    Just got word from Eddie Trunk that Myles Kennedy is heading to Cleveland tomorrow. No official word, but my guess is that he will be singing GNR songs during the induction like he does for Slash's current band.

    These are good choices. Surprised some of them aren't already in there given some of the crap that they have put in.

    They did a little better this year than they have in the past.

    At the risk of stirring up scotch's ire, who is Nina Simone?

    The other choices I agree with. This one I don't know her so can't really offer an opinion one way or the other (at this point).

    My ire is always shaken, not stirred. I've heard of Nina Simone, but I know nothing about her. Having just looked her up, she was a 1960s blues and R&B artist and activist. So she's not on my radar.

    She's got an amazing voice.

    I'm a little disappointed......

    As I believe I've discussed before, my introduction to music was via my older brother. It was instrumental-heavy rock and fusion. Chicago, BS&T, ELP, Mahavishnu Orchestra, early Zeppelin, Yes. We weren't listening to Motown, Frankie Valli, the Stones. I'm not a music historian, but I have a friend who's more of one.

    When I listened to THSS yesterday, I realized that HBO had aired the 2018 induction ceremony, so I pulled it up on-demand. It's nearly a 3-hour broadcast - despite Howard's rant about heavy editing - and I only made it through some of the rock acts last night. But here are my thoughts.

    The Killers/Brandon Flowers did an awesome opening tribute to Tom Petty with American Girl (and a bit of Free Falling). He also introduced The Cars with a good speech. The band members made good speeches, and they performed 3 songs, despite the fact that Rick Ocasek can't sing anymore (he never could sing, but whatever he used to do, he can no longer do it).

    Ann Wilson of Heart introduced the Moody Blues with a decent speech. The band members made good speeches, and then they too did 3 songs. They had sounded awesome a few years ago, when they did a concert that aired on PBS, but now they seem like old british men; not bad, but weak and tired. The guy who sang lead on Nights in White Satin had a ridiculous amount of autotune on; and with his starting-stopping vocal style, it sounded weird.

    After they played the video tribute to Dire Straits, 3 of the members came to the stage and spoke. Mark Knopfler "didn't feel like going"; that was his only comment on the event. Maybe the RRHOF is dead to him too. And because he wasn't planning to be there, the 2 potential inductors - Keith Urban and Neil Young - backed-out. So there was no introduction, and no performance.

    I skipped Nina Simone, but it seemed like that went on for an interminable amout of time. They did the "In Memorium", and then Ann Wilson and Jerry Cantrell performed Black Hole Sun, in honor of Chris Cornell. Cantrell's guitar sound was awesome, but the song went on a bit long, I thought.

    I had to stop before Stern came on. I will watch the rest and report back.

    Black Hole Sun seemed to go on far to long even when it was current.
