Just announced: There are 12 nominees up for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

They are: ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, KISS, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chantels, The Hollies, and The Stooges

Nominations for Chantels, Darlene Love en LL Cool J surprises me very much...

Well, another disappointing field of nominees. I'll vote for the Hollies and KISS. Laura Nyro? LL Cool J? Darlene Love?(according to Wikipedia she had only 3 top 20 singles). I guess a case could be made for ABBA (tons of hits), the Stooges, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (both influential bands). I despise Genesis (both with and without Peter Gabriel) so I couldn't vote for them no matter what. Donna Summer is as close to Rock and Roll as Tony Bennett. The Chantels? Who the hell are they? Again, wikipedia says they released 8 singles, with 2 making the top 20. Geez, the Raspberries had as many hits. And so did E.C. If you want influential girl groups, how 'bout the Go-Go's. They were one of the first that played their own instruments and wrote their own songs. For that matter, where's the Bangles? And I do think KISS should be in, but if they make it, so should Alice Cooper. IMHO, musically A.C. (the band) was a lot better; and they were first. Someone ought to start up a real Rock and Roll HOF to replace the fraud that this one has turned out to be.
