MTV’s Kurt Loder gave his thoughts on the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Monday night in New York. Loder said, “It’s understandable why a chorus of critical bellyaching sometimes accompanies the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. I occasionally bellyache myself. After all, any self-appointed music-biz organization that’s decreed James Taylor and (this year) ’50s teen-pop muffin Brenda Lee to be worthy of inclusion in the pantheon of rock immortals, while the likes of Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Captain Beefheart and Dick Dale — the father of surf music! — shiver outside the gates, is begging for argument.”
