Re: “Nashville Rapper Haystak Arrested for Sexual Assault ... Again

I am motivated by the dialogue of this cover, to share. Atsonished by the disloyalty of a Nashville, TN based website who for one displays arrogance with misspelling of Jason Winfree's stage name. It's absolutely amazing to me why someone would be so uneducated and malicious to try exposing an individual who is only facing, allegations. Our justice system isn't perfect and lets not rule out that, especially entertainers, are far too often falsely accused. For a person of this gratitude to be misrepresented & hated on by a publish in his own city...it's a damn shame...but hell, he must be doing something right.

Re: “Your Opinion Is Wrong: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Shockingly Unshocking

Green Day had much more commercial success than the Replacements ever did. Remember, this is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, not a Hall of Merit. I don't think they should go simply by sales statistics but popularity is inevitably going to be important. Enjoy the Hall for what it is or don't worry about it.

The '5' Royales made it in this year, though as an early influence. That is a pleasant surprise. They are one of the best R&B vocal groups ever, though their commercial success was quite limited. That made me happy. I still want to see the MC5, the Shangri-Las and Los Lobos, though.

I don't get it either. I don't see how the Replacements did not make it in but Green Day did? The Replacements had such an influence on so many bands including Green Day themselves. There's multiple interviews with Billie Joe claiming how much he listened to them as a teen and even played with them this past April on stage at Coachella!

I'm not surprised at all. Green Day has been an inevitable first-ballot HoF band since 'American Idiot.' Like 'em or not, they're an iconic band that's had success and relevance over multiple decades, sold 80 million records, proved to be formidable rock stars and (for better or worse) are critically and artistically respected. Combined, these are all things that matter to the HoF.

Until Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett are inducted, the R+R HOF will remain irrelevant to me.

You had one job RnR HOF. ONE JOB! To put NWA in before SRV.

Now all the sweet sweet FB RAEG posts from Blues Hammers, Bloof Lawyers and Patriot MadDads that I have been dreaming about are gone. ALL GONE!!

Re: “Your Opinion Is Wrong: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Shockingly Unshocking

While I like both Bill Withers and Joan Jett, did they really have Hall of Fame careers? Withers is seemingly getting in based on one great song, and maybe the same could be said for Joan. I know I am prejudiced since I hate Green Day, but picking them in their first year of eligibility is a shocker. To steal what I have been reading on many blogs, their only salvation would be if Billie Joe would give his trophy to Paul Westerberg in front of the TV audience.

Re: “Your Opinion Is Wrong: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Shockingly Unshocking

You know what is decidedly un-rock and roll? Having a hall of fame. This is a false institution and my guess is that the people profiting the most from it don't even play music. My hall of fame is in a crate next to my record player, and I inducted the Replacements the first time I heard them twenty some years ago. They're spinning right now!

Re: “Your Opinion Is Wrong: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Shockingly Unshocking

On the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

Perhaps it's personal, those glaring omissions. Or maybe it's simply a matter of us not "getting it". Take, for example, the Canadian band, The Guess Who, with its seemingly interminable string of memory-etching productions - These Eyes, Laughing, Undun, No Time, American Woman, No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature, Share The Land, Hand Me Down World, Bus Rider, Albert Flasher, Rain Dance...; maybe it never rose to the level of musical sophistication, illustriousness, and renown – a degree of musicality worthy of the Hall's recognition. Clearly the Hall’s modus operandi is to exercise extraordinarily nuanced judgment, a level of discernment commensurate with what are notably lofty standards, standards plainly on display in its induction of those musical virtuosos collectively known as Green Day, not to mention innumerable other galactic talents. And The Moody Blues? Well, like The Guess Who, they, too, didn’t pass muster and still reside in the exurbs, despite having generated a laundry list of wildly popular, rock-based melodic gems. Call me a naïve little hayseed, but, given their body of work, the Hall should issue an apology and pay them for the privilege of admitting them. Can it be that the Hall’s "gatekeepers" are, in fact, the ones that don't get it? The answer to that is a resounding “Yes!” if they are using entrance criteria that weigh more heavily on what’s "cool" or palatable to the Hall’s personal tastes, or worse, on the biases or prejudices of those select few…criteria that weigh more heavily on anything that deemphasizes that which matters most: the music we have loved most. It certainly appears that is the case.
