Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballot announced
When I think of them I get happy...I remember looking in the Gold Circle flyer as a kid and searching out the price for the solo albums...because I loved the artwork.
I collect rock memorabilia- and there was a guy who had the green room sign in sheet for one of MTV live shows in England....I paid more than I should have for the one with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley (and a Def Leppard one post Steve Clark)....and I mounted this huge page with the cover art from the solo records...
They are everywhere in my childhood- from my older cousins, to my youngest years, through high school and a little beyond.
LOVE them...it just always seems we have to qualify them, and that alone gives me pause for the hall of fame....but...if they are that much a part of people...then why not?
They aren't Dylan- but I don't know that you need to be. And if they let Alice Cooper in....Christ, their catalog is every bit of his....and more.
