If the fee thing is true they should tell the "Hall of Fame" to go f*ck themselves. The kind of people who care about that sort of crap don't listen to the Stooges anyway.

I think the fee is for guests only, not the actual inductees & it's probably a tax deductable donation. The Pistols have done quite well for themselves since reforming, I'm sure they could afford to travel--it was all about principle. Seems like the labels would pick up the tab anyway, as they should, because an induction leads to a surge in back catalog sales. Besides, the HOF is all about the industry patting itself on the back. They really should change the name to Popular Music HOF, would be more honest.

They're IN. I TOLD you. It's so exciting! Who will induct them? What will they play? What memorabilia will they put up in the Hall of Fame for the Stooges? I can hardly wait.

Bittersweet.

And the one band member who might have been really pleased about it is not around to see it happen. Pretty fucking ironic.

Not right.

My feelings exactly Nat.

From the other related thread:

ElRoi wrote:
The fact that it took a band as influential as the Stooges eight nominations to finally be excepted when ABBA probably got in on their first nomination (I am not positive about this, but it wouldn't surprise me if that were in fact the case) just speaks to the lack of credibility of the whole RnRHoF. They should have been inducted the first time they were nominated or at least the next time around after the reunion. I'm sure it would have meant a lot to Ron to have finally had his contributions to and influence on music recognized by the industry.
I might add to my previous comment, "a misguided, self-absorbed industry that for most of the Stooges careers (as a band and individually) ignored, ridiculed, dismissed, shunned and at times reviled them."

I've always thought the Stooges were too dangerous.
They epitomized the center for decades. When is the MC5 going in?

Yes, the VU are in. They were inducted in 1996 I think.

Sorry, i think its going to be great to see them on stage,. Back in the day i only wanted them to be in to see them all play again. But now , itll be fuuny to see them. i mean, here comes abba, all fat ,worn out , you know they wont play, probably get hanna montana to cover them, or the cast of glee! Then the stooges come on stage, iggy sez, '' one, two, fuck you motherfucker and they rip into search and destroy. Itll be great!

yes, probably.

It does seem rather suspicious. Dare I bring up one of the possible reasons that may have to do with their long time exclusion? It has to do with a particular "fascination" of Ron's. It was stated in Paul Trynka's book "Open Up And Bleed" as one of, if not the very reason (the straw that broke the camels back you might say) that the Stooges were dropped from Elektra by Don Gallucci.

Ah yes, I remeber the quote exactly from the book, Ron told Gallucci, when he asked what was up with the Nazi memorabilia , that when his mom dried his hair with a blow dryer as a child, he could hear "Zieg Heil, zeig heil" in the woosh of the dryer...apparently that freaked Gallucci out and he wanted nothing to do with the band after that. I had never thought that Ron's Nazi connection had anything to do with the Stooges being blackballed but now that you mention it it does make sense from a certain conservative business outlook.

Such a funny story that, typical Ron. Pity we won't get any more entertaining interviews from him.

I gotta say I just don't like the idea of the RockRoll Hall of fame and not for any elitist snobby reasons. For me it just seems like its one for the badge collectors out there as R&R in its essence is/was never about awards ceremony, respect & certainly doesn't belong in some kind of exclusive accademy - its a LIVING THING! When I discovered Raw Power back in 92 one of the things that gripped me about it then was how a 'badly' mixed & obscure record could sound so vital, intense & savage some 20 years after its making. How is putting this band in some kind of memorial society gonna add anything to their legacy?

My hope is that a bunch of young people will listen to the stooges for the first time, and find out what r n r is all about.

Were the only band that Was Really Rock going into the hall of fame
