    I have that on DVD and CD. It was an awesome show. You were really lucky to see that.

    I saw them in Cinci at the Taft theatre last summer. Great show, place wasn't 1/3 full, if that.

    Some interesting trivia about Donovan. His daughter is Ione Skye who played in the 80's classic Say Anything with John Cusak.

    Deep Purple and Yes should already be in there...and not because I even really like them but KISS should be as well...not for who they are now but for what they were. KISS set the benchmark for arena rock. Plus I really like Gene's kids. Heck just induct his family.

    You might very well change your mind if you listen to the Alice Cooper album "A Fistful of Alice". It was recorded live in 1996 at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo club in San Lucus, Mexico. The sound (and energy level) is absolutely amazing, as well as an allstar lineup:

    Alice Cooper – lead vocals
    Reb Beach – guitar, backing vocals
    Ryan Roxie – guitar
    Paul Taylor – keyboards, guitar
    Todd Jensen – bass, backing vocals
    Jimmy DeGrasso – drums
    Rob Zombie – guest vocals on Elected and Feed My Frankenstein
    Slash – lead guitar on Lost in America, Only Women Bleed and Elected
    Sammy Hagar – lead guitar on School’s Out

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its inductees for 2014 today. Hall & Oates, Nirvana and KISS are among the legendary performers that will be inducted this year.

    Held at the Brooklyn Barclays Center in New York, the 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 10, and, for the first time in NY, will be open to the public.

    Additional performers being inducted into Rock Hall include Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens
    In the cases of Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens, it's about time. IMO, though, Peter Gabriel, as a solo artist, should not be in ahead of Deep Purple.

    Surprises me a bit. I didn't think KISS would go in so easily. And no Replacements.

    Hall and Oates are getting killed on some parts of the web right now but they were great.

    Good point about Deep Purple. Gabriel is deserving, just seems odd he gets two
    inductions and DP isn't even in.

    Hey, I do! I have several of their songs on my current playlist.

    Always loved Deep Purple, too, with their deep, foggy music. Maybe next year, and maybe ELO will eventually score a nomination.

    Personally, I'm particularly happy about Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, and Cat Stevens. Tea for the Tillerman was a great, trippy album that I've always weirdly associated with The White Album.

    Agreed. On both parts. I know that Hall & Oates aren't to some people's tastes...but the sheer number of hits they had back in the 80's was astonishing.

    And not having ELO in there...that's just stupid. Personally, I think the R&R hall of fame should be exactly that. Rock and Roll. Put rappers in a different venue. NWA and the Beatles should NEVER be in the same building. EVER!
    2014 predictions:

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Im going to repeat how thrilled I am with Hall and Oates getting in.

    Daryl's voice is a treasure. Never sang a refrain the same way twice.

    I can buy this. Rap and rock are two different animals.
