2012 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee!

Actually never been too impressed with Seger's songs either. His best known are probably Turn the Page and Old Time Rock and Roll, which were a fixture of fossilized FM radio which is now dead and buried. But it seems that the songwriter's hall of fame may be too traditionalist.

Just to follow up by what I man by traditionalist, none of the following are inducted in the songwriters hall of fame: Lou Reed, David Byrne, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, Chrissy Hynde, anyone of the Ramones, anyone of the Clash or Sex Pistols, Elvs Costello or even Tom Petty. It seems a bit fogeyish, but take what you can get.

In my opinion the ramones can stay well away from such an establishment. the rest you mentioned maybe apart from debbie (don't know about hynde and petty, haven't heard much from them) but the ramones always struck me as horribly overated especially on this site. (there is no way in hell they are among the top 20 bands to ever exist)

Have the Ramones been overrated? The music press did elevate them to mythic levels during the early 90s and I'm personally more impressed with other bands from that era. I have said more than once that I thought their music was a bit two-dimensional. But all that said they had some excellent songs, and Dee Dee Ramone has always impressed me as a lyricist, even later on with songs like Poison Heart or Baby Doll.

Still not clear who gave the induction speech for Bob Seger at the 2012 Songwriters Hall of Fame. Dave Grohl was a no-show.

Valerie Simpson gave the induction speech for Bob Seger at the 2012 Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Send Bob Seger a tweet. Tell him to tell the Rock Hall to induct the Silver Bullet Band.

Why did it take so long for Bob Seger to be inducted?
