Due to some recent inflammatory comments made during an interview published in the New York Times, Rolling Stone Magazine founder andĀ  Rock and Roll Hall of Fame co-founder Jann Wenner has been removed from the Hall's board of directors. Apparantly his comments were deemed racist and misogynistic. I thought it was because of his not nominating Raspberries or Eric Carmen for induction into the Hall.šŸ˜‰

So maybe this ousting will change the tone amongst the Board at the RRHOF?!

"A while back,Ā Eric CarmenĀ said that although theĀ RaspberriesĀ have long been cited as ā€œpower popā€ innovators and have been eligible for induction since 1997, they simply lack the political clout to get into the Rock Hall:Ā ā€œHaving been in the music business now for 35 years, or whatever it is, and having had situations where Iā€™ve bumped into Jann Wenner and some of the powers that be over there, there is so much politics involved in anybody actually getting into the Rock Hall.ā€"
