    Without a doubt, he can actually rock.

    Yes. Concert in 84 still rates among the best I've ever seen.

    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    They are holding a spot for him. He rocks. I might not ( well definitely not) Rock him on my ipod but it's about his contribution to the world of music, not our likes or dislikes....

    He wrote one helluva lot of very - and I mean VERY - popular songs over the years, some he recorded, many he didn't. And for many years he sold more tickets to live shows than damn near anyone. I got my first road job (for another act) in the early eighties whilst being a runner at a sold out string of 4 nights at the Seattle Coliseum. That's 17 thousand seats per night. In fucking Seattle. Imagine what kind of business he was doing in LA, NY, Chicago.

    Like him or not he was a force to be reckoned with in the biz, and like it or not the hall of fame is largely about the biz, not the music.

    The RnRHOF is a private organization that makes their own decisions about who should be inducted. Who gives a flying fuck what they do or don't do? The RnRHOF is a bunch of limp-dick bullshit.

    Look who's in there and who isn't. As oftpiste said, it's about the biz, not the music, so why anyone that actually cares about music would give a shit what they do is completely beyond me.

    Agreed.

    That said, Neil Young is among a few elite singer songwriters that had profound influence on rock and roll history, and any who do not recognize that, are not worth listening to.

    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    Probably made just as many of your moms and grams panties wet as Elvis and the Beatles so let him in.

    The Rock HoF is kind of a joke anyway.

    You know, I worked on a few commercials with Englebert's daughter back in the day and she was a real sweetheart - gracious, engaging, funny, never complained in shitty conditions. Not your typical celebrity kid so he did something right.
