    Ha! Both Joan and Ted are milking it for all the publicity they can get. Do either of them really care? I doubt it. But it’s all about keeping your name out there and people buy your shit.

    Carly Simon

    Dionne Warwick - 2nd nom

    Fan vote leaderboard - https://vote.rockhall.com/en/results/

    Beck? Unless it's the Beck with Jeff in front of the name, er, um...no.
    Pat Benetar - surprised she wasn't in there already.
    Kate Bush - always a critical favorite (assumedly male critics who liked to rub one out to her), but even just in terms of the fame I'd wager precious few in America even know who she is.
    Devo - yeah, I'll buy that. Ohio natives and all.
    Duran Duran - yeeesh...look, I like Duran Duran, but rock? Mmmm, maybe a couple tunes here and there.
    Eminem - not rock.
    Eurythmics - not rock.
    Judas Priest - should've been in there already.
    Fela Kuti - ?????
    MC5 - should've been in there already.
    New York Dolls - should've been in there already.
    Dolly Parton - great country artist, classily pointed out that she has never been a rock artist and said 'thanks but no thanks'
    Rage Against The Machine - posers: hope they never get in.
    Lionel Richie - ??? The Commodores, maybe. Lionel Richie solo? That's some of the softest schmaltz ever produced.
    Carly Simon - see Lionel Richie.
    A Tribe Called Quest - see Rage Against The Machine
    Dionne Warwick - fer fuck sake, is this nomination a joke?


    Honestly, the place should just be named the Popular Music Hall Of Fame.

    With each passing year, it becomes more and more apparent that most of the important rock acts have already gotten in, and compiling these nominee lists is really an exercise in scraping the bottom.

    I mean, the whole place has always had the aura of being the antithesis of what rock was about to begin with, in terms of rock not belonging in a museum...or that it shouldn't be put in a museum, at any rate.

    Like I say, after 30+ years, the nominees going forward...it's just gonna get more and more ridiculous beyond the sterile, pussified, corporatized entity it already has been.

    The problem with the Rock Hall has always been the board in NYC. First when Jann Wenner was running it, and now John Sykes (who ran MTV when it was good) is running it. Acts get inducted for the ratings they will bring to the HBO broadcast, not because they are truly worthy.

    I agree that country, the blues, soul, R&B etc all feed back into "rock and roll," but I don't think that means Parton should get in. You gonna put Pat Boone in there for the "In A Metal Mood" album?

    The Rock Hall says acts are considered because of their influence and perpetuation of rock and roll. I figured Duran Duran would have gotten in earlier just based on the videos pushing rock in another direction. The Durannie girls in my high school were better looking than the girls who were Ozzy and Rush fans, too. So there!

    Priest kind of got the consolation prize, the Musical Excellence award. So did Ringo Starr for his solo work. I had the "Ringo" 8 track, and as much as I liked it as a kid, I know now it was nowhere the caliber of work Harrison and McCartney were putting out. It's like the pat on the head and "good job!" version, I think Priest deserved better.

    Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis aren't exactly rock either. Neither was Nile Rodgers, if you only base it on the Chic stuff. But they wrote and produced HUGE hits, and all that feeds back in.

    The original founder of MTV was Robert Pittman, who is actually a distant cousin of mine, though I've never met him. After he left MTV he went on to be involved with Clear Channel and AOL/Time Warner, so I suspect we probably wouldn't get along very well if we ever meet at a family reunion.

    Donny Osmond is a distant cousin of mine and I never got any free tickets to anything. I did edit ski movies in the old Osmond studios though. They had their exotic cars parked on the sound stage and some of Marie's costumes were still there from television show days. Man. Those sequin covered dresses weigh a ton. They feel like they are made of chain mail or something.

    She was the first to say it. She was on NPR saying she wanted them to withdraw her nomination. They wouldn't so she said she'd accept if winning but would do a rock album if she is inducted...
