Re: Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees

There are some for sure. But the hall still lacks Big Star, Kraftwerk, Elliott Smith, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, the Smiths, Brian Eno, Blur, New Order, etc. All acts who deserve to get in on merit and/or influence. Big Star is a joke as a hall of fame candidate IMO. I've never even heard of Elliot Smit...

Documentary on PBS

From 1969-1973 there was a TV show called Soul! It came out of WNET in New York and was all about the Black experience in the USA. Lots of musical guests, political stuff, poetry, etc. There's a new documentary about the show that some of you may like. https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/videos/mr-s...

Besides historically overlooking women, the Hall’s biggest problem over the years has been displaying a similar bit of … discomfort, let’s say, with guys who dress like women or — the horror! — guys who slept with other guys.
