jazzville skyline: “…rock-n-roll hall of shame…”

This year, Guns-n-Roses will be inducted into the Rock-n-Roll Hall Of Fame…

Guns-n-Roses?…Are you kidding me?

They had one big album, two minor albums, and then imploded…and these guys make the Hall when acts like Rush and Deep Purple have yet to scale that wall?…

It was bad enough, a few years ago, when they inducted Madonna into the Hall…

Nothing against her or her long career, but she ain’t ‘rock-n-roll’…

And then, to add insult to injury, they had Justin Timberlake present her…

What are these people thinking?…

And now, the list of obvious heavyweights that are still waiting to hear back grows and grows, while inconsequential acts are sliding under the door, just because…well, I don’t have an answer for that one, your guess is as good as mine…

Perhaps it’s a case of the ‘short-attention-spans’ that seem to prevail over most of these types of honors, like the Academy Awards, who so often forget any films that weren’t released within the previous ‘three-month radius’…

Or perhaps it’s just another example of ‘Ageism In America’…The ones who are voting are the ones who weren’t even around when musicians were actually playing rock-n-roll, instead of this warmed-over pabulum they’re trying to pass off today…

Something tells me it’s time for the Hall to shut their doors and re-think their mission…

Either that or at least re-think their name…
