New Rock Hall Nominees

The nominations for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2013 are in. This year's hopefuls are Albert King, Chic, Deep Purple, Donna Summer, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Kraftwerk, the Marvelettes, the Meters, N.W.A., the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Procol Harum, Public Enemy, Randy Newman and Rush.The top vote-getters will be inducted on April 18th, 2013 at the Nokia Theater L.A. live in Los Angeles.

In a new twist, fans will have a say about who gets into the Rock Hall, by voting on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame website, now through December 5th. The top five artists chosen by fans will count as a ballot and will be tabulated along with the other votes.

I really don't have any problems with the choices this time around, but the ones I'm most enthusiastic about are Albert King and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.  I know Rush fans have been clamoring to get the Canadian band included in the Rock Hall, so I hope they get in. 

Donna Summer has been a nominee for a long time, and will probably make it in this year. It's sad she didn't get the honor when she was alive to accept it.
And as usual..I have to complain about certain artists which have been snubbed. I'd like to see Stevie Ray Vaughan, Al Kooper, Gram Parsons, and yes, even the Monkees get their due in Cleveland.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
