Hall of Fame, Rock n Roll Runners-Up

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced their list of nominees for this year’s inductions:

Alice Cooper

Beastie Boys

Bon Jovi
Chic
Neil Diamond
Donovan
Dr. John
J. Geils Band
LL Cool J
Darlene Love
Laura Nyro
Donna Summer
Joe Tex
Tom Waits
Chuck Willis

Some years they end up voting in 5, some years 10 or 12.  Exactly who “They” are and what is their voting process is not clear to me.  It is completely clear to me that nobody gives a crap.  The R&R Hall of Fame is counterintuitive.   It bestows elitism to something that is supposed to be counter-elite.  What ever you make of it, here are links to past inductees and a more interesting article on who hasn’t been inducted yet:
