Hello Hello!!


September 14th, 2004

I can't believe @ 05:36 am

orpheus42:
that Prince got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before U2.... I mean.... the guy is talented as hell, but COME ON! (never mind that 2005 is U2's first year of eligibility, I think)

I didn't know that whatever Prince does actually counts as 'rock and roll' ...

I despise his very existence, to be honest.

First of all: Do not knock the man in purple. Because good lord with the deserving and the talent.

Secondly: You're right. U2's first year of eligibility is this one. So there really isn't any argument.

'First of all: Do not knock the man in purple.'

That's on the level of waving a red flag to a bull.

Because Prince has been eligible for the past 2 years. Where as U2 haven't. Anyhow Prince is a legend.

Prince is an awesome composer. I'm glad he is in, he deserves it.

They'll be in this March, no questions asked; it's just a matter of eligibility. Not that that's the official word but generally, the inductions take place within the first few months of the New Year. U2 are rock gods - the R&R Hall Of Fame had a huge exhibit on them; it's not likely they'll be passed over because they have remained relevant over the course of 25 years.

PS - Sorry for seeming like a self-assured cocky bastard; this is just my prediction.

I think Prince started recording first -- I want to say his first album is 1978, whereas even U2-3 is late 1979, and I'm not sure EPs count. They're both damned influential artists, and they'll both be in by 2006, anyhow.

U2 doesnt give a shit

about that mutual admiration society crap anyways. I mean is Hendrix even in yet? There are many stains of the music industry enshrined in the RRHOF, thereby further displaying its lack of importance.

I was being slightly facetious... ;-)

Prince is talented as hell, any guy who's played all the instruments on any of his album gets my vote as deserving of some kind of honor, and his production work is incredible. At any rate, it's a moot point because '05 is U2's first year of eligibility. I was just being silly, intentionally.
