Hall of Fame Ceremonies – Why I Always Watch!

Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode Inducted into Rock Hall of Fame

It’s been a weird year, but even a virus could not stop the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame from celebrating music legends. In a taped special airing on HBO, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame saw the inductions of Nine Inch Nails, the Doobie Brothers, T-Rex, and Depeche Mode. Other inductees included singer Whitney Houston and rapper Notorious B.I.G. Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, and Gwen Stefani also made appearances during the special.

I watched the HBO special presentation over the weekend.  I look forward to it every year!  And I’ll tell you this:  It’s always better than you think it’s going to be!  I talk to Eagle listeners who think maybe this artist or that band don’t deserve to be inducted.  But the HBO telecast is ALWAYS entertaining!  Even this year’s somewhat anemic version without the ‘Jam Sessions’ was really fun to watch.  I recommend it highly. It’s awesome to see our favorite artists, and it’s a learning experience to hear from some of the folks who might be outside our ‘bubble’. I loved learning about Biggie Smalls this year!  And the Irving Azoff and Jon Landau inductions were a hoot! It’s fun to know a little bit more about the giants of artist management.

Who do you think should go into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next?
Do you think artists outside of the rock genre should be inducted?
