But the new inductees to the Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame have been announced, i reserve my comments about rock n' roll , being something that breaks with dumb traditions, eliminates barriers between audience and performer and in general, takes no bullshit has to have a museum and ceremonies to make it overblown like some kind of crap ass sport.
The artists who will enter the biggest joke in music history since MTV will be a selected group of very different from one another groups and it only makes me ask myself, and i redirect the question to you, dear reader, can you imagine a jam between all of them?
They haven't gotten the Ronettes in until now?! This is an even bigger and stupidier joke!!!! If this garbage of Hall of Fame thing meant anything in reality, then Ronnie Spector would have helped cut the ribbon the day they opened the place.
Totally deserved (actually, i don't have much complains whether people were worthy of recognition or not this year, in general) Lenny Kay should have been induced years ago seperately, just for compiling Nuggets.
Do i think they are that good? No, but there was a time where they could write a mean tune and later on, used this skill in bursts (like with that song "Lotus"), some good tunes nonetheless, they are totally overrated. I picked one of their few songs i like.
Fuck yeah!!!! I only ask myself how they will attend the ceremony. 10 bucks say Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony will be the only ones present; can you imagine a conversation between David Lee Roth and Patti Smith? Ten more bucks say he calls her "bearded lady" within 5 minutes.
Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five
Of course yes, he only needs to get up and do a super turntable solo with his feet and everything.
Now here are the songs:
Van Halen - Unchained.mp3 from Fair Warning, 1981
R.E.M. - Driver 8.mp3 from Fables Of Reconstruction, 1985
The Ronettes - Be My Baby.mp3, 1963
Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five - The Message.mp3 from The Message, 1982
Patti Smith Group - Pale Blue Eyes/Louie Louie.mp3 some CBGBs comp, 1976(?)
