      As for The Spinners, they were big in the early 70s... at least on this side of the pond....

          Cyndi Lauper just happened to launch her career at the right time to be on MTV at its musical peak. The music itself was standard 80s pop, but the videos were entertaining, most of them featuring some of the WWF wrestlers of that era. She's now doing AARP ads for a paycheck.

          No, seriously......

            Sheryl Crow sucks.

            This rip-off institution has been scraping the bottom of the barrel for so long that this is what it has finally come down to: Sheryl Lame-Ass Vanilla AOR Crow. A rock star for mall moms.

            Fuck it. Let her in. Let 'em all in. Get Justin Bieber in there, while they're at it.

            The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

            Man, what a sad, dried up, limp, lifeless state rock music is in currently, eh? Has been for quite a while, too. About...mmmmmmmmmm....a quarter-century or so, I'd say.

            Ah, well. Fortunately, there's the rock music that was made when the form mattered, and fortunately a lot of it was made when the form mattered.

            Better to look a few decades backward for rock inspiration than try and get some from the likes of Dave Grohl...or Sheryl Crow.

              I didn't hate her and what do I know but it's always such a weird list.

              Iron Maiden released their first album 43 years ago and have sold 200 million.

                I am glad that they have at least now confirmed that their definition of 'Rock N Roll' as meaning absolutely nothing - that does explain how music from the elevator on the Love Boat qualifies...

                Previously I had assumed they meant the 'Hard Rock Cafe' definition which is maximizing how to make money from shit that occasionally slightly overlaps with rock almost by accident.

                I almost should have paid for the unsolicited photo last time I visited one of their restaurants when some twat stuck an $80 chinese strat copy into my hands as I walked in before I realized what was happening just for my WTF expression.

                Food was tasteless but very expensive shit too...

                Sorry I'm ranting.

                  The Rock Hall does that picture shit too, a backdrop in the line to the ticket counter and of course they charge for it. I have a membership to the HOF, I'm a half-hour away, there a couple times a year, and I know what I look like. I don't want any pictures.

                  Never eaten there and I think it's just snacks anyways. Our holiday party was there one year when I worked at Progressive, that was pretty cool. Food was catered though. A few years before the HOF allowed cameras and around the time that phone cameras still weren't very good.

                  I agree on the Hard Rock Cafe food. Overpriced and not very good. We used to stop before shows, when the competing casino bought the building the Hard Rock moved out almost overnight. The food at the Hard Rock Rocksino (casino) was good but still a little overpriced.

                  The HOF Foundation and the actual museum itself are still separate, the museum has to deal with the shit decisions on inductees.

                      Eh, I rant a bit about it, too. Dunno why, because the RnRHoF is as meaningless as the Hard Rock Cafe is. To me, anyway.

                      Went into a HRC franchise down here once, located inside a casino. A bunch of instruments and stage clothes behind clear plastic display cases. Bunch of pictures of rock musicians hanging on the walls. Overpriced, greasy food of the quality I'd expect at a sporting event. Depressing experience. Mostly because to me rock music is (or should be) something living, breathing...vital.

                      Things in a museum or on display behind glass represent something that is dead.

                      Thankfully, the music itself (at least the music that was made back in the day) still gets me off.

                        Rocksino had one of Ed's Harleys near the main bar/HR Cafe. Not sure if they moved all that stuff to Cincy when Hard Rock took over the casino there.

                        I did prefer Hard Rock running the local casino vs MGM now. Got third row tickets for Cheap Trick at MGM in April.

                            Renewed my Rock Hall membership and stopped by Wednesday. Very light crowd, it is not exactly tourist season here. "Duet" membership went up $25 to $100, I can get in and bring a guest for free every visit. Tickets are $35 otherwise so I'll need to make a couple more trips to get my money's worth. Members get a discount at the museum shop (where everything is overpriced anyways) and usually there's presales for concert tickets.

                            There's an EVH display but it's all newer EVH gear and nothing of his personal stash. I'll probably go back in a month and get a pic.

                              I didn't realize the signatures on the wall at the HOF were on the website.
