The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a cool museum but completely an irrelevant institution that is supposed to determine who rocks and who doesn’t has announced the 9 artists that will be considered for induction in 2007. And they are (drumroll please):
The Dave Clark Five
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
Okay fine. Still no Rush this year of course but that is par for the course. A completely ridiculous excercise in my books. Just put on a yearly mega-concert mixing it up like Bill Graham used to do in the old Fillmore days while making it free for one and all. Celebrate rock and roll, don’t institutionalize it!
