Presenting the 2016 Class for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions. Are you happy with the choices of Deep Purple? Of Cheap Trick? Of Chicago? Of Steve Miller? Of NWA?
PiercingMetal Thoughts: What a rundown of names for this years class huh. At long last we are getting the mighty Deep Purple in the Rock Hall along with Cheap Trick and in my humble opinion these two have rocked my personal world for more years than I care to disclose. Outside of a handful of tunes I never really followed both Chicago or Steve Miller but their sounds were staples in my Classic Rock radio listening over the years and then we have NWA, the lone Rap group who won out over Janet Jackson who was also up for nomination. Now I’ve said this a number of times already before and that is how I really give little credibility to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as anything important in my own love of music. Yeah I am happy that KISS finally made it in there and joined the likes of Van Halen, Sabbath, Rush and many other favorites but outside of that I give a whopping “0” f**ks about it as something I should be impressed by or look to for sage Rock importance. I am still against any and all Rap acts from being included in this and its a constant source of debate with a couple of my friends who I think that the opposing view to rile me more than anything else and feel this place should just rebrand to the “Music Hall Of Fame” once and for all so you can keep putting the rappers in ahead of the likes of Yes, or the eventually hope for Judas Priest and Iron Maiden (not that I think those will happen in my lifetime).
As always your opinions on this are of interest to me so let’s get those comments brewing. I look forward to what you have to say about it.
