Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2004 Inductees Announced


CEREMONY WILL BE HELD MONDAY, MARCH 15, 2004 IN NEW YORK

New York, New York, November 20, 2003 -The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation is proud to announce the 2004 Inductees in the “Performer” category. The announcement was made today by Suzan Evans, Executive Director of the Foundation.

The following artists will be inducted at the Nineteenth Annual Induction Ceremony, which will be held Monday, March 15th in New York at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel:

Jackson Browne -- For more than three decades, Jackson Browne has been one of rock’s consummate singer-songwriters. Writing intricately crafted, deeply personal songs, he made his mark as a master chronicler of the affairs of the heart.


The Dells -- The Dells began recording in 1953 and still perform today with virtually all original members. They have performed and charted in every decade since the Fifties, making them one of the most influential vocal groups of all time.


George Harrison -- Post-Beatles, George Harrison’s career spanned three decades during which he not only furthered his artistry as a musician, songwriter, and producer (of music and numerous films), but as a humanitarian on the world stage.


Prince – Self-produced since his debut at age 20, Prince is one of the most unpredictable as well as one of the most magnificently charismatic figures in the entire pop landscape. His fusion of rock, funk, soul, metal and punk has defied all stereotypes.


Bob Seger – Detroit’s standard-bearer of rock and soul began his multi-platinum streak in 1975, followed by a decade of nearly 20 consecutive top 40 singles, all of which celebrated Bob Seger’s allegiance to and love affair with the music that provided his escape from an impoverished childhood.


Traffic -- Nurtured in the communal flush of the British Invasion, Traffic outgrew its
psychedelic pop roots to become a true fusion group – melding a folk-inspired simplicity with bluesy jazz improv that was given plenty of space on its extended compositions.


ZZ Top -- With the Texas soul, outlaw boogie, and souped-up hot rod funk served up by the durable power trio of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – ZZ Top – is literally the last word in rock. Three-plus decades on, these Funky Kings might just go on forever.


In commenting on this year’s inductees, Evans said, “These inductees represent many influential genres of rock and roll, including pop, funk, soul, boogie and psychedelia. We expect this year’s show to be unique and exciting with highly anticipated moments.”

Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria considered includes the influence and significance of the artist's contribution to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll.

The Foundation's nominating committee, composed of rock and roll historians, selects nominees each year in the "artist" category. Ballots are then sent to an international voting body of about 700 rock experts.

The honoree in the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Non-Performer Category will be announced shortly.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was formed in 1983 and the first induction ceremony was held in 1986. All inductees are represented in the "Hall of Fame", a permanent exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum, in Cleveland Ohio.


Later, Karen

Well, Prince "has been around" for 25 years. Whether or not he's been making good music for 25 years is certainly debateable... A lot of us here have been around that long but we're not getting in the Hall of Fame... although some of us should

Have Mercy!

Been a Top fan almost as long as an ABB one. The "event" of the year" when I lived in Houston, was ZZ bringing the current tour home for 4 or 5 sold-out shows in the Summit.

Always liked Jackson Browne's songs. Gregg does a nice rendition of "Shadow Dream Song" on his anthology, apparently they roomed together, I believe when Gregg lived in LA for awhile.

Oh yeah. Tres Hombres is one of my all-time favorite guitar albums.

Since you are a fan Ron, hope you don't mind if i ask you a question. How do you feel about the re-mix they did on the earliest albums including Tres Hombres back in the 80's where they added all the processed digital echo on the drums? I can not stand the "re-vamped" version of La Grange. The most recent CD copy of TH that I bought is stilL using that damn altered mix. I hate it!!! Good thing I still have the original LP. I really hope the new box set went back to the original mixes.

I didn't like it one bit!

It's too bad that Frank was so strung out on heroin he couldn't play worth sh!t during the early years. But the butcher job they did on the early albums was garbage!

