Honestly, I don't really care too much on who is inducted now.  Few thoughts on those who did get in.

 

Bon Jovi.  Whatever.  

The Cars.  Any band that can play straight up blues with a funky keyboard on top and convince people they are New Wave, nice job.

Dire Straits.  Well deserved.  Always had an appreciation for Mark Knopfler's playing.  Especially liked the stuff they did prior to Brothers in Arms.

The Moody Blues.  About time.  Stupid not to have them there a long time ago.  Wish Ray Thomas were still alive to see this.

Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.  Never heard of either.  Get the impression that they are the token "non-rock and roll" acts that they seem to have every year.

 

Little disappointed that Kate Bush did not get much support, considering that voice and the complexity of the songs she wrote.

Some say complexity, others say weird.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Was really surprised Radiohead didn't make it in.  As a "critic's band" you'd figure they'd get in on the first ballot.

Honestly, I've never listed to anything by Radiohead.  Any suggestions on a good intro to them?

OK Computer would probably be a good starting point.

But, but, they're not Rock and Roll. They're a bunch of singing Italian waiters and a harmony hairspray using fop who dresses in big girl's blouses.

Also, the singing Italian Waiter in chief is still wearing his inflatable footwear.

Justin Heywood called and said "Take that back!"

Glad to see The Cars get in and the Straights just for Sultans alone.

 

Bon Jovi got in?? Now they're just trying to sell tickets.

You don't scare me Hayward.

I'll take you on with one arm behind my back - just don't use you hairspray like Mace...

I'm happy that the Moody Blues got in, but disappointed that Kate Bush didn't.

Mace? He might turn it into a blowtorch. Or light his farts on fire. I don't know. I've never seen a Moody Blues show.

I've seen two. Between heavy lidded eyes. It was good to be the youngest person at a concert though. You get bus loads of old women from the Old Folk's home all tripping over their zimmers to get up close to Justin. You also get a toilet break every two songs - although all the old women all stink of piss anyway...

Yawn, the usual whores of RSM dreck.

Like Nick Sick, I have seen the MBs twice. 

 

Once at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.

 

What I really didn't like was that during some songs, the flute-playing guy played the tambourine.

 

That is a very gay thing to do.

 

Stand there an play the tambourine.
