And the nominations go to:
Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five
Dave Clark Five
Which of these will make it in, and which will be left out in the cold? Does anyone even care anymore? The only ones worthy of induction are the fellas in R.E.M. (yes, even Bill Berry) and Patti Smith. Van Halen doesn't seem like they've been around long enough, and I'm not sure that their music has had as much impact on the music scene as other bands' (although Eddie's guitar skills are extraordinary).
Sorry, KISS - denied! Again! Maybe if you had kept your makeup on the whole time, instead of taking it off for a while, you'd be rocking Cleveland right now as well as Detroit.
