And the very first Heavy Metal award went to… Jethro Tull…
Now, now. That is one of their better albums. What he say? You heard me right dude. 😀
Good to see Gil get any kind of award - even posthumously.....but he was never Rock'n' Roll....
@paul.smith, I guess because so many rock fans like his material. Might as well induct Gilberto Gil, too, though.
@Alec But Jay-Z?
I guess that it is like Run DMC said
Once again there are too many inductees. Seems some belong in a different hall..
@naz123gul like LL Cool J and Gil Scott-Heron? I guess rock's big-tent? I keep thinking of wonder toy's, "When did rock become baseball" question with regards to The Hall. 😁 It was fun seeing Roxy Music perform. It was fun seeing Roy Wood accept the award for ELO with Jeff Lynn, too.
Don't forget Golden Earring!!!!
All of our faves will get in there eventually . . . right?
