Remember when we discussed this year’s sorry bunch of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Well, the Class of 2008 has been announced.
To be inducted into the Rock Hall in March are:
Madonna. John Mellencamp. Leonard Cohen. The Ventures. The Dave Clark Five.
Not making the cut were Chic, Donna Summer, Afrika Bambaataa and the Beastie Boys.
Wait, y’all... don’t light up yer Molotov cocktails just yet. Philly-soul architects Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff were admitted in the non-performer category. (You mean they wasn’t already in? That’s a buncha buuullshit!)
Also, blues harpist Little Walter was let in as a “sideman.”
