Change the Name Already
I've said it many times in the past, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs to change its name to the Music Hall of Fame. Then they need to open a new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and only let Rock Bands in. I'm looking over the list of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees for this year and a lot of them deserve to be in a real Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They include; Dire Straits The Moody Blues, The Cars, The J. Geils Band, The Zombies, Judas Priest and even Bon Jovi. But come on, Chaka Khan?
There are artists in the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame' like the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and others that have nothing to do with rock and roll at all. ABBA? Yeah, they rocked. Give me a break. How much you wanna bet that L.L. Cool J makes it in this year?
I personally think it's a joke to call it that. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way.
If they ever build a 'Real Rock N Roll Hall of Fame' for rockers only, and they need help deciding what bands and artists should be in it, they can call me.
