    Almost? You are giving too much credit. Pure garbage IMHO.

    You may not care for their music but I don't think that takes away from being tallented. If it was so easy, why weren't there more bands following the exact same formula and making the same wild amounts of money? Seems to me if it was so easy, the lure of easy money would have had a strong allure to others to follow the same path.
    I'm not sure a better song came out of the 70s than "Goin' Blind."

    I don't remember that, but there was a Greek place that had "coneys" and our first time there, we ordered three and they brought these footlong dogs out and the "chili" was sauted ground beef on it. Now that weren't chili, as they say somewhere! Can't remember the name of it. When we came back, the older students said, "oh, we meant to warn you Cincinnati guys about that".

    That's the coney I thought I was going to get when I moved to Cincinnati.

    Needless to say, I was disappointed.

    But you already said that Station to Station was the greatest song of all time.... I like that pick myself.

    I ate at the Clock a few months back. While ordering, I made a comment how the pictures of the food in the menu looked like they were taken back in the 70s. Little did I know that the picutres would look better than the food when it arrived. That was the worst meal I've ever eaten.

    The Clock is creepy.

    It's pretty bad. "Reveal" is my favorite of the terrible bunch. "Up" was plain awful.

    This last CD featured a song where Michael Stipe uses proud as a noun. He claims he knows it doesn't make sense, but they left it alone. That's when you know bands have lost it, when they can change parts of speech.

    True, but I don't think that the Van Halen III album is considered Hall worthy. A lot of the Sammy Hagar VH stuff is good material. Same goes for the David Lee Roth VH years. Cherone? Notta. Might be "extreme" thinking to state otherwise!

    Some of the Hagar stuff might be good....but is it hall worhty? At least the DLR years were formative to VH. I was always of the opinion that when Sammy joined the bands they became Night Ranger. For the most part, nothing but pop/rock, nothing I'd say was influential or ground breaking going on there....so why should Sammy get in as part of VH?

    Does it matter? Do rock musicians really aspire to make the Rock and Roll Hall of Lame? I doubt it, other than a possible boast in record sales for having thier names in the news.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

But she was apparently head and shoulders above most other musicians as a performer.

    People are voted into the Hall for varied reasons. That's one reason I kind of like it. Most awards bug me because people are all competing for the same thing (baseball and Oscars are both based on "performance", for example), and yet there's no set criteria: it's still an award of opinion. For the Hall of Fame, at least they're blatant about it being opinion. You can get voted in for any number of things as long as they had an effect on music in some way.
    Yeah, I saw her up at the Agora in Cleveland circa 1978(?) back in my clubbing days. She was good with lots of energy with a passionate following. I thought she was cool in those punk times, hairy armpits, skanky hair and clothes and all. I saw a *lot* of good shows around then and while hers was good, there were a ton of great shows I saw around then and I certainly wouldn't say it stood out as best of all time (which is a whole different topic). It's like the Grateful Dead for me, I just never understood what the big deal was. It's all subjective and JMHO.

    I did like Gilda Radner's version of Patti on SNL.

    That made me laugh out loud. This may be true, but I always liked Night Ranger in a so bad it's good sort of way.

    "Sentimental Street" has to be one of the worst song titles in history, though I like the song.
    It's "When You Close Your Eyes" Part Deux.

    I cannot hear Sister Christen without thinking of Alfred Molina air strumming along.

    Kinda like Van Halen's Dancing The Night Away and one of the few good scenes in Mission To Mars.
