ROFL ... the definition of the term "Rock and Roll" just gets broader and broader doesn't it?

In fairness, the inductee list was generated from the names submitted for induction. Whomever submitted the name(s) initially, they should be smacked upside-the-head with one of Papa Jo Jones' cymbals.

Best not to even look, never mind care.
I don't.
It's a marketing exercise used to regenerate interest in classic artists.
The more controversy, the more interest generated.
I put this alongside MD readers polls in my 'ignore' folder.

Who?

Just kidding.  ;)

It is surprising. A rock band that's been around for 30+ years, still making relevant music, and who set the tone for many bands that would follow. Even Neil Peart can be credited for his innovations for progressive rock in his early years.

i suppose the nominees are picked just as the baseball hall of fame nominees are. after so many years you qualify to go on the ballott, but do most have an actual chance of being elected? nope. kiss not even on the ballot!

He said "fame" not "shame" ... as in shameful self-promotion.

Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea. I know a lot of people I could nominate for the Drummers Hall of Shameful Self-Promotion. We could put all of the new members, those who join this forum for the sole purpose of spamming, at the front of the line for immediate addition.  ;)
