Rock hall of fame snubs Rock n’ Roll
Induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has become something of a joke. How big a joke depends on how seriously you take your rock.
In: acts like Madonna (shown below getting her man-freak on, or ready for the upcoming Crossfit national championships… or something), Laura Nyro (yes, the Laura Nyro, this go-round, although she did pen Eli’s Comin’), and Abba.
Not in: acts including Deep Purple, Rush, and Kiss.
Madonna and Abba have a ton of great songs, but… are they rock?
While there are eight to a dozen superb Jackson Brown songs (and he’s in), that compares poorly to Steve Miller (who is out).
And consider Heart: no Heart?! Versus Laura Nyro?
