and worth listening to.

In addition to Dr. John, some of the Neville Brothers (Art, Cyril and Ian, I think) have played with them, and Allan Toussaint once upon a time.

Because no one in hip hop actually knows how to play a musical instrument.


This is because musical instruments make music. wink

It is a crime that Link Wray and Yes are only now being nominated. Real rock and roll should shun this museum the same way Kieth Richards shuns an MBE.

Wasn't Link Wray just recently released from King Kong's grasp at the top of the Empire State Building? wink

Buggs (a serious question) since you are more versed in Link Wray then most of us, why would you include them? I do know that many others were inspired by him but not much more.

Not Buggs, but I would suggest that without Link Wray, you wouldn't have had Dick Dale, or possibly even surf rock at all. You might not have had groups like Stray Cats. He was a seminal influence on that over-driven, single-line melodic style. Just my opinion.

Exactly right, Mr. S! I would also add the Kinks to that list. So many people don't know it, but Link was as influential to his generation of guitarists as Hendrix was to his. You have probably heard Link's. "Rumble," but never knew it was by him or recorded in the '50s.

IN THE 1950s! Think about it.

Oh wait...Hendrix, I can relate to too.

I'm kind of annoyed that Chic and NWA are on that list, and some of the others I'm just annoyed that it tooke them so long to get there.

There are so many deserving individuals and groups not in this hall of shame. Some of the current nominees only add to the disgust.

bleh.....

Will the TSA let Cat Stevens into the country to get his award this time?

I think it's a great list this year. I'm going to go home and get out my Kiss Alive record.

And - the E Street Band will be given the Award for Musical Excellence and Beatles manager Brian Epstein and original Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldgham will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers.

I also think it's a good list. Kinda hard to believe Nirvana started 25 years ago. Time flies....
