    Considering how long both artists have been around and their strong concert fan followings, it surprising the sales are not there.

    Steve Miller and Deep Purple are finally in, maybe there's hope for Warren Zevon.

    Can someone explain to me what went on with Steve Miller's speech? I saw a post-induction interview he did in front of 1 reporter, where he trashed the process, and he said the same in a Rolling Stone interview. But when I looked-up the actual induction speech, it was fine, he made no mention of that. Yet the Black Keys (who introduced him) said they were embarrassed by what he said, and that it caused them to walk out on his performance. So when did he make the inflammatory speech?

    I started to read the RS interview with the Black Keys but then I remembered I don't care.

    The Mrs read the longer version the other day. She said that he was giving them a ration of shit about how lame they are.
    I don't remember all of the details. One of them had to do with his tickets to the event. He got one for himself, and one for his wife. He asked for tickets for tickets for the guys in the band, and they told him it would cost $10,000 each. It sounded like the Hall of Fame is dead to someone else too.

    Yeah, Steve Miller made a lot of valid points, but The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach felt that Miller picked the wrong time to air his grievances. Plus, Miller didn't acknowledge the Keys at all.

    First world problems. When you become a member of the highest fraternity of rockers & you're still not satisfied.

    When was the last time people talked about Steve Miller since 1982?

    It's almost county fair season. Farmers in Iowa can start getting excited about see Steve again

    Badmouthing the establishment IS rock and roll. Suck it up, HoF.

    The Sex Pistols aren't in are they? That'd be an EPIC acceptance speech.

    The Pistols called the HOF a "piss stain" and refused to go.
    One of the things they were pissed off about was that they would have to had paid $25,000 for their table at the event.

    Like Bags said, anti-establishment is more rock and roll than the HOF.

    I wonder how many artists have gone to the ceremony just to tell them to get bent.

    If anyone cares, I'm watching the induction ceremony airing on HBO right now. Deep Purple was inducted by Lars, now they're playing.

    Every member of the band has a wife who's younger than their kids.

    Chicago got a standing ovation for 25 or 6 to 4. It was impressive, especially for (mostly) old guys.

    Cheap Trick closed the show. There's something creepy about 60-something geezers singing about teen love.

    So the broadcast began with Bowie's Fame, sung by David Byrne and Kimbra; and ended with the performance of Prince playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps at the RRHOF.
