Was wondering when Nina Simone would get into the R&R HOF.

Don't let the fact that she wasn't R&R stand in the way.

I am stunned that Radiohead and Rage Against The Machine (who were on the initial nominations list) didn't make it. IT seems like they would be the favorites of the people on that committee.

Glad Dire Straits and The Cars are getting in.

I am really disappointed that Judas Priest did not make it. After Black Sabbath, they did more to define the Heavy Metal genre than any other band. And after over 40 years, they are still going to this day.

I have personal prejudice here, having been a big fan when they were still unknown. Some music freak buddies of mine turned me on to Sad Wings of Destiny, which was basically an unknown underground record. I saw their very first U.S. tour at The Santa Monica Civic, must have been 1976. They opened for Mahogany Rush.........I believe the second band was Climax Blues Band but my memory is foggy. Priest opened and were only given a 1/2 hour set. In that 1/2 hour, let me tell you, they knocked the sold out crowd BACKWARDS. It was an incredibly powerful onslaught of sound. And it was also unfair for anyone to have to take the stage after them.

I also saw their first headliniing U.S. tour.............at The Starwood in Hollywood, a 500 seat club! Hell Bent For Leather was the new one. Hard to describe how cool it was to see them in such a small venue. They still hadn't hit the airways at ALL. It was after that in which they changed their strategy and started to write some hits and began hitting the airwaves. But that NEVER diminished the power of their live act. In fact, throughout their career they have remained one of the most exciting live acts ever. PUT JUDAS PRIEST IN THE HALL.

Until The Meters and Little Feat get in, I can't even take this seriously. Rage Against The Machine is certainly worthy too, I saw someone mentioned them too.

Well, those are some talented and accomplished musicians. All have paid their dues and have made their impact.

I'll admit that I am not really a big fan of any of them. I think The Cars' first album is amazing, and Elliot Easton crafts incredibly tasty and interesting guitar solos. I've never been that moved to pursue more of their stuff though. I'm kind of the same way with Dire Straits. Mark Knopfler plays gorgeous guitar, and I have Making Movies, a greatest hits, and a live album, but they have not compelled me to pick them up in a while.

The other three are off my radar. I never liked pop metal much, the Moodies are a little too sweet and light for me, and I'm just dumb when it comes to Nina. I've only recently started to check her stuff out, and it is very good.

With many HOF ceremonies, I'm really excited for the performances (Phish covering Genesis) or the choice of presenters to induct the winner (Bruce inducting U2) or the jams at the end (Neil Young with Led Zepp). I am sure there will be some good things this time around, but I'm not envisioning a specific thing that would knock me out. I'm sure Elliot Easton and Mark Knopfler jamming together would be cool, but....
