Free Guy Ritchie

Madonna should NOT be inducted into "The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame."

Have Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart been inducted yet? Has Pat Benatar or Joan Jett?
What about The Runaways?

How about Grace Slick as a solo artist OR June and Jean Millington of FANNY?

What about SUZI QUATRO? Lucinda Williams? Linda Ronstadt? Yoko Ono? The GoGo's? Melanie? Nina Hagen? Kate Bush? Emmylou Harris? Rickie Lee Jones? Marianne Faithfull? Joan Baez? Chaka Khan? JOAN ARMATRADING?


What the Fuck? Once again! HEART!!!

Madonna can't sing and she's a crap musician, that's common knowledge but most of all SHE HAS NEVER BEEN CONNECTED TO ROCK MUSIC or the female experience of being rock singer. Not through soul, country or the blues and definitely not through purist rock.

In fact there is a huge argument that she helped usher in all this crappy bubblegum pop along with MTv and the whole "square torso and hair dye before voice lessons school of entertainment."

Mange belongs in the POP Music Hall of Fame with Britney, Paris Hilton and all the other tone deaf, fashion stylist addicted clones who put that crap before talent and originality and who have disgustingly brought their hardcore airhead porn antics for little girls to emulate.

Janis didn't sing and die for some, puny haggard anti-Amazon to follow her into history.

What a joke the Hall of Fame will be if she's inducted.
John Lydon and the Sex Pistols are right.

I do only beacuse the women that cracked the boy's club worked themselves nearly to death and have done an incredible job. Suzi Quarto still tours as do many of the women on that list. They don't put out sweatshop clothing lines and adopt/have kids for their nannies to raise, they get out there and rock.

I believe in giving credit where credit is due but yeah John is right.

You are right, Amanda, there are far more deserving women singer/songwriters out there!

Thanks for visiting and for your words of support and kindness. I'm hanging in.

Thank you for the kind words on my Madonna article (you seem to be in a very small group of people who agree with me on this matter).

I enjoyed your article as well. The un-inducted artists you mentioned speak volumes about the HoF's credibility problem. Tina Turner hasn't been inducted as a solo artist either.

I have a hard time rationalizing the inclusion of Madonna in the same league as Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, and Janis Joplin.

Great article.
