2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees

Announced this week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2013 are:

Performer Category:
· Heart
· Albert King
· Randy Newman
· Public Enemy
· Rush
· Donna Summer

Ahmet Ertegun (non performer) Award:
· Lou Adler
· Quincy Jones

You're on a three-day solo drive cross-country on the a car with a busted radio antenna. Whose greatest hits cassette would you bring for your walkman?

All are deserving in some way, but I am only a fan of three of them.

Rush certainly has the longevity, radio hits and musical / songwriting chops to be in the Hall.

I wore out some Heart LP's in college. They were a favorite for several albums, but they drifted into ballads and danceable pop a few times too many along the way. I lost my interest.

I rate Albert King at the top of the class, based on his influence on other musicians and timelessness of his music.

I saw a Facebook post where the members of Rush thanked their mothers for voting 6000 times each.

Quincy Jones "non-performer"?!?
