Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

I watched the Dio videos posted above. They're good. Love Pains is about what you'd expect from someone's first published song, but the vocals really sell it. Jesus Mary and Holy Ghost is exciting. So I thought I maybe was mistaken in my past assessment and I watched the video for Holy Diver. Nope, it's still dull.

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

The other thing about Ronnie is that he could sing almost anything and sound great. He could have been the next Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett if he wanted to. His voice was just so amazing - listen to this for something very uncharacteristic of what you'd expect from Dio...




...and a live version when he was pushing 60...




The fact that he hasn't even been nominated is absurd. The level of ignorance and arrogance of both the nominating committee and the voters in general shows that there is a real problem with the way they run that place.

There just shouldn't be a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Ronnie's rolling over in the grave knowing that Vivian Campbell is in HOF but he's not.

I don't think Ronnie ever gave a single thought or care to the RRHOF

Is Viv in?

Sometimes they donít let new guys in, like when Kiss got in it was just Paul, Gene, Ace, and Peter, and not Tommy, Vinnie, Bruce, or either Eric.

Credit to Def Leppard's lineup longevity that the "new guy" has been there 26+ years.

Both new guys. Collen ins't an original either. I guess kudos to them for including Willis when the time came.

It always feels like Campbell hasnít been with Def Leppard that long. I guess I think he should have played with Whitesnake longer.

Then again, it blows my mind that Cliff Burton was with Metallica for less than five years, and that Trujillo is their longest serving bassist.

And donít even get me started on Ron Wood...

Re: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2019 Nominees

It's ridiculous that RJD hasn't even been in the running.

It would be an interesting induction though. Imagine Geezer, Ward, Iommi, Appice and about 500 others would love to stand on stage and talk about their experiences with Ronnie. The most interesting would be Viv.

I think Tommy wasnít allowed in because of his huge head.

I met him this past SDCC and he does indeed have a very large head. It's incredible.
Really nice guy though. Kudos to him for going from manger to band mate, though.
