The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame Announces its Inductees for 2009


By Blurt Staff



From the Hall of Fame comes this announcement today:


“The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation today announced its inductees for 2009. In addition, for the first time in its 24- year history, tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be accessible to the public.”

Wait, you mean they’re going to let civilians in? In previous years, each $1500 ticket has only been available to a select group of managers, artists, friends, etc.

“This year’s class of inductees truly represents what the Hall of Fame is all about. From classic artists that began their careers in the 50’s and 60’s to those that have defined the modern sound of rock and roll,” said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President & CEO Joel Peresman.

The performer inductees are:  
Jeff Beck
Little Anthony & the Imperials
Bobby Womack

Early Influence Category Inductee:
Wanda Jackson

Sidemen Category:
Bill Black
DJ Fontana
Spooner Oldham

Wow. Um, what’s it going to take to get the Stooges in here? We’ll concede that this year’s lineup is one of the least offensive in years (Jeff Beck excluded), but seriously. The FUCKING STOOGES!

A limited number of pre-sale tickets to the Induction Ceremony at Cleveland’s historic Public Hall will be available to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum members on Thursday, January 22 and Friday, January 23.
