    Is she too folky and not enough rocky? I'd say yes, but no one asked me. They never do!

    That's a serious question?

    You don't like her? You don't think she is a rocker? There are many non-rockers in the Rock and Roll HOF.

    You are right and I don't think any non-rocker belongs there. They are running out of R&R people and it's been diluted so much it doesn't have any cachet anymore.

    Got it. I would agree if Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Bob Dylan weren't already in.

    Do they have a floor, room or wing for one hit wonders? Isn't almost everybody qualified as a rock 'n roller already inducted there?

    They don't Amy. I have visited the museum. There are some very interesting exhibits.

    Yes? No.
    Journey? Seriously?
    Joan Baez? Yes, but that quote about easier to admire than listen to is spot on IMHO.
    And Rodgers v Chic? WTH??? The HOF is making it up as they go.

    Take a look at the list. Where do you go from here? A tough challenge to field a new crop every year. Really look at the list.

    Speaking of Philly, I always wondered why it took so long for Hall and Oates to get in.

    Re: Rock and Roll HOF 2017

    Joan Baez as HOF worthy is a joke...

    Journey I can live with...but not my choice ..

    Yes I can live with but not my choice

    Tupac.,,without a doubt

    Pearl Jam....without a doubt

    ELO for sure..cutting edge music incorporating classical instruments with rock instruments ....still one of the best shows I ve ever been to and for sure one of the best light shows

    Hall amd Oates without a doubt..I still to this day listen to Abandoned luncheonette album regularly .....I saw them totally upstage, as an opening act , a cheesy Leo Sayer gig at the Bottom Line in NYC

    too bad they sold out and went poofy hair MTV pop bullss&&t though for a while...but it paid the bills I m sure

    Oh, I get it. But to keep adding people just for the ceremony is a problem of their own creation.

    It is problem. Not unlike creating an honest discussion about fresh fish or tipping.

    You should interject "mature" and "kind" along with honest. It appears most threads, of late, are riddled with immature, unkind and downright arrogant statements.

    Sorry...I digress....please...carry on!
