Even though KISS finally was chosen for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year after many years of eligibility, some of the band’s members, including singer/guitarist Paul Stanley, continue to voice disdain for the institution and its machinations.

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott, whose band will be hitting the road with KISS this summer, also apparently has little affection for the Rock Hall. In a recent podcast interview with HitFix, the singer shared his humorous take on how Hall of Fame officials decide on who enters the institution based on who they consider cool.

“I see…this board room of faceless tuxedo-wearing morons. Mr. Roboto times six or whatever, leafing through [a list of bands],” he explains. “‘Def Leppard, nah. Tom Waits, absolutely. Bon Jovi, no. Nick Cave, absolutely. Leonard Cohen, yes. KISS, no. Sabbath, no. Springsteen, yes. Mellencamp, yes. Tom Petty, yes.’ That’s the way I look at it… I don’t care about people like thathttp://www.classichitsandoldies.com/v2/2...rock-hall/

They can induct Jethro Tull and house them in the heavy metal section.


I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

I think about and look at any hall of fame like i see and think about the academy awards as being no way for anyone to determine what a really good movie is,because so many really good movies have won no academy awards and the academy awards have made some notoriously bad decisions,like awarding The Sound Of Music as 1965's best picture and best director when 1965's Doctor Zhivago was and is and always will be a far superior film in every possible way and 1977's Annie Hall winning best picture and best director over 1977's Star Wars ect ect...
