PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what do you think about the outcome? Were you surprised by any of it or are you outraged at some of the choices? Remember this is what the fans rallied behind, I don’t really think there is a secreted committee doing any of this like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Oh yeah and by the way, have you made your voice count on that roster of nominees? If you haven’t, you better get on it since bands like Judas Priest and The Cars are in the running and amount to two personal favorites of mine. My article about the nominees for that honor can be found on THIS LINK. Closing up let me say “congratulations to all of the winners”. Until next time.