And the new vocals on Jesus Just Left Chicago make me ill. It's one thing to sweeten the sound with better technology, I guess. Don't go back and redo the thing and tell me it's better. It no longer is a true representation of the band at that time.

I agree with alot of folks in saying that it is time for Skynyrd to be inducted!!!! As well as, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest!! What about Deep Purple? Have they been inducted into the "HALL" yet? Iam very pleased to see Traffic in there finally. I think Little Feat are shamefully overlooked every year also!!!

I'm not actually a Skynyrd fan(okay a little) but I do recognize thier importance to the Southern rock genre & to rock n roll- and lets face it, they’re the southern rock band around here. And they are important!!!!!(becoming my favorite word lately). So ,having said that, I do indeed advocate they be inducted and in all fairness, they should've been before the Top .

Very true. Sweetening the original sound would have been fine but all this crap was nothing more than a cynical move on the band's part to capitalize on their new "breakthrough sound" when Eliminator hit big. But the "new" guitar and drum mixes sound so "80's" that this once classic material now sounds horribly dated.

I screamed the first time I heard Six Pack.

The early stuff had such a great sound. When in the hell are they going to go back and make this stuff right for the long time fans?

Top's manager was supposed to be so shrewd & smart. Micro-managed their every move. They couldn't sit in with anyone playing clubs, concerts, etc.

How could he not see that this was a horrible way to go?

Bill Hamm, what were you thinking?

I'm not a Prince fan, but he's sort of an amalgam of James Brown and Jimii Hendrix (not, not in the same league as Hendrix -just some of the qualities). If he had been around in the 60's, doing the same stuff he's been doing, we'd probably have a higher opinion of him!

Skynnyrd ... I guess those guys ARE the kings of "Southern Rock" (whatever the hell that is). They're the kings of what I call the "Confederate Flag Bands". No matter what you think of them, they've made an indelible mark on the face of rock and roll.

Never knew Bill was such a micromanager.

Maybe the boys got talked into or pushed into the re-mixes against their better judgement. At any rate I've never been to their official website or anything. But I'm wondering if anyone else has tried to campaign to bring the original mixes back.

It was legend in Houston. Billy would be up front or backstage for shows, SRV in particular. Everyone KNEW he couldn't take the stage to jam. Contractual bs with BH. I had a regular customer who was in the band's employ, guitar tech. & wharehouse mgr. among other duties. HE used to play with some of the club acts, but the Big Three couldn't. Had to keep the "mystique" intact.

LS has been trashed around here because that guy crammed them down our throats. But I will always defend them. All the albums before the accident were great albums. Skynrd have tons of "classic radio songs" which are really strong songs even if you have heard them millions of times. My favorites are the ones that weren't played on radio. Hell there is a lot of music I can dislike before I have to tear into a solid rock band. Roonie had his own style and never sold out his beliefs. That is alright by me. They deserved to go straight in. Just my opinion.

Prince isn't my thing but he is different and also follows only himself. Great live shows are what built him. Does it all himself and is smart enough to hire great musicians when he toured.

I am glad Bob Seger is in. I have always enjoyed both his albums and shows. Too bad he kind of disappeared.

ZZ Top has plenty of strong albums. The older the better in my opinion. They became a parody of themselves after a while and seem to just rehash old songs with differnt keyboards or effects. I have been lucky enough to meet lots of rock stars over the years. Billy Gibbons was not one of the most friendly. Not just to me but everyone. On two different occasions. Barely had time for the fans. Sad but true. They have also had a guitarist in the wings for years or played along with sampled guitars at times. Just bring the guy on stage. It is pretty obvious when two guitar parts are being played. Aerosmith has done the same thing with keyboardists most of their career. Just let the guy play on stage. Who would care? But in the end they deserve the HOF because of all the great tunes.

Jackson Browne is the least deserving of the groups in my opinion. I enjoy his songs but I think there are many groups more deserving.
