rrcirclelogo 385x280 Weakest Nominees Yet For Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
First, here’s who’s not even nominated this year: No [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Monkees[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]E-Street Band[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Deep Purple[/lastfm], no[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Todd Rundgren[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Moody Blues[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chicago[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Guess Who[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mary Wells[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Yes[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rush[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miracles[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Linda Ronstadt[/lastfm], no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dionne Warwick[/lastfm], and no [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Connie Francis[/lastfm].  That’s who wasn’t nominated for this years class.  Who was nominated?  Hold on to your hats….. 

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Cure[/lastfm];  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Donovan[/lastfm];  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Heart[/lastfm];  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm];  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Donna Summer[/lastfm];  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Spinners[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beastie Boys[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eric B. & Rakim[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Guns ‘N Roses[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joan Jett & The Blackhearts[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Freddie King[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Laura Nyro[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rufus with Chaka Khan[/lastfm]; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Small Faces[/lastfm]/[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Faces[/lastfm]; and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]War[/lastfm].
I could write a chapter on this choice of niminees, but I can summerize it best by just one comparison:
Rufus with Chaka Khan over Linda Ronstadt? Are you kidding me? R’R HOF lost all credability this year.
