About Aaliyah, Tony wrote:
  Aaliyah absolutely deserves to be indicted. Obviously, her case will be special since she died with a 7 yr career. BUT, some research will show her 7 yr career holds ALOT of weight. She accomplished A LOT with only 3 albums, 26 singles, made Billboard history, youngest black female to perform at the Oscars and her post 2001 was predicted to be juggernaut with everything she had planned. And INFLUENCE, Aaliyah has influenced many artists from the current R&B singers, rappers, producers, rock artists and even artists in Japan. Aaliyah was a visionary artist, music excellence who was at her peak when she passed. But what she left, has been able to keep her relevant, honored and respected to this very minute. She even has haters now in 2015. She DEFINITELY deserves it

  Paul K - I'd also like to see 80's Rock Hits selected as next month's genre. In particular, I think that 80's Hair Metal (which I consider to be a big part of this genre) is under-represented in the project. The genre as a whole wasn't great for rock n roll, but I think every major band has at least one legitimate song.

  Bolan was years ahead with ideas. Way ahead of Bowie in many ways. I have worked with both in the US, Bolan in 73 and Bowie in 76. I did lighting. Marc Bolan was taking about using electronic sounds mixing with a rock formation in 73. Everyone in the bar thought he was off his tits. What happen in the 80s???? Give the guy credit people!!!! If you check out a album Bolan's Zip Gun / The Light Of Love USA mostly recorded 74 you can hear the ideas on Bowie's Low album 1977. Bolan is under rated man!!!

  Donnie - I find it interesting that 'Rock Me Amadeus' is the source of ire, when 'Straight Up' is clearly the worst song in that list. ;)

I also don't understand the appeal of 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' - I find that song to be so unbelievably boring & bland, even for a slower song.

  AUGUST

You are right about Alice In Chains. They really were one of the greats. You could feel Layne's power and his pain in the songs. I've never heard anything like Man In The Box before or since. Alice In Chains made so many classic songs...Tough to pick a FAV. Probably 3 of my FAV Sea Of Sorrow, Down In A Hole, Heaven Beside You. I'll add Your Decision to the list. Loved the Sap & Jar Of Flies EPs.

Trying to get Duran Duran nominated this year and Moody Blues. Will make more of a push for Def Leppard and Alice In Chains in 2016. No doubt Alice In Chains will be inducted next 5 years. Pearl Jam like Nirvana will be 1st ballot in 2016-2017. Then, it should be Alice In Chains turn. KING

About Elvis Costello and the Attractions, KING wrote:
  Joseph-I'm surprised Elvis Costello has been inducted as well. The RRHOF loves their singer- songwriters. First ballot like The Pretenders. No doubt Elvis Costello was a wordsmith & had a few good songs. I remember Alison & Veronica getting some airplay but you are right. He didn't have 30 or 40 Top 10 singles. Also, I was shocked The Pretenders & REM were 1st ballots. There seems no rhyme nor reason to RRHOF inductions when Chicago,Def Leppard, Duran Duran, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Moody Blues etc. haven't been inducted. KING

I was hoping to see Yes inducted back in 2014, but now it looks like Yes will receive a nomination and possible induction in 2016, too late for Chris and Peter, but not too late for Jon, Bill, Steve, Alan, Trevor, Rick and Geoff.

My new 2 RRHOF ceremony idea would help the 60's & 70's artists you talked about. Imagine getting two kicks at the can every year. Maybe, the 60's and 70's ballot would have King Crimson, Deep Purple, Kansas, and Journey on it. Others could be moved to the 80's and 90's ballot like The Cars, Styx, Iron Maiden, Foreigner etc.

Let's say they mix all the groups together like they do now. A band like Journey or Foreigner would have 2 chances of nomination. A quality band would really have a chance in my system. KING

Addressing some of your questions. The April & October RRHOF ceremonies perfectly leaves the June-September months for artists summer vacations and tours.

A 2 ceremony RRHOF guarantees one in Cleveland every year plus the rotating one. The two ballots puts less pressure on the RRHOF Nominating Committee. They can move some groups and singers to the October ballot to make it heterogeneous.

I agree the venue might be the toughest. Some stadiums play baseball or football during the season and have concerts and events in off-season. However, cities like NYC, LA, Dallas, Chicago could use several different venues to host the event.

You could even set up a concert of bands to play the show like a tour on stage. I think it would help the economy Cleveland and the cities hosting it. There would be kinks to work out but it would definitely be the place to be that night. KING

About the 2015 Inductees, Enigmaticus wrote:
  KING,

If I understand this correctly, you would like to suggest 2 induction ceremonies per year, once in April and once in October. Then you would like to alternate cities for induction ceremonies?

It is certainly an interesting idea, but the logistics of planning the ceremonies might be the problem. Now, imagine two events, instead.

First of all, you would have to ensure that the venue chosen would be available for such a date, on very short notice, rescheduling may be necessary, plus weather may conditions apply also.

Second, you would have to ensure that the venue would be able to hold the audience whatever size it is. If you induct a large number of popular artists you may need a stadium, instead of an arena.


Third, you would have to make certain that the nominated acts, as well as the inductors were available and not on tour, vacation, or previously committed to some other event.

Fourth, you would have to promote the event through various media. The cost of advertising for just one annual event could be quite costly. Now imagine two events?

Fifth, you have to consider how much you would need to charge for tickets. The bigger the name, the higher the ticket price.

Sixth, for those unable to attend, would you offer the ceremony on pay per view, or stream it on line for a price?

Otherwise, I think that it is a great idea. Especially, the idea of alternating cities.

Your 2015 ballot filled with strong candidates. Alice In Chains would be a great headliner. I hope they get inducted. Love to hear Jerry Cantrell talk about the band & stories about Layne. Most of the bands you nominated will be inducted someday. I think the Deep Purple & NIN the strongest of your nominations. They should make it this cycle. Don't think Nick Drake will be inducted. He died young 26 and only a few albums. He has been cited more and more as influential now and his albums have been rediscovered. Smashing Pumpkins could be 1st ballot. They really have a strong catalog of work. Corigan a musical genius. KING

  FUTURE ROCK LEGENDS FANS

Another reason to like the 2 ceremony system...Say a group like The Cure or Duran Duran or Def Leppard drops a hot double album or 12 song CD in June or July after April ceremony. It might put them over the top when the October nominees are announced. This might make better music from groups on the edge of nomination. They know that this could tip the balance. I know artists and groups have taken shots at the RRHOF for their snubs and omissions but RRHOF induction is the pinnacle for a group and legacy secured. Usually, an induction of a group boosts CD catalog sales of past & recent vintage. My 2 ceremony 12 on each ballot gives a group a better chance at induction. KING

  Another creative idea would have an inducted band choose 1 nominee for the next ballot. For example if Moody Blues was inducted, maybe they would choose Procol Harum or King Crimson. It would ensure a Prog band on the ballot each time or if NWA was inducted, they might choose Eric B. & Rakim or Queen Latifah. In my system,that would leave 8 spots on the ballot. My ballot would have 2 ballots of 12 but you could increase it to 5 guaranteed out of 15 or some other number. The only problems would be if the nominated group wasn't RRHOF worthy. Or say a Prog, Rap, Punk artist wasn't inducted. They might not have guaranteed representation on next ballot. Enig, don't know about ELO documentary but this could be Duran Duran's year for nomination. KING
