i hope that bands who only had the opportunity to release two albums and that weren't very popular in the states are biased against, cos stone roses we actually really good

Too short lived and completely unknown to 99% of people in the states. No way. Now if Second Coming didn't bomb...

Shup jeff if these guys dont get in it proves the States poor taste and the absurdity of this 'rocknroll' hall of fame(i mean snoop dogg for fucks sake!)

There will never be a musical "Hall of Fame" that isn't total shit. There's just too much going on and too few useful statistics to make an accurate measurement. Combine that with the necessity to appease people so you can sell them tickets and what do you get?

By the way, William, your writing that comment here specifically gives me an impression that you would consider the Stone Roses for induction, if only a small one.
Posted by liam on Friday, 12.7.07 @ 13:27pm
Yeah, sure, but the real reason I commented was in response to the comment directly above.

What did you think of The Stone Roses and MBV, Shawn?
Posted by Liam on Monday, 04.14.08 @ 14:06pm
I was surprised to find that I actually found MBV fascinating and was indifferent about Stone Roses.

You've got to remember that when The Stone Roses came about, the British guitar music scene wasn't exactly at a high point. We did have some great shoe-gaze bands, but they had neither the confidence nor the accessibility-in-sound to garner much more than a large cult following. That one album helped Britpop by giving Blur, Oasis, Suede et al. a platform to stand on.

Ha! Glad you've given me a fortnight - that's a lot of homework, but I have been curious about Echo &the Bunnymen & Cocteau Twins since seeing you rave about them a dozen times now.
Posted by shawn on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 09:04am
Bummed is alot tighter than Pills n' Thrills, as there's a much heavier post-punk influence on it; still contains the insane dance beats and melodies. Alot of people I know actually say that Bummed is superior to Pills n' Thrills, and atm I'm with 'em!
Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 10:20am
I am enthused and will get on this, Liam!
Posted by shawn on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 10:42am
I'm sure that you'll enjoy The Smiths, too, since Blur, Oasis, Supergrass and Happy Mondays took influence from them, but alot of people find Morrissey's singing and lyrics a bit obnoxious and abrasive.
Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 11:45am
Basically, Morrissey will either seal or break the deal for you. I, for one, find his lyrics thought-provoking, witty, tongue-in-cheek, cunning, moody, and beautiful, but alot of people I know don't.
Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 11:53am
I actually saw The Smiths in concert at a very small venue back in 1986 or 87 and remember liking them. They were constantly being played too in the Tower Records store I worked in at the time (along with The Smithereens, Jane's Addiction, The Cult, Crowded House, Beastie Boys, The Cure, XTC and Paul Simon's 'Graceland'; also remember something very odd called Skinny Puppy back then)
Posted by shawn on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 12:41pm
Ever hear 'The Killing Moon' or 'Lips Like Sugar' by Echo and The Bunnymen? Those get alot of indie radio airplay over here.
Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 12:59pm
Lips Like Sugar and The Killing Moon actually get played on Classic Rock radio stations in NY.
Posted by Dameon on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 14:07pm
My favorite XTC songs are Cross Wires, This Is Pop?, Generals and Majors, Making Plans For Nigel, Runaways and Another Satellite, and my favourite album is Drums and Wires.
Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 04.15.08 @ 14:31pm
I won't vote on this one but I'm leaning "No".
Posted by Jonas on Tuesday, 12.16.08 @ 03:46am
I might be moving back to the U.K. this summer; if I do, it should be easier to get my hands on the first album and thus get the full feel for them. With that said, I've heard a couple of tracks that are quite good, and they were one of the major forces at the Hacienda, and might've been a vital part of (possibly the beginning of) Madchester (can you clarify this, Liam?) Hearing Noel Gallagher say that without them there wouldnt've been Oasis was also big, as I can't imagine life without Oasis. I'm not going to make a decision yet but I'm leaning "Yes." Probably won't happen though.

if the hall of fame has the slightest trace of integrity, then the roses are getting in.
Posted by ryan on Sunday, 08.1.10 @ 20:02pm
I agree with Ryan but it another year at the earliest.. I would not be surprised with in the next 5 years or so ..
Posted by mrxyz on Sunday, 08.1.10 @ 20:37pm
The definitive Madchester band, influenced pretty much every Britpop band in some way. The first album is universally regarded as a classic. Not a lot of material, but of what there was it was very innovative. Also, one of Oasis biggest influences.
Posted by Eric on Tuesday, 08.24.10 @ 23:48pm
All right, so the first album is overhyped in my mind (um, NME? I don't even think it's the greatest British debut album of all time) but on the whole it is a classic. Just like the one Sex Pistols album changed music and was enough to get them inducted, the one classic Stone Roses album changed music (though not as much as the Pistols.) I say "induct" but after others (The Buzzcocks, The Smiths, Happy Mondays, New Order, Joy Division and some others. Not to mention snubs outside of British Alt.) I hope all of the above get in but I don't expect any of them too.
Posted by Sam on Friday, 10.8.10 @ 03:39am
Sadly, no they wont, 1 album (although an all time great album) will not land them in the hall of fame. if only silvertone would of released them from their contract..
Posted by Rose Bud on Wednesday, 11.3.10 @ 13:24pm
Or if only Gareth Evans (WANKER!) had allowed them to sign to Rough Trade instead. If only they'd known more about the business, and thus known not to sign such an oppressive contract. Of if only they'd released "Second Coming" sooner (like a year before they did; Madchester was dying regardless, but then they would've had it out before the changing tastes fully came about.) As it is, they didn't put it out until '94, by which time Britpop had come along and not very many people paid attention to it; if they'd put it out in '92 or '93 it may have done better. There's a bunch of things involved in one of these "what might've been" situations.

Here's what I was referring to: Mani's the only member in this doc. but I reccomend it if you want to know a brief history of the Roses plus a mostly accurate telling of how it all went wrong. Here you are, you can make up your own mind:

As to the rumours that Slash almost joined, he answered that question for the Guardian:
