Not much can save the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame from being a joke at this point. The nominating committee lives in a dreamland controlled by Jann Wenner. It’s the last thing Wenner actually owns after his publishing company has been sold off for scrap.
But now the fans have voted on the Hall’s site for who they think should be inducted next spring. Their top three choices: Bon Jovi, the Moody Blues, and Dire Straits. I agree with them. Will Wenner get the message? Or will he just ignore the vote? (He’s done it before.)
Maybe someone can talk some sense to him. Meanwhile, Jon Bon Jovi gets the last laugh. I’m thrilled.
