HoF Induction Ceremony

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017 induction ceremony was held this past Friday night (click here.)  I hate to sound like an old fart but the only inductee that really moved me in this year's group was Pearl Jam.  The others are just so so imho. 

Journey, Rush and ELO were all ok as inductees but Joan Baez and Tupac were NOT rock and rollers.  As one of the commentators noted - it seems that the Hall of Fame Induction committee seeks to avoid criticism in its PC selections of one female and one rapper each year regardless of whether or not they truly belong in the HoF. 

Little know fact - Pearl Jam's biggest hit song Last Kiss was one that they didn't make any money off of because it was part of a benefit for Kosovar Relief Fund (click here.)

(Guilty pleasure confession time though, I do own Journey's Greatest Hits' CD.)
