    Additionally, Jann Wenner is stepping down as Rock Hall Foundation chairman and is being replaced by John Sykes. You'll remember Sykes as one of the guys that started MTV, and more recently, as someone who destroyed rock radio as he headed up what used to be Clear Channel and is now iHeart Radio.

      Very unlikely that both Priest and Motorhead get in at the same time. That wouldn't make for a diverse enough broadcast. Same with Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk, and maybe NIN.

      I'd like to see Thin Lizzy and T. Rex get in.

      Rundgren, NIN, and Benatar bring the Cleveland connection. Runt has always been popular here, Reznor was in a local synth pop band, and Benatar's husband Neil Giraldo is a local.

      Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks asked for more females to be inducted but I don't think that's enough to warrant Whitney Houston's nomination. If they want a woman inductee, give it to Liz Phair.

        Lots of dead people. I assume they don't like having too many of them as they can't play or even pay $10k a seat for dinner or whatever it is...

          I doubt Reznor would show up.

            The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is so Un-rock and roll. A real rocker would tell them to fuck themselves. The real hall of fame is a arena full of screaming fans and the band bringing the house down and people taking three days to recover from what they were subjected to.
            No! You can't have the keys to the wine cellar!

              I have the old Kraftwerk on vinyle for the fun, but there's nothing rock 'n' roll in there.

                  The Eurythmics
                  Dolly (as a token winner) but shes not rock 'n' roll which only goes to show how much of a fucking joke this all is.
                  Pat Banal Tard (maybe)
                  Judas Pringels Chips (another limey token)
                  Duran Durdumb

                    Dolly Parton is a goddamned legend, but she's not remotely rock n roll. Same for Dionne Warwick. Thank fuck it wasn't Whitney Houston.... she's not only not rock n roll, she's the antithesis of rock n roll. Her music was so bland it made Pat Boone look like punk rock by comparison.

                    Lionel Richie??? For "BrickHouse" & "Easy Like Sunday Morning" maybe. NOT for anything he did after he left the Commodores.

                      Horse Hockey. Whitney Houston did more cocaine than Rick James, Stevie Nicks and the Eagles combined. She used to stop her shows in mid-song because she was hallucinating seeing "bugs" on stage. Now, that's rock 'n' roll.

                      Oh, and Russell Wilson is coming to Denvoid

                          There was some F A T bald fuck who was either a Rogan or Stern sycophant claiming he dropped so much acid that he had a "spiritual awakening" by listening to the guitar playing of Neil Giraldo (and David Gilmour) while tripping. Horsetooth Pat herself didn't do bad songs - they certainly were less irritating when she left MTV behind her and moved on to non-commercial shores. Problem was she was little dynamic range in her voice and Neil's bombastic soloing covered up for it. Best song she ever did was Painted Desert. Neil's guitar playing shines here.

                            Scary that Boone's In a 'Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy' is now 25 years old so he is now eligible under that persona...

                              The same people that nominated Whitney Houston would have already nominated Boone for his white bread cover versions of songs from the 1950s....
