The 2018 RNR Hall Of Fame Nominees will be announced soon!


Rock & roll is not an instrument; rock & roll is not even a style of music. Rock & roll is a spirit. … It's been going since the blues, jazz, bebop, soul, R&B, rock & roll, heavy metal, punk rock and, yes, hip-hop. And what connects us all is that spirit. …Rock & roll is not conforming to the people who came before you, but creating your own path in music and in life.


Ice Cube, during N.W.A.'s 2016 Rock Hall induction acceptance speech

I am currently sitting in the basement of my mother and sister's home in Denver, watching Cheap Trick on stage. Those old farts still know how to rock and roll.

The Zombies.
Well, I had not thought of them for 50 years, or so.
There’s probably a reason for that ; -)

Should already be in:

J. Geils Band
Dire Straits
The Meters

A strong case to be in:

The Moody Blues (not much of a fan, but they have an impressive body of work)
The Cars (not a very large body of work)
The Zombies (ditto)
Judas Priest

Should never, never be in:

Bon Jovi

The MC5 deserves to be in the HOF about ten bazillion more times than Bon Jovi. And I am not that much of an MC5 fan. But I have a pathological hatred of 80s hair bands.
