Don’t get me going about the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame/Shame. They made the announcement of the inductees this week. How does Green Day get in before Cheap Trick, Yes, Judas Priest and Deep Purple? Deep Purple was nominated and not inducted??? I’m not saying Green Day doesn’t belong, well maybe I am. But so many others should be in there before them. But Ringo Starr getting inducted, he was a Beatle and he was inducted as one, his solo career did squat, so why is he being inducted as a solo artist? Okay, rant over. It’s so sad that real rock artists/bands get ignored. Next they will induct, Justin Bieber!
