2008 – Armstrong and Getty: Cleavelend’s ‘Rock -n- Roll Hall of fame’ annouces ‘Run DMC’, famed for ‘Walk this way'(written by Aerosmith), will be inducted into the hall of fame. Excluded from the nominees are Stevie Ray Vaughn and Bon Jovi to name but a few.
Morning talk show hosts ‘Armstrong and Getty’ displayed their dismay of the announcement reffering to it as the ‘RECTUM OF FAME’ and intimating that Cleveland itself isn’t really the city you think of when you think ‘Rock-n-Roll’. Although, it is argued to be the birthplace of rock because of the DJ who first played it… well why not where it was first recorded… is that Memphis… or Los Angeles… I dunno…
This editor thinks they are greatly in the right by saying so. I think they should make a pre-requistie that you have to know how to play ‘Johnny B. Goode’ on the guitar before you can be nominated.
Run DMC before Stevie Ray Vaughn… it should be called the ‘Hall of Shame’.
