree with Roger, though. Freddie King deserved to get in, but not through a loophole.
