    "Eddie Van Halen and The Eddie Van Halen Band" -- some drunk guy at The Devil's Backbone Tavern.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Wow. Cool! Maybe they can meet up later with Sean and Yoko after the ceremony.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Kiss is in the Hall of fame for guys who made a lot of money with absolutely no talent. Kiss, Motley Crue, Donald Trump, all charter members. Gene Simmons and Tommy Lee also got elected individually. The HOF is located in Atlantic City, New Jersy.

    They did a song called "Be My Baby". Not a bad little song, you should give it a listen. Brian Wilson says its the greatest song ever written. Go rent a movie called Mean Streets, Scorsese played it over the opening credits and revolutionized the modern movie sound track. Springsteen based the first 10 years of his carreer around it. "Walking in the Rain" is a nice song too.

    Who's Eddie Money?

    Like Dom, I had no idea they booted Michael Anthony.

    VH with DLR was the real Van Halen in my opinion. However, I think they had some nice work with Sammy also. It's just that the DLR songs are more powerfull musical statements in most cases. Panama vs. Right Now for example. Right Now is sorta a catchy tune. Panama knocks you off your feet when played loud.

    But the Van Halen brothers would be better off to hang it up or do some solo work. They are long past being relevant (with current music) and are ballancing on the edge of going from ground breaking rockers to a freak sideshow (what I like to call the Axel Rose effect).

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Nice to see Smith go in there. Warrior was a great song!




    Kidding, kidding. Actually, Horses is a great, great, great listen.

    I, too, have found REM unlistenable since around Automatic For the People. It's really been that long since they've .... oh man, I'm getting old.

    KISS is famous, ergo they should be in the Hall of Fame, IMO. I personally don't think they're any great shakes as musicians, but hey, they had their own comic book and they starred in their own movies as KISS (no, really, my moms has the VCR tapes, i've seen them). You'd be hard-pressed to come up with a reasonable rationale for keeping them out of the Hall.

    Then again, I agree with Mojo Nixon - the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is crap anyway.

    ?
    You're kidding right? The Ronettes were one of the first of many very successful girl groups of the early to mid 60s. Though I don't really believe that they deserve induction. I think they would have gone nowhere were it not for the folks in the Brille Building and Phil Spector. Hell, their studio stuff had additional vocals by people like Darlene Love and Cher but still credited to The Ronettes.

Or do you see everyone actually burying the hatchet and making nice?
    If there's a dollar to be made from burying the hatchet, the Van Halen brothers will bring shovels.

    BTW - my all-time favorite Van Halen song is the title track from "5150" -- a nice little jab at David Lee Roth.

    If anything, Eddie Money should be thanking the Ronettes for his success.

    Why no Alice Cooper in the R'N'R HOF?

    Purely shameful.

    Exactly but that had less to do with The Ronettes than Phil's over the top production. The Ronettes could have been the Shirelles or the Shangri-Las or the Crystals.

    True

    That would have been sad.
