“…ages of rock…”

Well, it’s that time of year again…time for the ‘Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’ to induct new members to their illustrious halls, and so they have…

Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Darlene Love, Leon Russell, and Dr. John have all graduated to that magical echelon, and not a moment too soon…(Congrats to all of the well deserving artists…)

But…I am always a bit dumbfounded when it comes to the Hall Of Fame…I mean, it sounded like such a good idea when they began, but…

Should it really have taken this long for these people to be enlisted…

And…when you see some that haven’t made it yet, (like Deep Purple and Rush), you wonder what these guys are thinking…

Now, you may say, with only a few new names a year, it takes a while to get everybody in…well, I’m sorry, but, if Deep Purple isn’t near the top of this list from the start, you better get a new list…

And…the ‘only a few’ argument doesn’t really hold water, because you can look at some of the people who have made it in already (like Madonna), who has absolutely nothing to do with ‘rock and roll’ whatsoever (Madonna got in before Alice Cooper?…I don’t think so…)

So what gives?…Is this simply a ‘music’ hall of fame …a ‘popularity’ hall of fame…or simply a ‘we don’t have the faintest idea what we are doing’ hall of fame?…

…’cause it sure ain’t rock-n roll to me…

    They’ve turned it into a hall of shame.
