As you ponder all those who brought us The Doris Day Show, what are YOU bringing to the Hall?

This All-Star Jam invites you to do your thing.

  2. Now, does the first of couple indie rock pass to Low’s Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker?

  3. Judging from my Facebook feed, the first couple of indie rock is now Ira and Georgia from Yo La Tengo.

  4. I’ve not seen this Elvis clip before: http://youtu.be/KxardpBReQc

    Maybe not his best collaboration but still better than his work with the Brodskey Quartet.

  5. I should note that I saw this on HBV’s facebook feed

    I’ve just seen the announcement that the Stone Roses are reforming http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-15348374

    Was there ever a band who shone so brightly on their first album and then took so long to deliver anything as unmemorable as their second?

  7. Good question. Did The La’s ever get around to a second album? How about My Bloody Valentine? I personally wasn’t a fan of their debut albums, but I know they went a really long time without a follow up – and I don’t believe they produced beloved sophomore albums, if so.

    Was there a second Sex Pistols album, really?

    George Harrison? His first real solo album (All Things Must Pass) was and still is a landmark album as far as Beatle solo albums go. It took him nearly three years – a long time in the 1970s – to follow it up with Living In the Material World. That was still a pleasant album but far weaker than the first.

    MBV took three years to come out with the second album Loveless, which I think is a pretty strong album – better than their first in my opinion. It’s now widely regarded as one of the best albums of the ’90s.

    The La’s never released a second album, though outtakes and early stuff began showing up a decade later.

    Not a proper one, Talcy Malcy tried to milk the brand with the Great Rock n Roll Swindle, but Lydon was long gone and no-one I knew was fooled.

  12. Only enough time to skim things at RTH lately so if these items have been mentioned I’ve missed them. (And it’s a sad commentary that I’m getting my music news from the last few weeks of Time & Newsweek.)

    Is this the poorest list of nominees ever for the R&R Hall of Fame for 2012: Guns N’ Roses, The Spinners, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Heart, The Cure, Eric B. & Rakim, The Small Faces, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, & Freddie King.

    And there’s a picture of the newlyweds – Paul McCartney & Nancy Shevell – in one of those mags. The new Mrs. Macca is as young looking a 51 year old I’ve ever seen, at least in that picture. And I’m guessing it’s not botox like Paul does it or she’d have taken care of the lines under her eyes.

    The Spinners, Heart, the Small Faces & Freddie King all deserve it.

    Have you been to the Hall? It should reallly be the Pop Hall of Fame. Even my nine year old Daughter was not able to compute why Madonna was in the Hall. It was first thing that she wanted to know.

  14. Separated at old age: Dylan and Khadafy?

  15. BigSteve

    Have you seen Elvis Costello’s latest Look?


    It’s kind of ‘deposed dictator disguised as a card shark.’

    I’m thinking along the lines of a Cuban pimp circa 1973 checking on his babes in Little Havana, Miami.
