Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame proving that they need to just create a Hip Hop Hall of Fame because it hardly makes sense. Sure, it's an honor, but wouldn't they be better served to just call it the Music Hall of Fame for accomplishments in modern music? Patti Smith was also inducted. And the only band more self-important than U2, R.E.M., was inducted which is cool because maybe this means I don't have to ever sit through another R.E.M. performance on television. Michael, you made it. Congrats. Now take a load off and stop performing you old, skinny hag. Speaking of Hall of Fame inductions, Van Halen turned out for their induction--all two of them and neither of them a Van Halen. Michael Anthony and Uncle Hagar came to accept their induction. Freaking embarrassing. I wonder when this band is going to realize that they were once important, but then blew it somewhere between Cherone and rehab. I'm sure no one was shocked that they didn't all show up because it's becoming a running joke. The Van Halen brothers, while great musicians, remain probably two of the most unnecessarily difficult band members in the world. Why would anyone want to play with these guys? Professionalism is having a band named after you inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and failing to appear while your brother comes out of the closet as a female in rehab. Check out Eddie.
Eddie's starting to look like another great Eddie of rock. Who needs rehab if it makes you look like an old woman? Wow, some ugly faces in there. Let's end this post with a genuinely peaceful looking fella with a white beard and a last name identical to mine. It's amazing who you can find just by searching your last name in Google. No, I don't know who he is, but I'm proud to share last names with him. The same can't be said for some people I found when searching my last name. So let's look at this man and say, "Yes, it's going to be a wonderful Tuesday."
