Dunno why we get wound up by the HoF. While Ahmet's intentions may have purely altruistic at the outset it has morphed to the point where commercial interest come first.


Great for those who are inducted, and induction may help revive the odd career, but meaningless as a measure of the contribution of artists in shaping contemporary music since the 50's.


Don't you mean Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone? I wasn't aware that Ahmet Ertegun was involved.


"Founder Ahmet Ertegun assembled a team that included attorney Suzan Evans, Rolling Stone magazine editor and publisher Jann S. Wenner, attorney Allen Grubman, and record executives Seymour Stein, Bob Krasnow, and Noreen Woods."


From Wiki


Cool. I always thought it was a Rolling Stone marketing vehicle.

The fact there's a Highway To Hell and only a Stairway To Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers
