Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Oldies But Goldies: In 2009 I Went To The Rock ANd Roll Hall Of Fame New York Annex…. Guess What I Thought…

By Iman Lababedi | September 5, 2015

You get the point after five minutes but you’re stuck there touching walls for fifteen minutes and why? Because they are trying to justify $25 for a museum that a medium paced New Yorker could finish in twenty minutes.

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and Alan Freeds Ashes

By Helen Bach | August 8, 2014

First and foremost who is Alan Freed? He is was a DJ, not a Skrillex type dj but a disc jockey who played vinyl albums at a radio station. Its an odd concept in a digital world but thats his schtick. The unique part of Freed is he is credited with creating the world ‘rock and roll’ as music catagory

Rock Hall of Fame Stoops to New Lows

By Helen Bach | July 20, 2014

Having been surrounded by memorabilia (and the household goods!) of King Elvis Presley I can tell you that looking at a jumpsuit is really worthless unless the artist is in it. I suppose from a stalker vantage rock swag is interesting but I could really couldn’t care less about Beyonce’s shoes

KISS and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Via Ace Frehley

By Helen Bach | April 20, 2014

There is nothing less macho than being that vague. Ace having an opinion is fabulous. Ace not getting to the point is lame. But this is over now. You wont hear anything more from KISS for a very long time.

By Helen Bach | February 25, 2014

To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any line-up, and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

Rejoice! Paul Stanley Calls Out The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Helen Bach | February 18, 2014

I have to admire him for being so outspoken and acknowledging the validation this will give the fans. That is an angle I had not thought of before. “doing it for the fans” always seems such a lame comment until now. I get it.

Will Cat Stevens Play Barclay Center April 10th, 2014?

By Iman Lababedi | January 21, 2014

You get the feeling it is going to be wretchedly terrible self congratulations for four hours seen from miles away, Just the thought of Dave Grohl’s acceptance speech for Nirvana terrifies me. And yet, yes, for the chance to see Cat Stevens in person I just don’t feel like I have any choice in the matter

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – Begging for Irrelevance

By Steve Crawford | December 18, 2013

As the RRHOF becomes more desperate for repeated visitors to their Cleveland pyramid and their online gift shop, the lowest common denominator will continue to define cultural excellence. At the 2023 induction ceremony, P. Diddy will strut across the stage and proclaim repeatedly with great bravado that, “It’s all about the Benjamins!”

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2014 Fan Vote Winner? KISS

By Helen Bach | December 18, 2013

This year the tally put makeup legends KISS on the top of the heap. I’m not surprised but I’m also not overwhelmed with joy- since I have very little respect for the award itself. Although I will pause to say that the museum in Cleveland is a nifty idea I for those so inclined to look at Elton Johns car keys.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Elvis Presley Style

By Helen Bach | December 5, 2013

I love the idea of seeing musicians artifacts so to speak, I’m just not a fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Wait, you can actually just go to Graceland if you wanted to see Presley’s stuff. Memphis is amazing!

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

By Helen Bach | October 19, 2013

Artists, historians and other music insiders have a shot at voting in their hero and they say you can too. The public will comprise a ‘fan vote’ which I suppose would equal about a 1/111134343535 portion of the total score. But it makes you feel good to be a part of it
