jazzville skyline: and the shame just keeps rolling along

by rocky-o

Ah sweet death…where is thy Sting?…

Actually, he’s on the list of this year’s nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, which has, time and again, proven itself to be hideously named, and worse, absolutely out of their minds…

As I have previously mentioned in recent years, the Hall Of Shame has shown itself to not be a ‘Rock And Roll’ hall, but a music hall…fine, but then call it that…

And, if you’re gonna use the words ‘rock and roll’ in your moniker, there are some staples in rock that you have to abide by…

Obviously, The Beatles, The Stones, Zeppelin, etc…

And two of those ‘etceteras’ should obviously be Deep Purple and Yes…you can’t have a rock and roll hall without them…and they were both nominated last year, and they both lost…this year, neither of them are nominated at all…how simply pathetic…

But, for the few of you who still actually care about such things, this year’s nominees include, (as i mentioned), Sting, plus Lou Reed, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bill Withers, The Spinners, Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, Chic, Green Day, The Paul Butterfield Band, The Smiths, Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A. and War…

Now, I won’t say anything bad about Lou…he’s already in with The Velvet Underground, and deserves to be again for his solo work…Same goes for Sting…and as for Joan Jett, I love Joanie, and she can gladly take her place as well…Stevie Ray…bluesy but so good…Bill Withers, The Spinners, excellent as well, although not rock at all…

The rest should live to fight another day…but not today…

I’m just wondering if I will live long enough to actually see a real Rock And Roll Hall Of FameĀ one day…

Maybe…one day…but not today…
