    Default Yup. Again no =VH= in the Hall...but, hey,

    John Cougar & the Sir Douglas quintet (WHO THE FUCK???) are....

    From F(aux) News.com:

    Cat Stevens Nominated for Rock Hall

    It had to happen eventually. Cat Stevens — now known as Yusuf Islam — has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    My sources tell me he's a shoo-in, too.

    Stevens had several huge-selling popular records in the 1970s, until he became a Muslim and changed his name. Those hits were "Moon Shadow," "Peace Train," "Oh Very Young," a cover version of Sam Cooke's "Another Saturday Night," "Father and Son" and "Wild World."

    A decade or more ago, Stevens was roundly denounced for seeming to back the fatwa, or death sentence, placed by Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini on the head of writer Salman Rushdie for his novel "The Satanic Verses."

    Last year he was refused entry into the United States on suspicion — ridiculous as it was — that he was a terrorist of some sort.

    Nevertheless, Islam does run a school in London's Islington neighborhood that is closely watched by authorities.

    Stevens is not the only slam-dunk on the Rock Hall list.

    For reasons that elude me, jazz legend Miles Davis is also there. So are the Dave Clark Five, John Mellencamp, Blondie, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the J. Geils Band, the Sex Pistols, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash, the Stooges and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    In other words, one woman (Smith) and no R&B stars. I guess we exhausted the latter category in the last couple of years with the Dells, the O'Jays and Percy Sledge.

    But the list of omissions continues to be a problem. Where are Linda Ronstadt and Carly Simon? The Moody Blues? Todd Rundgren? Billy Preston ?

    And if Davis — a weird choice if ever there was one — is indeed selected from the above group, then posthumous entries wouldn't seem to be a problem.

    In that case, Motown's Mary Wells — who had hits like "My Guy," "Don't Mess With Bill" and "Beaten to the Punch" — should have been in already

    How about Jann Wenner's eyeballs for volume & tone knobs?

    No shit? That would have been a good title but I'd have to agree with putting "Van Halen" in there somewhere. I think you should send those assholes a copy of your book bro, let them learn about a real fucking band that deserves to be in there!!!! PS...looking forward to the book bro!!!

    Default "RRHOF"

    You know, in the few posts I leave here, I usually end them with "F the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!". The time I leave a post on another discussion and don't do that, I come back and see this garbage.

    I know we are all biased here, but how can anyone in their right mind, whether they like this band (personally or professionally) or not, NOT put these guys in? In sports, these guys wouldn't be just "IN" the hall, they would be first ballot, shoe-in HOFs. With all singers, period! If you are\were a member, you are in. That's how good these guys are. (Okay, I know some people will disagree with that part. I'm just giving a shout out to the III Brigade because it was still Van Halen.)

    This bothers me to no end (anybody care? didn't think so)! I know someone has said this before, but what is the criteria for the RRHOF besides your first release being 25 years old?

    Take it easy everybody! Anybody going to Cabo? I'm there 10/08 - 10/15. I guess I'm going to go see a "minor league" act or something by RRHOF standards.

    "F" THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    REALLY "F" THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a feeling they have been asked the question as to why VH is not in many times by many people because it's such a glaring omission.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!

    Travesty I think just about sums it up. It'll happen eventually but why it's taking this long is beyond explanation. Put Van Halen's creds alongside any of this years nominees and they win hands down. I just don't fuckin get it.
