Rock Hall Class of 2008 Reactions

The current issue of Rolling Stone has the reaction from the 2008 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class about their induction:
  • Madonna: "I was fortunate to have inducted my idol, David Bowie, so to be included alongside him is an honor."
  • John Mellencamp: "I don't really need verification, but this certainly does do that. After thirty-three years, it's nice."
  • Leonard Cohen: No comment.
  • The Dave Clark Five [Dave Clark]: "It would have been nice to have gotten in around the time the Beatles did, but it's wonderful now."
  • The Ventures [Don Wilson]: "It's a long time coming. For years it's bothered me that we haven't gotten in. I hate the word 'posthumously.'"
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation hasn't yet announced who will be the presenters at this year's awards ceremony, and word probably won't come down until a week before the March 10th show. Will Bowie get to return the favor for Madonna? The Lovin' Spoonful for Mellencamp? The O'Jays for Gamble and Huff? Any predictions? Leave them in the comments.
