Inductees .....
Depeche Mode
The Doobie Brothers
Whitney Houston
Nine Inch Nails
The Notorious B.I.G.
T. Rex

Don't get me started.....at least 2 on that list I don't think deserved to be in while at least 3 or 4 on the nominee list that do.

It's like any other election. The voters' balloting doesn't necessarily validate your personal preferences.

You are right and the voters balloting also doesn't necessarily validate good taste .

Agree with the inclusion of the Doobie Brothers. T. Rex should have been in there a long time ago; they were a very influential glam rock outfit. Personally I like NIN and Depeche Mode most from the list (though I question if the latter is really rock). I like some Whitney Houston but don't feel she at all belongs in the ROCK N ROLL hall of fame. And The Notorious B.I.G.? uh no.

Pat Benatar and Judas Priest should be in there in place of those last two. I might swap out Depeche Mode for Soundgarden. I feel Motorhead and Thin Lizzy are also long overdue.

Of course this is just all my opinion.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame is a joke....they have shown that again this year.....with it's anemic list of inductees.

Instead of Houston, Depeche Mode and BIG they should be inducting Jethro Tull, Guess Who, and Joe Cocker...or even Warren Zevon and Procol Harum.

These people at the Shame wouldn't know good rock music if it bit them in the ass.

BTW...I am also a fan of Pretty Things -S F Sorrow and Zombies -Odessey and Oracle..have both on cd...have a reissue of Sorrow on vinyl and Odessey....had a chance to buy an original Odessey some years back but the guy wanted $100 and I didn't want to pay that much...I wish I had since they go for more now. I have not seen an original Sorrow in the stores the last 10 years but I know they fetch a nice price also....anywhere from $150-300 in good shape,...it's hell to be a collector of old vinyl

I'm actually surprised that Jethro Tull, Guess Who, Procol Harum and Joe Cocker aren't already there. But then again they never asked for my preferences and I learned long ago that elections don't necessarily result in my preferred outcomes.
