I wonder how the lives of the inductees have improved since making it into the R&R HoF. One can only imagine.

FoolofaTook 10-09-2018 07:32 PM

No. One can also not imagine.

First appearance for Roxy Music. Unbelievable... :noway:

Rock Hall of Fame: Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Rage Lead Nominees
Devo, Janet Jackson, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, Roxy Music and Todd Rundgren among 15 possible inductees


Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks and Radiohead lead this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

The nominations for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 are in, and the list includes Radiohead, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Rage Against the Machine, the Cure, Devo, Janet Jackson, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, Roxy Music, Todd Rundgren, John Prine, MC5, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and the Zombies. The top vote-getters will be announced in December and inducted March 29th, 2019 at a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. HBO will broadcast the event later next year.

To be eligible for this year’s ballot, each nominee’s first single or album had to released in 1993 or earlier. Several of the nominees have appeared on previous ballots, but this is first appearance for Def Leppard, Devo, Prine, Roxy Music, Nicks and Rundgren. Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine both made their debut appearance last year in their first period of eligibility. This is the fifth appearance for Kraftwerk and LL Cool J, the fourth for the Zombies, the third for Janet Jackson and Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and the second for the Cure.

A voting pool of more than 1,000 artists, historians, journalists and members of the music industry will select the new class, and once again fans will have a chance to be a part of the process. They can vote on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s website or visit the museum in Cleveland and make a selection at an interactive kiosk.

As in recent years, the Hall of Fame has announced the individual members of each band that will be inducted. The current lineup of Def Leppard is listed along with the late Steve Clark and original guitarist Pete Willis.

The classic Roxy Music lineup of Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, Eddie Jobson and Paul Thompson made the cut, though none of their many bassists did. Roxy hasn’t played with Brian Eno since he left in 1973, which could lead to a historic reunion should the band get inducted.

The core Kraftwerk lineup of Karl Bartos, Wolfgang Flür, Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider are listed, though at this point only Hütter remains in the group, setting up another possible reunion at the ceremony.

Many musicians have come and gone through the Cure over the years, but only Robert Smith, Porl Thompson, Perry Bamonte, Michael Dempsey, Simon Gallup, Lol Tolhurst, Boris Williams, Jason Cooper, Roger O’Donnell got the nod.

Rufus featuring Chaka Khan has been largely inactive since their slip in 1983. The Hall of Fame will induct Dennis Belfield, Al Ciner, Andre Fischer, Chaka Khan, Tony Maiden, Nate Morgan, Kevin Murphy, Ron Stockert, Bobby Watson should they receive enough votes.

Radiohead has had the same lineup since their formation in 1985, so it’s no great shock that Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O’Brien and Philip Selway all made the list. The big question is whether or not they’ll show up should they make it in. Last year, they booked a South American show on the evening of the induction ceremony before they learned they didn’t make the cut. Speaking to Rolling Stone last year, bassist Colin Greenwood said he wasn’t sure if his bandmates would attend a Hall of Fame ceremony. “It might be me just doing bass versions of everything like, ‘Come on, you know this one!’” he said. “I’d have to play the bass part to ‘Creep’ five times.”

def leppard and radiohead lol

Getting into the HoF is the only reason Billy keeps going imho. I bet right now behind the scenes he's saying things like "WE JUST SOLD OUT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!?!?"

T&T 10-09-2018 11:30 PM

why does anyone care about the HoF?

Funbags 10-09-2018 11:32 PM

Actually, I wonder if he thinks D'arcy ruined his chances this year? "They want a positive, marketable image on stage, and it doesn't look good when an original member doesn't show up! AAUUGH!!"

Gooch 10-09-2018 11:34 PM

Criteria inclu des influence and significance to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll. I know we are being partial and biased, but I think they contributed more than RATM or def leppard at least on par with them,. Imho

Deafradio could be a band name.

I was going to go with Defradio, but that looks like an Italian family name.

The real "Rock n Roll" hall of fame comes in the form of documentaries that are made decades later that attempt to explain what happened with music in a given decade. Like I need to see some documentaries on the 60's to put it all together, because all I really know is "the Beatles killed everybody, the end."

So the question is, can you tell the story of the 90's without ever mentioning Smashing Pumpkins, and I dare say yes, you can, because even though there were monster band in '96, I don't know that they really "influenced" the sound that followed. Billy had a whiny voice that nobody was keen to imitate. The Pumkins pretty much retained ownership of the Big Muff 'wall of sound' tone, nobody really copied that, either. In fact, around the end of '96, alt-rock started fading from the radio. Even Billy recognized this, hence he made Adore. I suppose if you made a documentary about music dying, you could make a stronger case that the Smashing Pumpkins helped kill alt-rock, somehow.

Not sure if joking

Rooting for Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Kraftwerk and Roxy Music!

But honestly it'd be hilarious if Radiohead got inducted bc it would piss off Belly.

our boy clay tuckett always delivers, SOME BULLSHIT, that ONE WOMAN on the list.

I saw some stray internet comment incredulous that Kraftwerk were in the HoF. It wasn't some oldie yelling at the clouds about "real music" either. This person did NOT like Kraftwerk and I was just surprised someone had a real negative opinion on them.
Maybe I'm too young but I just always thought they were under the radar enough that your average person wouldn't even have an opinion about them.

ninsp 10-10-2018 10:18 AM

I can’t believe Roxy isn’t in the HoF yet. They pretty much birthed glam but also art rock. And Bryan Ferry fucked everybody in the world. I mean seriously.

Cool As Ice Cream 10-10-2018 10:19 AM

Zer0 Hour 10-10-2018 10:44 AM

I've always kinda found the HoF a little silly, because every year, when I hear that a certain band is a finalist, I'm always like, "Wait, why the hell weren't they in already?" It feels like certain musicians should just be grandfathered in.

Anyway, I don't give a shit that SP didn't make the list but I truly hope Billy smashed some instruments backstage when he heard the news.
