Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees
I trust that you all enjoyed the Thanksgiving break. It's the beginning of the holiday crazy train ride. Buckle up and avoid Walmart, if at all possible.
This year, the RARHOF will be inducting the following:
Miles Davis (uh, about frappin' time)
The Sex Pistols
It's always a treat to watch the ceremony. The last time I tuned in, Keith Richards kept moving his head around, as if it were caught in a massive swarm of mosquitos. Years of drug abuse can do this to a person. My theory about Keith Richards is - and has always been - that he will be the first human being to fossilize upon his last breath. I would be willing to bet that some of his innards have already started this process. I believe that he has already defied the laws of nature by escaping death. Once a person gets beyond this point, there's just no telling what they are capable of.
I secretly hope that John Lydon doesn't show up. It will surely be another awkward "why am I here and what does all this mean?" type of moments. The urge to humiliate the Hall of Fame and pee on the event will be far too tempting for Johnny, though, so expect strangeness if you watch. (Wait, isn't this unpredictable, challenging authority stuff why I love him? Either I've aged or ... no, there is no "or" ... I've aged.)
More rumors of Manny to the Mets abound. Oh, and Shaughnessy thinks that the Sox ought to re-issue Clemens number to Beckett. I think he might be jumping the gun on his comparisons.
