    I did the backstage thing in 08 and one of the bass drums has a fridge in it.

    The RNRHOF is an interesting place. A word of advice, start in the basement. I almost totally missed it.

    Why is Ted Nugent not it the RRHOF? He's been playing since the 60's.

    Abba is in the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame"

    Grand Master Flash is in the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame"

    Madonna is in the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame"

    But not Ted.

    Same reason why Rush aren't, because the hall is a joke filled with ex-hippy types who consider Ted Nugent and his ilk, music "for the small people" and the "unenlightened". Remember, they put Edward at no. 75 or something on the list of greatest guitar players.

    Yes I saw that when I was sitting diagonal to the left side of the stage at the May '08 show at MSG. I saw Dave open one of the bass drums up and pull a bottled water or a Red Bull out. I laughed my ass off when I saw that.

    That was in Rolling Stone magazine.

    But I share your disdain for the Hall. It's bullshit.

    Wenner has endured quite a bit of controversy during his career, as it relates to his involvement in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans and supporters of several artists, which include Steve Marriott, Chicago, Deep Purple, KISS, The Monkees, Electric Light Orchestra, Yes, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Motörhead, Jethro Tull, Linda Ronstadt, The Miracles, The Marvelettes, Mary Wells[14], The B-52s, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Rush,[15] The Guess Who, Bachman–Turner Overdrive and The Moody Blues,[16] have placed a large amount of blame on Wenner for keeping them out of the Hall of Fame. They claim Wenner has lobbied to keep them from consideration and nomination to the Hall based on personal bias and a dislike for their music. Supporters of Beatles/Mersey Beat champion and manager, Brian Epstein, also feel that he has been unfairly precluded from nomination for honor in the Non-Performer category. This omission has given rise to much speculation as to the possible reasons for Wenner's consistent snubbing of Epstein's arguably inestimable contribution to the infrastructure of rock and roll.

    In June 2007, Monkees bassist Peter Tork came forward and alleged to the New York Post that Wenner is excluding the group:





    [Wenner] "doesn't care what the rules are and just operates how he sees fit. It is an abuse of power. I don't know whether The Monkees belong in the Hall of Fame, but it's pretty clear that we're not in there because of a personal whim." Tork believes Wenner doesn't like the fact that The Monkees, who were originally cast as actors for a TV sitcom, didn't play their own instruments on their first two records. "Jann seems to have taken it harder than everyone else, and now, 40 years later, everybody says, 'What's the big deal? Everybody else does it.' Nobody cares now except him. He feels his moral judgment in 1967 and 1968 is supposed to serve in 2007.





    In addition, Wenner has seen additional contraversy due to his decision to allow Rap, Hip-Hop and Disco acts into the Hall of Fame. Many argue that expanding the Hall of Fame to these genres defeats the purpose of creating and maintaining a hall of fame to feature the genre of rock and roll music.
