Now We're Talking!

Bon Jovi is nominated for induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Hopefully that means Rick Springfield isn't far behind!

The noms:
Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Donovan, Tom Waits, LL Cool J, Dr. John, the J. Geils Band, Darlene Love, Laura Nyro, Donna Summer, Joe Tex, and Chuck Willis. The Beastie Boys got a nod in 2008. Nyro, LL Cool J, and Summer were all nominated last year.

My pics would be
Bon Jovi -duh
Beasties -not sure they'll make it in, but it would be cool if they did
Neil Diamond -Metallica is in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame before this guy? C'mon.
Tom Waits -this has to be a for sure thing, everyone loves this guy and if you don't, whatever you do- don't tell anyone!
Laura Nyro -she has to get in over J. Geils!
Donna Summer -put on your rollerskates!

LL Cool J? I like Round the Way Girl, and Going Back to Cali like the next person, but Hall of Fame? And who are Joe Tex and Chuck Willis? I remember Darlene Love as Murtoch's wife in Lethal Weapon, but I know she sings a Christmas song on Letterman yearly (or she did for awhile). Donovan is the dippy hippie?
