Re: Rolling Stone: The 100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time

I undertook a project recently where we ranked the hall of famers in order based on their worthiness. Just the main performers and the early influences. Here's what we came up with. I would be interested who the 'we' are and what you consider 'worthiness' ! I think the general consensus amongst mus...

The eligible non-inductees seem like they're in the same class as a lot of the people who made it in. Now that the Beatles and the Chuck Berrys of the world have already made it in, we're stuck at the part of the story where the focus is on who hasn't made it in and why not.

Re: Rolling Stone: The 100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time

Some of the most popular acts have been acclaimed-challenged- look at Journey. The band has not even made it as a nominee for the Hall of Fame- its popularity should not be a factor in that, I totally disagree. Popularity is certainly one part of a band's objective accomplishments. Whether or not t...

Part of why I don’t especially like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is because of Dave Marsh having been in charge (along with a handful of other guys) of what is great music or not.
