      Wasn't aware of the various award subsets (Musical Influence Award, Musical Excellence Award), although wouldn't a band's degree of influence and excellence be part and parcel as to them being nominated/inducted in the first place?

      I find it bemusing as to whoever out there in rock fandom bitches that such and such didn't make it on the first try or whatever, since clearly everybody and anybody will get in there eventually.

      Have never been to the place myself, but I imagine I'd have the same reaction I did when going to a Hard Rock establishment and seeing some famous musician's instrument or item of clothing under glass...the reaction being that rock and roll placed in a museum or inertly encased in glass represents the exact opposite of the living, breathing nature of rock and roll that attracted me to the music form in the first place.

      But, you know, whatever...as a living, breathing thing rock and roll has pretty much petered out anyway.
