Hall of Fame Members
Rock and roll came from the blues and so did a lot of country. The blues came from the black spirtual songs from the slavery days. Back then even the blues was frown upon by the black spirtual singers. Mick Jagger knew this, thats why he helped bring back Muddy Waters in the late 70's after he was well forgotten.
Rock and Roll hall of fame selections...ha ha ha. public enemy is sooooo not rock and roll genre.. The fact that bands like deep purple, Blue Oyster Cult, Joan Jett and many other legendary rockers are still not in there... and PE is, makes the legitimacy of this so called "Hall" laughable. Who died and left them boss.
