It’s a man’s world. We all know it — but I’ll say it again. It’s a man’s world.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 Inductees were announced today to a bunch of dudes, and a bone (pun not intended, but is fitting) was thrown to one woman. The five inductees in the performer category are as follows: Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro, the collected bands The Small Faces / The Faces, and Beastie Boys.
No Joan Jett. No Heart. No Donna Summer….but mostly? NO JOAN MF-ING JETT???
Now we all get to see who will show up at the induction ceremony, besides Paul Schaffer. Will Axl blow the whole thing off? (I’m thrilled for Duff McKagen, I must admit.)
Maybe Paul can have the bands all join him in his classic, “It’s Raining Men” for the all-star closing performance. Seems appropriate.
Now I’m crabby.
