I can see The Doobie Brothers but not any of the other five. Rock & Roll, really ?

I like some of their music, if they were only a 1 hit wonder it would have been black water, LOVED that song my older brother teaching me how to drive late spring early summer, Wolfman Jack playing on AM radio,or Rufus Coyote on the local station, starting to notice girls, oh to be young again….

But they weren’t. China Grove rocks, Rockin’ down the Highway, Eyes of Silver, Long Train Runnin’, Road Angel… they Rock.

Being ancient, I can remember when they were the local band playing Plateau 7 atop the Pruneyard Tower in Campbell. The modest office of their producer a couple of blocks away still had all their Gold Records on his wall when I went in there some years back on personal music business.

It’s not really the Rock and roll Hall of Fame. They have country.rap,and pop stars like Janet Jackson. You would be surprised how many real rock and rollers who are not in.

I’ve been there, don’t waste your money. And they charge ALOT of money to look at guitars, and Mick Jagger’s old polyester jumpsuits. (Which, look like they would fit a 10 year old girl.)
It’s all PC Culture. They inducted Run DMC, a one hit wonder, almost immediately, but it took RUSH decades and like 18 freaking platinum albums to get in. It’s a joke.

Another year that Kansas is snubbed… and look how long it took Rush to be inducted. I’m glad it happened while Neil Peart was alive. RIP

So true. The R&R HoF are a bunch of PC SJW clowns.

As reputable as the Nobel peace prize.

If you want a good laugh look at Alex Lifeson’s “acceptance speech” at Rush’s induction ceremony.

“Blah, blah.. blah blah blah… blah haha….”

The proverbial middle finger in the eye of the “HoF” . So very well deserved. Akin to Ricky Gervais’s opening monologue at the 2020 Golden Globes, only with a “limited vocabulary.” Thanks for the award, and Skee-ruu You and your “Hall of Fame.”

Now, where’s the bar?

NONE Of These Clowns Were “Rock And Roll”; They’ve Run Out Of ‘Victims’.

Ironically, Pat Benatar Has Evidenced Rock ‘Power’, Repeatedly. Apparently,
The Difference Between ‘Pop’, And All Of This Crap, Is Also Elusive To Them.
NONE Of It Is ‘Rock ‘N Roll’.

Had a GREAT time seeing Pat Benatar in concert with the wife years after her heyday at a casino venue, she can STILL belt out her songs, that is if her hubby doesnt try hamming it up too much during the show, good times had by all!

Depeche Mode The Notorious B.I.G. These jagoffs do not play R&R. Crap choices.

The RnR HoF is bullschit. Founded by record execs, publishers, attorneys, and PUBLICLY FUNDED by the saps, er, taxpayers, in Northeastern Ohio to the tune of $65M, it has always has been, and always will be nothing more than sheer public relations propaganda for their business interests, been driven by politics and motivated by money. The recognition of greatness is a facade – an arcane illusion, masking the true purpose of the “museum;”

What they think matters. What the fans think doesn’t. Elitist bullschit at it’s height. So go pay your entrance fee, put your nose up against the glass to sniff Elvis’s sequined Vegas suit or see Slowhand’s guitar… be my guest.

….Oh, and btw, I’m from Cleveland, so I’m allowed to diss the schitshow.

Saps.

Yep, so true. Michael Stanley should be in there too! His mere existence helped bring it there in the first place. A local act with a lot of good music and ten times better than half of the other inductees. The elites RUIN everything. Give them sex favors and get inducted easily.

I still have two Michael Stanley Band albums on vinyl.

At least they were legit R n R! The people who run that operation should be embarrassed. No credibility. Eventually makes the whole thing a joke.

How is it that the great Peter Frampton has never been nominated? Legendary singer and guitarist! Half of these nominees, I’m like who is that!? These people who run that operation must be influenced by other motives than who actually BELONGS in their “hall of fame.” Plenty of other much more worthy people have been snubbed. Completely stupid.

As you get older you realize how trutly awful 90% of the music made from the 70’s – to today the 20’s truly is. Most amusing are the full one page obits for these clowns i.e. a day or so ago about some drummer from Rush. They’ve got as much ‘fame’ as they’re ever going to get – nothing awaits them in eternity but judgement

I’m glad to see CCR, ELO, Linda Ronstadt and Dire Straits made it in not long ago. To me, 1967 – 1972 was the prime stretch for rock music overall. True talent used to work it’s way to the top in those days.
