Eddie Trunk recaps the Kiss Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction 4.14.2014

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVPuz6lAiUo&index=9&list=PLp2e7UfInEgmB-5r4rtQOEsq-H-mNmQhk


I'm just NOW getting around to listening to this and it was fun to hear in spite of what I think of Eddie Trunk these days. My biggest gripe is that he always finds something to complain about and this is no exception here. It's actually why I love this radio segment. Eddie goes off on the Hall of Fame in nuclear mode that you think he is going to have a heart attack. It's nothing new, but it was fun to hear him go on and on about his perspective of the show having attended it personally. One thing I didn't like about the radio segment was that the majority of the callers couldn't put two words together in their "questions" to Eddie. Do they not screen these people before allowing them on air?

The RARHOF Show airs tonight on HBO. I don't have the channel, so I'm gonna have to have my eyes peeled on YouTube. Hopefully someone uploads the entire show.

What the f*ck! F*ck this douche nozzle Peresman. He's really reaching by calling Paul a 'Racist'. Sure, Paul did in fact say that Rappers don't belong, but lets keep it real, EVERYONE for the past 15 years has been saying it. Whenever a band like RUN DMC gets in over bands like Rush, KISS, Guns N Roses or any other band that took years to get in, the first thing people say is 'why is such and such in' and the finger always points are rap and hip hop artist. So, if you're gonna call Paul a racist, you might as well say the same about a million other people as well. Dipsh*t!

Almost Borderline Racist... What kind of a comment is that?

That makes no sense. Those 3 words together is baiting.

HBO is playing the hell out of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. 3+ hours is a lot of time to sit in one place. I usually donít like award shows, but I thought Iíd give this a chance.

It was all standard fare as far as I was concerned. Iím sure there was some underground bubbling going on, but that was not apparent in this presentation.

I was thoroughly impressed with Cat Stevens. His acceptance speech was nice and fun, but his performance was just awesome. Iím not a fan per se of Bruce Springsteen, but his portion was watchable. I knew very little of his band and it was cool to see him go through each member. His performance was good as expected.

Tribute to Linda Ronstadt was a sweet/sour event. With Ms. Ronstadt not present, the induction was more like a memorial. One of the greatest rock voices of all time, it would have been nice to hear her again, but with onset of Parkinsonís, she can no longer sing. The academy stepped up and brought in top notch talent to sing some of her biggest hits. Believe it or not, call me impressed. Carrie Underwood, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, sounded fantastic.



Please donít let this sound like Iím crapping on Kiss, but totally underwhelmed. They quietly walk on stageÖ stoned face, quiet and just gave each other pleasant accolades for the formation 40 years prior. I just figured they would be a little more animated or lively. Guess they didnít want to be there? Tom Morello on the other hand was pure energy and pretty fantastic induction of the band.

Peter Gabriel was humble and laid back. I like a lot of his music. He is an odd performer. But his performance at the hall was classic Gabriel and he sounds so good.

I don't have a problem with this... it actually makes sense.

Legendary Rock DJ Alan Freedís Ashes Removed from Rock Hall as Beyonce Exhibit Moves In

Quote
The place of honor reserved for Alan Freedís ashes at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is being taken away, and the legendary DJís surviving family members arenít happy about it.
ABC News Radio reports that Freedís son Lance claims Rock Hall CEO Greg Harris told him Freedís remains need to be removed from the Hall because, as he allegedly put it, ďpeople walk past the exhibit and your dadís ashes and they scratch their heads and canít figure out what this thing is, and weíd like you to come pick up the ashes.Ē The display, part of a larger exhibit paying tribute to Freedís many cultural contributions during the rise of rock Ďní roll, had been in place since 2002.

ďWe didnít have a choice,Ē Lance Freed told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. ďIím more than disappointed. I donít feel itís appropriate, but I donít own the place. After 12 years, we thought this was going to be his final resting place.Ē

In his defense, Harris explained to the paper that his decision was made because ďthe concept of human remains on display for the public is something that museums in general are getting away from,Ē and he vowed that in spite of Freedís beliefs to the contrary, the exhibit honoring his father isnít being moved or altered beyond the removal of the urn containing the ashes, which are set to be replaced with a pair of the senior Freedís microphones. Itís also been noted that this change is taking place as the Rock Hall opens a new display centered around pop icon BeyonceĎs outfits, but Harris argued that itís reflective of the musicís continual evolution: ďRock and roll isnít just about yesterday. It continues to evolve, and we continue to embrace it and refine our operations.Ē

If the Hall would simply play the awesome American Hot Wax movie on a monitor right next to his ashes, it would cut down on all the head scratching. Just sayin'.

Wasn't sure where to post this, but it's classic albums, so maybe here?

Joe Elliott Says Def Leppard Would ĎPolitely Refuseí Rock Hall Induction


Hahaha. Paul Stanley said the same thing for years and then went willingly when his name was called. I would love to see Joe, or anyone for that matter actually say true to their word and tell the Hall to f*ck off when given the choice to do one or the other. My guess is that they will accept. Hell, the actually pretty much gives Joe an "out" by using the "if fans disagree with us" as a way to circumvent his refusal to accept. Come on Joe, stick to the Hall!!

Heartís Ann Wilson Says Hall of Fame Inductees Should ĎBe Graciousí



Clearly a dig at KISS. I just wish that Paul and Gene could have done what Heart did on their night and that was play with the original band. Oh well....
