    Cool, that makes 3 of the 4 members of Chickenfoot entrants. Wonder if Satch will ever get the nod for his solo work...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Doubt it. Satch became eligible this year with "Not Of This Earth" (1986). Rush still not in. I love Chad Smith.

    But let him in and not Neil Peart???

    Congrats to the RHCP!

    However, the RRHOF is a complete nonentity created on a baseless facade of relevance, sort of like the current college football bowl system. Its some arbitrary measure of "whatever" pop music means to a bunch of balding dudes that still have earrings in their left earlobe.

    For every one person screaming about Rush not being in, there are 20 more screaming about that steaming pile of dog shit that is called Kiss not being in. Apparently putting the "S" in "S-E-X" is something that needs to be enshrined in a glass case on the shores of the mistake by the lake. On second thought.....

    If there were a true meritocracy for Rock n Roll Greats, there would be a place for Rush (although I don't listen to them personally), but I'd make their, and almost everyone else's, shallow exhibits bow down to Iron Maiden.

    I guess congrats.

    What I mean is, he's a helluva drummer and seems to be a great guy.

    But, I don't see how in God's green earth the RHCP get in before maybe about fifty different bands that are more deserving.

    Last time I checked, you were one of the guys with a sense of humor around here.

    Next time I hear a gay/San Francisco joke, I'll remember to personalize it and get offended.

    I wasn't offended at all, just hadn't heard that term in a long time. In terms of the Rock Hall... now THAT is definitely a mistake by the lake.

    Cool. I would have been bummed out if actually did offend you.

    Don't know if there are fifty more deserving bands, but whatever.

    A bands inclusion has nothing to do with another bands exclusion. I guess a case could be made of a limited number of eligible acts a year, but the bands we all know should be in and aren't-is because Jann is a fag( yeah I said it) and holds grudges.

    RHCP aren't taking Kiss or Rush's place at the table. Jann's not inviting them.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I love coffee and sarcasm.

    I just don't see what they have done to be considered an all time great band.

    Maybe they are and I am just missing it, which is fine, but damn, I would rather listen to Warrant than the RHCP.

    I like some songs, but I just don't think think they are anything special.

    Glad others like them though, just my opinion, which is worth even less than the standard $0.02.
