About the 2015 Inductees, Dezmond wrote:
  DarinRG: "The voting committee is the problem. It's full of people who used to be marginal critics a long time ago and geezer inductees who don't know who any of the groundbreaking acts who came after the invention of fire are." Right on, DarinRG. I have always felt this was a problem. Look, I love B.B. King. But I can't imagine B.B. really knows The Smiths or Kraftwerk all that well. Yet B.B. is casting a vote each year. So many of these inductees and older, crotchety critics felt lost in the 80's and felt the good old days were behind them. They have little appreciation for the groundbreaking work by The Cure, Replacements, Smiths, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Devo, The Cars, Sonic Youth, Joy Division, New Order, etc. I really think that is the big roadblock here for the 80's in general. It is the voting block.

I don't get why some of you don't feel that Lou Reed deserved a solo induction. Come on. It should have happened a long time ago. Lou's solo work is deeper, more interesting, and I would say even riskier than the relatively shortlived Velvet Underground. Lou was an inspiration for anyone in rock who took risks and ventured off the beaten path.

About the 2015 Inductees, Dezmond wrote:
  Lax,

A couple of things. You said on SRV's induction that "This induction should have occurred when SRV was alive." That would have been impossible as per the Rockhall's 25 years rule.

When you say "What also pleases me is that Joan Jett getting inducted means The Runaways are now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You see, when an individual gets inducted, everything gets included in the catalog; both band and solo alike." You also bring up that argument when justifying Ringo's ridiculous solo induction. What the hell are you talking about? If that was the case, then there would never be a need to induct any person twice. If what you said was true, then Peter Gabriel's induction last year was unnecessary since Genesis was already in. Nonsense.

And finally, "Our collective involvement in putting Bill Withers into the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project, not to mention Withers gaining more votes than anyone else, helped to convince the RRHOF in inducting him the first time nominated." Dp you really think that the Rockhall or its voters even know this site exists, much less are taking cues from our little pet projects. I can see Jann Wenner and Jon Landau trying to decide on their votes. Wenner: "wait Jon, we need to check Future Rock Legends and their Revisited project!" Landau: "Great idea!

  Hello fellow posters!

Normally I would be posting my thoughts on the recent RRHOF class of inductees within 24-48 hours of the announcement. This year, it took me a while longer to comprehend what I would say. It is not easy for me to say this, when considering the last two induction ceremonies were amongst the best in the history of the RRHOF. Also, unlike years before in which I and others would implore the Hall to induct Peter Gabriel (an activity which reached its much deserved reward yet did annoy the general populace on this website); I did not have the same vigor with this crop of inductees and nominees.

Fellow posters, I am a bit disappointed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2015. This probably began in October when the nominees were announced. I was curious for instance if Sting would be inducted on his own not long after receiving a Kennedy Center Honor. For whatever reason, I was not in agreement with the NomCom putting Sting as a nominee this soon after being given arguably a more prestigious award.

I must say that while I really like where the fan vote is going with respect to its influence on whom the newer class of inductees will be each year: it does not give equal importance to all nominees. As we know, N. W. A. and Chic were the bottom two nominees in the fan ballot this year. I feel they should have been the top two nominees on the ballot, yet alone the two important inductees this year. Alas, a perceived bias against hip hop and disco took hold on much of the voters this year. I happen to agree with Digital Dream Door on their concerns in this lack of racial diversity. It is a little better this year, but that is not saying much.

This year 8 new artists and/or groups were inducted. Not one was a non-performer. As I mentioned before, this would have been a prime opportunity to induct an important person like Don Cornelius or Casey Kasem into the Hall. It could have even been a record executive and there would have been no problems. Heck, if the RRHOF wanted to, Chic could have gotten inducted as non-performers and no one would have issued a petition against the decision.

Now, onto the newest inductees. Many of them are well deserved. Yet, at least with one, I am not entirely satisfied of the outcome. Here are m thoughts on the new inductees.

Green Day: Well deserving of their induction. It truly has amazed me how much they have grown and matured in the 20 or so years of their major label life. Although, even when I was an 11 year old kid that must have played Dookie until the CD wore off; I thought there was some fine artistry and lyrics in their works.

Lou Reed: This should have occurred in his lifetime. None the less, I am pleased Reed's life work is being recognized in all fields.

Bill Withers: I believe this is one of the times where we at Future Rock Legends should give ourselves a pat on the back. Our collective involvement in putting Bill Withers into the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project, not to mention Withers gaining more votes than anyone else, helped to convince the RRHOF in inducting him the first time nominated. One of the best storytellers in his time, I think.

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble: This induction should have occurred when SRV was alive. None the less, an induction has finally occurred; it is also pleasing that Vaughan's backing band are also included.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts: About damn time for her to be inducted. Not many know this; yet Joan Jett has been one of the most important trailblazers in all of rock and roll. What also pleases me is that Joan Jett getting inducted means The Runaways are now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You see, when an individual gets inducted, everything gets included in the catalog; both band and solo alike. I will say though that it would be necessary for many of the other Runaways (in particular Lita Ford, Cherie Currie and Sandy West) to also get inducted; either as The Runaways or individually. As well, I think Joan Jett needs to be inducted into the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall Project for the entirety of her life's work. Jett will be on my ballot next year.

