@ninjawife , Seeing Carole King's name made me think of Tapestry. I played the heck out of that album.

I most sincerely hope that Carole King and Tina Turner get their just due.  The others would be ok, but it doesn't matter as much to me.

I voted online more than a few times - whenever I remembered.  Always the same five:

 

Carole King

Foo Fighters

Todd Rundgren

Tina Turner

Dione Warwick.

 

Did Dione not make the final cut?  I guess she's not really what I think of when I think rock n roll, but still very deserving.

 

I don't remember seeing billy preston as part of the list I was voting from!?

Rock n roll my foot.

 

where's Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Boston, or ELO?

It took them forever to induct Rush, and Rush even acknowledged that in their speech.

I'm actually sort of shocked it took this long for Carol King to get the nod.

I think only those in the Performer category were in the online voting.  The others were in different categories.  There are a lot of musicians in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that I would not consider Rock and Roll.

  JMO but Jay Z doesn't deserve to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

  So glad that Carole King, Tina Turner & Foo Fighters finally made it!!

CAROLE KING?  Really?  Rock and roll?
