I watched the entire “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” on TV last night and I was very surprised. The show was one of the best ” Rock Hall of Fame” shows in a very long time. The “Hall of Fame” has been crap the last couple of years, but this year was surprisingly good. I enjoyed all the inductees this year and the speeches and performances were great.
Wanda Jackson was incredible.
Eminem gave an amazing speech on Run-DMC, his speech about the legendary rap group was very heart warming.
The Jimmy Page speech was very brief and short, he didn’t talk long on stage at all, but Jeff Beck’s speech was good though. Jeff was honest that even he admits that he’s not big enough to be in the Hall of Fame, and admits that he doesn’t deserve to be inducted. Jeff Beck’s live performance was fucking amazing and mind blowing though.
Flea gave a hilarious and great speech about Metallica. Metallica’s acceptance speech was amazing too. Cliff Burton’s father was on stage and Cliff’s mother was out in the audience watching the band get inducted. You had to feel sorry for Cliff’s mother ’cause she was crying the whole time wishing her son was alive and on stage to experience the amazing moment. It was great to see Jason Newsted again. I loved seeing Jason and Rob jamming together. I was surprised they picked “Master of Puppets”, then of course they played, “Enter Sandman” after. Metallica an incredible performance at the Hall of Fame, now I really can’t wait to see them live in Albany in Nov.
Music fans out there really need to stop hating and bashing the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” so much. The reason the “Hall of Fame” is here in Cleveland is to honor these legendary musicians of the music they gave us here in the music industry. They deserve the celebration and the honor. If you disrespect legendary musicians and bands, then you have no idea what music is all about what so ever, and you have no right to be a music fan in the first place.
The Hall of Fame is a really special thing. If you hate the “Hall of Fame” so much, that’s just a clear sign that you wish you were a “Hall of Famer” musician and that you will never be there. Every musician that got inducted last night gave advice to other musicians that if you want to be a “Hall of Famer”, you have to believe in your music and stay focus on your dreams, ’cause yes, dreams coming true can be possible.
You have to love and care for your music no matter what happens to you in your life. Your family and friends may think you’re crazy, and delusional that you want to be famous for your music, but if you don’t listen to what anybody else thinks and do what makes you happy, you could be a famous musician down the road.
That’s how all these musicians and bands made the Hall of Fame. They believed in themselves and their music. They came a long road to get here. I loved last night’s “Hall of Fame” show, it was great all the way through.
A few videos from last night. The Metallica performances. Enjoy.
