Rock Hall names nominees for '07 The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame released nine nominees for potential 2007 induction, which is always good for a spot of controversy. The names: Chic, the Dave Clark Five, Grandmaster (spelled "Grandmaser" in the release) Flash & the Furious Five, R.E.M., The Ronettes, Patti Smith, The Stooges, Joe Tex, and Van Halen.
I can see Grandmaster Flas, REM, Dave Clark Five and Patti Smith making it with ease. Van Halen SHOULD, but who knows. ROCK bands are not treated with much respect by the HOF.
For example, they didn't play my favourite song (High and Dry) when I saw them back in 1997. I have now seen them four times since `97, and never have they played High and Dry. I have no idea why, but I`m not sure when they last played it..
