KittyDuran agrees w/The Cure snub. She's OK with the others getting the snub however knowing that more than a few were more pop than rock and also that she's has more of an emotional ties with many, i.e., The Monkees and Duran Duran (D2 was not on that list and I think they qualify). KD will also mention another reason for some of the snubs... Three words "Rolling Stone Magazine". Don't know if their influence is still there but it was early on if KD remembers correctly. So if certain artists were "whipping boys" of RS then sorry, no HOF for you!
