2006 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Rock Hall of Fame Announces Inductees

NEW YORK - Black Sabbath, Miles Davis and the Sex Pistols are among five musical legends to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation will hold its induction ceremony March 13 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, the organization announced Monday.

Also to be inducted into the class of 2006: 1980s New Wave band Blondie and Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, who founded A&M records in 1962, will receive a lifetime achievement award in the non-performer category.

Inductees into the side-men category will be announced at a later date.

Musicians, industry professionals and journalists vote on the nominations. Artists are eligible to be inducted into the Rock Hall after at least 25 years have passed since their first record was released.

Nice to see B.S. and L.S. get their dues.

If there's one name I equate with rock and roll, it's Miles Davis.

Can't believe Sabbath is getting inducted after all the crap Ozzy talked about the HOF over the years. I expect Alice Cooper and Kiss will be along shortly.

If not for the Pistols rock music would be unrecognizable today. I can't even imagine what it would sound like.

Well, this is a bit of a letdown after U2's induction last year to say the least...

Oh and grunter, did you ever see Bono at Live Aid? Not so far off the Seagulls map...

The Sex Pistols were useless.

That's just ridiculous. The Clash, Ramones, Buzzcocks etc. would have more have than taken up the slack. The Pistols were just the most over the top punk band for a short period. The 8 or 9 great songs they wrote certainly deserve accolades but they are vastly overrated. And what the hell is so great about how rock sounds today?

How can one seriously deny the impact that the Sex Pistols had on rock music?

I don't care how influential their album was, one album is not enough to warrant an induction into the HOF.

I can understand not liking them, but saying they're "useless"!?!??! Wow!

I mean, I HATE Pink Floyd and U2, but I wouldn't say that they are "useless". Maybe I'd use that word for the Grateful Dead...

I can. They had one album, which, while cool, really didn't lead to anything. The punk scene was already a strong underground movement, in both the US and the UK. They were just a public face for it. If it hadn't been for the antics of Sid Vicious (who doesn't even appear on the album), they would have been a footnote, as well known by the general public as the Slits or X-Ray Specs.

Now if you want to talk about marketing, and manipulating the media, they were as influential as the Beatles. They just didn't add anything meaningful to rock music.
