    It should be law that every time someone is introduced as a 'Grammy Award Winner' that they should have to say 'as is Beyoncé and Jay Z's 12 year old daughter'.

      OK...what Liam Gallagher did this morning is awesome.

      "Fuck the Rock n Roll hall of fame its full of BUMBACLARTS LG x," Oasis singer Liam Gallagher wrote on X, making clear his feelings on the matter. ("Bumbaclart" is a Jamaican derogatory term that literally means "ass cloth.")

        Stone Temple Pilots should be in the Hall too. Eligible since 2017. Had a #1 album in Purple, “Interstate Love Song” was the #1 Mainstream Rock Song for a record (at the time) 14 weeks. Millions of sales.

          I don't understand how the J. Geils Band aren't inducted yet.
          They were among the best performers in the 1970s and their albums produced by Bill Szymczyk were awesome.
          They did two tremendous live albums in 4 years, each recorded in Detroit.
          Guitarist J. Geils died some 7 years ago. Maybe the other five don't give a fuck about the Rock Hall,
          I don't know, but the JGB should really have been induct for a long time already.
          They induct non-rock acts while true, prominent rock 'n' roll bands are ignored.
          It definitely means nothing.

            Definitely influential and should be inducted.

            Geils has been nominated at least once. They were huge in the midwest. But are they influential?

              I'd say so. If you happen to like sexist predictable trad rock with a tinge of Phil Spector influence and East Coast shtick.

                  Eventually, every act is going to get in there anyway, so it's like...how outraged or whatever can I continue to feel when so and so gets nominated?

                    That's what the JGB was about, in a way, maybe. But they were a hell of a group who played so tight and really delivered. Predictable, but so efficient.

                          I saw them the week after I saw Ozzy with Randy Rhoads, literally a week or two before the plane crash. After seeing Ozzy, Foreigner seemed like bubblegum pop music. But I can understand why you think they were so great, they're essentially the same type of music as Van Hagar and Mean Machine.

                            Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden are the two bands from that scene that I STILL listen to with great regularity. I put on both of those bands as often as I put on VH.

                            Stone Temple Pilots were the kings of marrying amazing riffs with catchy vocal melodies. I saw them three times, but the last time was the best. I was in front row with my fiancée (now wife) two weeks before we got married. FRONT ROW at the Riviera in Chicago. The night before, Weiland had fucked up the Milwaukee show by getting drunk out of his mind before hitting the stage...so there was talk that the band was furious with him and the gig might be cancelled. We showed up, got to the front row and then realized that all the Vh1 trucks were there because the show was being filmed in HD and recorded on multi-track.

                            Our STP show ended up first showing as a one-hour special on Vh1 and then ended up being released as the WHOLE SHOW on Blu-Ray a year or so later...Stone Temple Pilots - ALIVE IN THE WINDY CITY. It was an absolutely killer show. Scott was sober, they played some not-so-often-played greats like HOLLYWOOD BITCH...and previewed four songs from their upcoming sixth album (simply titled STONE TEMPLE PILOTS).

                            Three years later, they kicked Scott out for good...and more than two years after that, Scott died.

                            I don't think STP have even been nominated...but they were easily one of the best bands to come out of the 90s. They turned their sort of grunge-copy sound from the first album into a truly unique, almost power-pop sound by their excellent third album SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP.

                                I'll take the expert's word for it! Though you haven't been to a Mean Machine show but you've been to literally dozens of Van Hagar shows, probably with your pants off!