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band: Well I hope Jann Wenner is happy now, because I am not that pleased. Now, Butterfield certainly was a much influential artist; yet I should ask those from the time this. Was there ever a time in Paul Butterfield's life where people were clamoring for a new album and/or tour with the same vigor as, for instance, Stevie Ray Vaughan was receiving in his lifetime? Was there a media commotion when Butterfield was in the news in the same way when, for instance, U2 are in the news? Again, Paul Butterfield was a very important artist and should have definitely been inducted in his lifetime. His backing band were exquisite artists in their own right. Yet, I think it would have been a more satisfying and honest process if it were Mike Bloomfield getting inducted on his own accord. We inducted Bloomfield into Revisited/Projected, not Butterfield.

The "5" Royales: This induction should also have been done in the band members' lifetimes. None the less, they are finally inducted.

Ringo Starr: This was an unexpected yet pleasant surprise. I do not have any problems with Starr getting inducted for all of his life's work. In many respects, this is Ringo Starr finally being inducted long after John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison got inducted. I know The Beatles were inducted first in 1988. Yet how I see it: it was only the concept of The Beatles that got inducted, and not entirely the Fab Four themselves. Once John Lennon was posthumously inducted, the induction clocks began again. After Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison (posthumously) got inducted, effectively 3/4ths of The Beatles were fully recognized. With Ringo Starr now inducted, we have come full circle in four artists that were first inducted as a band, and now are in the Hall for the entirety of their lives and works. In a way, The Beatles are truly now inducted into the RRHOF in the way it should be; both individually and collectively. As for Starr on his own; whether it be in music, film or wherever else, Ringo has been a lot more influential than many realize.

Well, those are my thoughts on this new class of inductees. I truly had wanted Nine Inch Nails, N. W. A. and Chic inducted this year. Though that may have to wait another year. I also think the Hall should expand the amount of performer inductees per year to at least 7. In 2016, I can assure you Alice In Chains, Blur and Smashing Pumpkins will get inducted. To have room for only three more would be an insult. Heck, I would expand the inductee list to perhaps 10 if need be. Also, let us hope the NomCom does not go into a trolling mode. If by any chance an act like The J. Geils band get nominated again; I guarantee you all there will be a collective groan heard all around the world. Let us hope the RRHOF does not screw things up after doing a lot better recently.

Peace is attainable; if you want it,

  The problem with DDD and SRV is that his career was cut short right as he was about to break as a mainstream rock star. He lost several of his prime years to his addictions. At the end of his lfe he was right back at the top of his game as one of the greatest guitarists ever. If you were around to hear him, or bother to watch one of his DVDs, maybe the "who cares" person might think differently. If you weren't there, you wouldn't know. SRV accomplished quite a lot in his all too brief career.

  I think it's a shame that so many don't know the true history of rock music or music in general and it's obvious neither do those that have a position of power in these matters. How can I say this because if they did Joan Baez would be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Rock music is a rebels call and no one in the industries history was or is that more than her. Willing to stand alone or united she always stood for what she believe to be right, in the face of ignorance or misguided patriotism, willing to be kicked,spat-on,thrown in jail, or even have bombs dropped on her while recording an album. She took on the beliefs of Gandhi marched with Dr. King and Cesar Chavez and took on so many of the worlds injustices. As person she is my hero dedicating her life to the cause of peace. That's just a small back drop to her music career,for the pure beauty of her voice she should be in the Hall fame and though she did'not write most of the songs she recorded, her interpretations are stellar and you'll be hard press to find anyone that can pick a guitar as well. Yes Rolling Stone magazine almost got it right naming Bob Dylan the second greatest artist of all time but totally blew it on the best Dylan covers of all time leaving Baez off the list. I guess they never heard her perform Forever Young,Blow'n In the Wind,Love Is Just A Four Letter Word and in my humble opinion the greatest love song of all time Sad Eye Lady Of The Lowlands as performed by Miss Baez. Two of her few songs she did pen (Diamonds and Rust) and (Sweet Sir Galahad) place her artistically far above those inducted on popularity,though as often with the passing of time history is rewritten and few remember just how well know she was world wide and though not the voice of a generation she was the backbone or you could say the boots on the ground. So as it goes with a corporate run media nation passing off scum like Ronald Reagan as a hero and erasing a history based on facts, you know like the Nixon tapes,I give the Hall little respect until the halve have the balls of Joan Baez and induct her.

  Look, they announced the inductees. Didn't see a thing about it in the media.

Meh. Green Day sold too many albums to ignore. Joan Jett probably deserved to be inducted for her career work, but individually and not with the Blackhearts. Withers is a just OK. Not outraged that he is inducted, not happy, not anything. Vaughan is another "who cares."

Lou Reed does not deserve to be inducteed as solo artist and is already very well represnted in the R&RHF. So we needed to induct him again but Kraftwerk and the Smiths and Chic cannot get in once? At least it's better than a Sting induction.

The Paul Butterfield Blue's Band? Who??? Someone's pet project. You can induct them every single yaer and no one would care except their handful of fans.

And Ringo Starr? OK.

I was not inspired at all by the nominees and less so by the inductees. You could not even hate the nominees. You knew last year that the Ronstadt nomination was a total joke. Here you don't even have that.
