jazzville skyline: “…hall pass…”

“…hall pass…”

Not to be redundant, but…It’s that time of year again, when the so-called ‘Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’ announces its nominees to be inducted…and…just to get this out of the way…I still believe that the hall of fame should be only for ‘rock and roll’, otherwise, change the name…and, of course, once again they missed out on so many eligible nominees to choose from, more deserving than many on their list…(at least vinyl has made a comeback)…

but anyway…here you have it…the list for the 2016 inductions…

Deep Purple…Yes…The Spinners…Cheap Trick…Janet Jackson…
Steve Miller…Chaka Khan…The J.B.’s…Chicago…Los Lobos…
Chic…Nine Inch Nails…The Cars…N.W.A…The Smiths…

Now it goes without saying that, Deep Purple and Yes should have been in there years ago…That alone proves any point on how ridiculous the hall of fame is…Chicago have had a long warranted history and certainly could easily fit…Some like Steve Miller and Cheap Trick, while certainly not bad ideas, I’m sure there were many others that could have cut that line…

The Spinners..I love The Spinners…One of the best unsung R&B groups of all time…but here again…in a rock hall of fame?…probably not…Same with Janet and Chaka, although Chaka’s early funk rock days with the band Rufus, could put her over the line, and Janet is a Jackson, if you’re nasty…

The rest seem to be mostly filler…not bad, but certainly looking like someone didn’t bother to take the time to find truly worthy opponents…

One such worthy nominee would have been the late Harry Nilsson, who has had a recent campaign uprising in his honor…Another would have been Suzi Quatro, who was one of the biggest influences on last year’s winner Joan Jett…

We’ll just have to wait and see how this spins out…
