Hey, there. Long time no see. Have you really been waiting here for that long? Wow. I can’t believe that you’d actually sit here and wait for four months just to see who got inducted into the Hall of Fame. I mean, I know that the reporting we did on the announcement of the nominees was top notch (TMT News), but... four months? Again, wow. Well, good thing we have an interview with James Hetfield of Metallica or you might be disappointed. Let’s get on with it!
Last week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the 2009 inductees into, yep, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Those to be inducted, on April 4, include Metallica, Run-D.M.C., Bobby Womack, Little Anthony and the Imperials, and Jeff Beck. Meanwhile, Wanda Jackson will be inducted into the “Early Influence Category,” and DJ Fontana, Bill Black, and Spooner Oldham will enter the hallowed hall of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's “Sidemen” category. That sounds great!
The organization had this to say:
In addition to being honored at the April ceremony, each inducted artist is commemorated at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland Ohio, which serves as a monument to rock and roll’s impact on our culture. These inductees will be honored – along with previous year’s inductees and hundreds of other artists – with an exhibit and film that serve to tell the story of modern music. Then I’ll eat them.
If you go, make sure you don't get eaten too. And what about that interview with James Hetfield? Fuck that.
