    Rock Hall of Fame names nominees for `07

    David Bauder

    (AP) Van Halen is trying to make their biggest "jump" yet into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with potential 2007 classmates such as R.E.M., Chic, and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.

    All are among the nine nominees for enshrinement in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. A panel of 500 industry experts will select five to be inducted at the annual ceremony, to be held March 12 in New York City.

    Other nominees include Patti Smith, the punk rock poet who recently presided over the closing of New York's legendary CBGB nightclub; British invader the Dave Clark Five; Phil Spector favorites the Ronettes; soul singer Joe Tex; and the Stooges, early home of Iggy Pop.

    Chic? Are you kidding me? REM absolutely. Grandmaster Falsh and Furious Five, I've never heard of them.

    I'm glad Van Halen has been included. While they haven't had anyone that was very good on vocals (David Lee Roth was entertaining though) their music was always good. I still consider Eddie Van Halen one of the best guitariests ever.

    I have no idea who Chic is, lol! I've heard of Grandmaster Flash, he is very much a pioneer of the genre.

    I assume they nominated the David Lee Roth version of VH. The other singers would have come along too soon for nomination. If that's the route they take, can they be re-nominated when their Hagar years are 25 years old??? Or do ALL the lead singers get in with the band?

    An individual can be inducted multiple times with different groups, I know. (See: Clapton, Eric.)

    Hey DK

    Chic? La freak! wasn't that their one hit wonder single in the disco era??
    I wish we could vote on this. Van Halen deserves it though i've never bought one album. Eddie van Halen is the hottest guitarist. He really does rank up there for me. No where near Page, Hendrix, but def one of the best.

    Great item, thanks for posting it.
    oh yeah, God has blessed me today and I ain't afraid to say it!!
    So take THAT narla.
    it's all in love girl, don't get your nickers ina twist.

    you keep spreading the gospel DK. Somebody's toes are bound to get stepped on.

    peace

    I liked REM before everyone knew them, then they went all mainstream. Use to go see them in some real dives in the 80's in Georgia and south Alabama.

    I'm already geared up for Stevie Ray Vaughan, he's on the list for 2008! Yippee!

    Rem

    I agree that REM is above and beyond Van Halen. I bought REM albums.
    I also saw them around athens,GA before they were mainstream. As well as the B52's.
    Stevie Ray BETTER make it!

    Love and kisses, Narla, I just wanted to see if you were awake.
    You are.
    I'm just teasin.

    Thanks, kk, lol!

    I have no problem considering Eddie as the greatest ever, due to his innovation and influence as well as creativity and, obviously, talent. Although Hendrix himself said that Jeff Bleck blew him out of the water, talent-wise.

    And yeah, now I remember Chic!!!! LOL! I cannot imagine them in the Rock Hall!!!!

    I would put Van Halen ahead of REM, but both should make it in this year, I think. I also think Patty Smith is worthy and the Dave Clark Five.

    Well,Chic belongs in the Disco Hall Of Fame,not rock--although I did like their last song You're So Fine(To Me)(1980)---also agree that while Eddie Van Halen was an excellent guitarist,he is generally not seen as the equal of Jimmy Page,Hendrix,or Clapton----surprised the Dave Clark Five is not in the Hall Of Fame yet--my rock history book shows they had a lot of top ten hits from 1964 to 1967,a seminal period in rock history

    WHAT? Stevie Ray is not already in the Hall of Fame? I really don't keep up with that, but for sure I thought he was already a member.

    He's in the Blues Hall of Fame. Good, but not the golden prize. We'll be pushing, he IS up there with Hendrix, Clapton and way better than Eddie :-)

    I am shocked by the lack of Eddie love!!! He is an extraordinary talent that influenced a generation and was inventive, creating finger taps, etc. Poor Eddie.
