Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
« on: December 08, 2011, 07:50:41 pm »

Well, with Guns 'N Roses leading the way into the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame class, it's now countdown time for who will and will not show up to accept the honor of enshrinement. For GNR fans like myself, this is a very intriguing bit drama that's about to unfold. Axl Rose has reconnected with both Duff Mckagen and Izzy Stradlin, but is still on the outs with Slash.

My guess is that the original lineup including Steven Adler along with replacement drummer Matt Sorum will be there. And I'm pretty sure that Axl will try to push the new version of GNR as the band that he wants accepting along with him. If that is the case, those new guys absolutely better not get up on stage and accept the award as if they had a hand in creating the monster masterpiece that is Appetite For Destruction. Hey, stranger things have happened.

But then again, Axl could pull off the biggest surprise ever by reuniting with the original guys for the customary HOF performance and THIS is why everyone will be following from here on out as it leads up to induction day.

The Hall Of Shame is irrelevant to me. I could care less about that so-called institution. This is all about GNR getting back together for one performance and if this is the only way to make it happen, then so be it.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Would you appreciate it even if you knew it was an empty performance?

They may get up and play, but behind each breath, say **** you and the Harley that you rode on.

I think about the Van Halen episode years ago. Yea, it was great to see them up there, but it was all fake.

If they performed together, I don't think it would be fake in anyway. Axl , Slash and the rest of the gang wouldn't do it for ratings or for the board or even for the fans. They would only do it if they had mended fences which then opens up the possibility of them getting back together on a larger scale. See what is happening here? Just the simple fact of them getting into the HOF has got me talking like this.

As for Van Halen, they never performed. I get that you're referring to Sammy and Mike. Ironically enough it was Velvet Revolver with Slash that had to fill in because David Lee Roth was b*tching and moaning about what songs they were going to play.

Kiss on Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: ‘We’ll Just Buy It and Fire Everybody’

Quote



Ted Nugent once said he wanted to buy Muzak for $10 million in order to shut it down, since it represented everything “uncool” about music. Now, Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has similar feelings towards the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band has been eligible for induction into the music institution since 1999, but they’ve yet to be voted in. You can bet that Simmons’ feathers are ruffled by their continued exclusion from the HOF.

At Tuesday’s (March 20) press conference in Los Angeles announcing the epic co-headlining tour that Kiss will embark upon with Motley Crue, Simmons addressed the fact that they’ve been dissed by the Hall for 13 years.

“It’s become a joke,” he told Rolling Stone. “We’ve been thinking about it and the answer is simply, ‘We’ll just buy it and fire everybody.’”

Purchase, re-staff and rename it the Kiss Hall of Fame? Sounds like a Kourse of action.

Despite the joke, Simmons changed his tone immediately, saying, “In all seriousness for the fans, for something to be called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is such an insult to Madonna, Blondie and Tone Loc. Who the f— knows what other disco act is in there? It’s an insult to them because they don’t get to be in the ‘Dance Hall of Fame,’ because that’s what they do. They’re legitimate dance, disco artists. They don’t belong in rock and roll.”

While the Demon has a point there, we don’t think Madonna is feeling bad about her election to the Hall, since it is, after all, an honor. And Tone Loc is not a member of the Hall of Fame, actually.

His bandmate Paul Stanley (who was probably actually the one wearing feathers during the conversation) concurred, saying, “The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has reached a point where they’re really scrounging and scratching to find someone left that they consider viable.” He continued, “With all due respect, when you get to Patti Smith you’re about two steps away from Pete Seeger.”

We think that Gene, Paul and Kiss have a legitimate gripe. But it does sound a bit like sour grapes. They won’t be the Susan Lucci of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame forever. We are confident they will eventually get in and it’ll have been worth the wait, boys.

there was a bass player who was a demon...and Gene-O was his name-O


:)

I won't hop on Eddy Trunks band wagon and spit hate at the RARHOF.....it's like any award...they are all rigged and only address a certain clique.

if anything Trunk should create the Rock Legends Shrine....and be done with it.

he's a jack ass though...so don't expect him to do anything but complain.

Sharon Osbourne would actually get the thing done and made...and I wouldn't be surprised if her, or someone like Gene Simmons (and Paul of course) some day create a REAL alternative.
and you'll say you read it here first.

As much as she annoys me, she probably would get it done and I would applaud her for it. First inductee of course would be Ozzy and I wouldn't object to that.

As for the upcoming HOF ceremony, I hope Slash get's up there and addresses the peeps in attendance and calls them out much in the way James Hetfield did. A lot of good that did, huh?
