Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

The latest nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced, and they are: The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, KISS, LL Cool J, The Meters, NWA, Nirvana, The Replacements, Linda Ronstadt,Cat Stevens, Link Wray, Yes and the Zombies. Out of these 16 acts, 5 will be formally inducted into the HOF in April 2014.

My official Facebook post on this topic:

2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees announced. I think Linda Ronstadt should ALREADY be in there. Biggest female star of the 1970s (before my time, of course… wink, wink). She helped launch the career of the Eagles, for God’s sake! She influenced so many female country artists, from Trisha Yearwood to Terri Clark, with hits like “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “Blue Bayou.” I like Nirvana, but think it’s too soon for them. I hate disco, but think Chic is deserving of the HOF. Nile Rodgers collaborated with Daft Punk this year on the monster hit “Get Lucky.” Not sure on the rap artists… Having worked at an oldies station, I do have an affinity for the Zombies.. “She’s Not There,” etc. Working at Z93, I should perhaps say something positive about Yes, KISS, and Peter Gabriel, but… nah. It’s all about Linda. So sad that the HOF waited until she announced she has an incurable disease to think of including her.

Oh yeah, Hall and Oates should be in there too. Cheesy Easy listenin’. 🙂

BTW, if Nirvana gets in (doubtful), their induction will come just a couple of months after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. Man, where DOES the time go?

What do YOU think???
