Suck On This, DeCurtis

Once on VH1's Four on the Floor, Anthony DeCurtis declared that as long as he had any kind of say in it, Black Sabbath would never be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I guess DeCurtis isn't as powerful as he once was -- the Sabs are getting inducted into the hall. I wonder if Ronnie James Dio, Vinnie Appice, Geoff Nichols, Ian Gillan, Bev Bevan and any of the other 48 musicians who have played in Sabbath get to join, or if it's just Iommi, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill?

Other acts to be inducted this year: the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Lynyrd Skynyrd and noted rock 'n' roller Miles Davis.

Don't pout, Anthony: Maybe Sylvester will get in next year.

What a crazy list of inductees! I am thinking, where is Abba? Maybe organizers think, 'hmmm...how can we make worst closing jam ever?'

Did first post work? I don't think so. I type again -

Don't worry about Bev Bevan. He is eligible twice more for ELO and the Move, who will also never get in.

Don't get me started on the closing jam. Nothing like watching 50 millionaire rock stars crammed on a stage fumbling their way through "Johnny B. Goode," all under the direction of Paul Shaffer. Their rendition of "Paranoid" (what, you thought they'd attempt "Symptom of the Universe?") should be absolutely atrocious.

Actually, they should play "Children of the Grave" and then segue into Blondie's "Call Me," since they have the exact same guitar riff.
