I am a huge Beatles fan, but this made me laugh:

Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is being given a special award for musical excellence. He anchored the Beatles' sound and had a productive solo career, even beating his former mates to the top of the charts. He continues to record and tour with a revolving All-Starr Band. The Beatles are already in the hall, as are John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison as solo artists.

I guess they felt his solo career was not worthy enough to get him inducted ( I happen to disagree, even if I am not a major fan) so they are throwing him a bone, with musical excellence award, yea whatever!

It's like the Simpsons episode where Homer was given the meaningless "First Annual Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence."

Even Pete Best laughed at that one. Razz

Horray for Joan Jett.

I did find it odd that they called The Runaways a punk band. What?

Still no Deep Purple. Still no Judas Priest. Oh well. It's not like I am ever going to visit the place anyhow.

Ringo had a LOT of fun good solo lps - I can attest to this -
Not anywhere like Paul McCartney or John - or George's material -
Ringo had plenty of entertaining music - even with that Tom Petty/Bob Dylan thing
Anyways - I'm happy for him - I love at the 1:02 mark - his lyric -

Green Day's inclusion seems like it came outta left field, doesn't it? Did they get included just so there would be a live band to play? Razz

Nice to see Joan get the nod though. She's earned it.

Green Day has made the industry squillions of dollars so in their way they are the most deserving of an industry circle jerk.Given their roots it seems symbolic (not to mention funny)

I've always considered them a punk band. Not that it really matters, whatever you want to call their genre, as they ruled. But that's how they come across to me.

But like a dude once said, it's still rock n' roll to me.

Not really, no. Most of what was mentioned was true for many months ago, but I've shared plenty of good music on here. Most of the posts in my Liege Lord thread consist of exchanges between two other members over nonsense.

Arguments break out quite often on this forum, regardless of my presence.

I have nothing against Green Day or any other artist that have been nominated. But to pass over Deep Purple once again, is just a joke.

The Metallica and Rush guys are major fans, and they don't get it

I can't remember how much the vote counts towards the actual induction, but hopefully the fan vote is a reflection of who is inducted this year. It is sad to see Cheap Trick a distant 7th...

The top 5 vote getters (and Cheap Trick) on the list should get in (or should have already been inducted). The rest, I'm not so sure. I'm sure they have their merits to the hall but to me,there are some real head scratchers there.

I like Janet Jackson and grew up on The Spinners, because of my father, but there is no way either of these two deserve to get in before the top 5 or Cheap Trick on this list. I can't believe the Doobie Brothers, Judas Priest, Journey, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Scorpions, Def Leppard and Pat Benatar haven't even been on a list.

Well, at least Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Steve Miller and Chicago are finally in. I have nothing against NWA, but The Doobie Brothers, Yes, UFO, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Def Leppard, Pat Benatar, The Cars, Journey, Foreigner, DIO and now we can start talking about Rainbow aren't in. At least this is one of the better years for those getting in the Hall.
