Since there was never an album released with that artist credited as the performer, that duo will never be eligible for induction.

^ I know that's what the album cover says, but crazily everything I can find (i.e. Wikipedia, Amazon, Spotify) online shows that the album is credited as an Ozzy Osbourne solo album.

I's an Ozzy live album recorded while Rhodes was part of the band.

Yeah, I just checked my vinyl copy, and although the jacket and it's spine show Ozzy/Randy as the artists, the record labels themselves just say "Ozzy Osbourne - Tribute". It's an Ozzy album with Rhoads' name added to the cover as a selling point IMO.

Seems to be nothing more than making it clear the album featured Randy rather than Jake E. Lee.

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

Devo would eaily by number one choice.

After them I guess Roxy Music and LL Cool J (and, as always, write in for X and The Fall).

Not a bad class at all. Delighted that The Cure got in. Still think Stevie Nicks did very little as a solo artist to warrant induction-- but it's more than Ringo I guess.

I too don't think Stevie is worthy as solo artist. Happy for the The Cure. Long overdue.

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

I love Def Lep as much as the next guy but honestly, they are not hall worthy.

But overall a great class. I love how Radiohead got in. I actually re-visited In Rainbows recently and liked it far more than I did upon the first few listens. It stands well on its own.

Nice to see Zombies get in. They left a small footprint, but out of only two LPS, one is among the all time best, and out of only three hit sings, one is among the best and well known rock songs of all time.

People sometimes use this standard for Baseball's HoF "Can you tell the story of the era without mentioning this player?", by that standard : Could you make a 1 hour documentary on the history of 80's arena rock without mentioning Def Leppard? No way. Could you do one on 80's rock in general without mentioning them? I doubt it. That's good enough for me.

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

The Cure, Roxy, and The Zombies were long overdue. (The Zombies long, LONG overdue.)

Stevie Nicks? She had one really good solo album and a few fairly decent solo albums, but only Bella Donna was at the HOF level.

Janet Jackson? Meh. Whatever.

Def Leppard? Their first three albums were all great. Hysteria was such a monster success that it made them impossible for the HOF to ignore. They were arguably the biggest Rock band of the 80's.

Radiohead? I'm honestly not at all familiar with them, but I have to think that with all the worthy potential inductees who have been waiting for a decade or two to get in that it's a little early for Radiohead. I'm not saying they're not worthy (I can't say either way), but do they deserve to leapfrog over worthy artists/bands who have been waiting for a decade or two? I doubt it.

Why Ronnie James Dio? I'm not into metal at all, so I need an explanation. I had a friend who was into Dio in the 1980s, and he seemed like another unimaginative trend follower. How is he ranked with Motorhead and Iron Maiden?

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

RJD is essentially heavy metal royalty. He fronted Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, post-Ozzy Black
Sabbath, and his own solo band, Dio. He’s also credited with popularizing the \m/ devil horns hand sign associated with heavy metal music.

He was also performing since the 1950s.

In the 1970's and very early 80's Ronnie James Dio invented the trends the others followed in the rest of the 80's. He was also the best pure singer in the Hard Rock & Heavy Metal business.

And, as noted above, his career spanned over half a century.

He co-formed a great band (great while he was in it, anyway) with Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple (that band being Rainbow).

He resuscitated a band that was considered to be a dead band walking, commercially - Black Sabbath.

And he started his own band, which put out some of the all time greatest Hard Rock and Heavy Metal albums ever - DIO.

And no one grew more as an artist than Ronnie James Dio. See the song posted above, plus this one - the first track written by Ronnie, and his first major label record (which was released in 1962)...




From that, to this 31 years later at the age of 51...




Live version, plus another song from that album...





There are a lot of reasons why Ronnie James Dio is a legend. Those are just a few of them.

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

^Agreed. Although I can understand why some may find the DIO stuff slightly generic. There was a lot of similar sounding stuff around at the same time and if someone hadn't already been listening from 1975-83 with the Rainbow and Sabbath stuff,just jumping in with the DIO stuff, it may not have grabbed them.
Already a fan of Deep Purple and Sabbath, I just continued buying and listening when Rainbow came along, then Heaven and Hell, then Dio.
Then Gillian in Black Sabbath.
I dropped Rainbow after Dio left, and Sabbath after Born Again.
It was the same for me with Coverdale. Already a Deep Purple fan, when he replaced Gillian I continued to buy and listen, when Whitesnake came along I was already a ready built fan.
I never knew his two solo albums between Deep Purple and Whiresnake existed until the internet because they didn't get a US release. You can get them now.

Don't know what people think about him around here but Paul Rodgers is another legend in my opinion. Love the guy.
At only 19 he fronted Free for six albums (1968-73). Then Bad Company for six albums (1973-82). Then the two Firm albums (1985-86). Among various other solo projects.
People love to hate on the Paul Rodgers + Queen. It may not be very good Queen, but it's killer Rodgers.

Yeah, Simon Kirke. (Also from Bad Company.) And a couple later replacement guys, but I don't count them as full band members.

Great to see The Cure get their due.

And yeah, Dio is very highly regarded in the metal world, the guy is a frigging legend.
