(Hopefully that'll teach em. But I wouldn't count on it.)
Also, Lou Reed? Been inducted TWICE! As a solo artist and as a member of the VU. But Iggy? Not once. Not as a solo artist or a Stooge. Bowie's in there, Blondie, the Ramones,The Clash, Talking Heads... all in. No Iggy.
Love Patti and love REM but, seriously, fuck the Hall of Fame.
the stooges are like black sabbath, bastard children in the rock n roll world.
it took FOREVER for them to recognize black sabbath, a band WAY more influential than the stooges (not better, but more influential. both rule IMO)
these things take time.
