The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Announced its Inductees for 2009

As we all know, artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twenty-five years after their first recording is released. Now, normally, I don't really feel like an old broad. Then there are times like these when I do. Both Metallica and Run-D.M.C. are being inducted. Say wha? Has it really been that long? I still remember getting my first Metallica record. Next thing you know, I'll be yelling, 'get off my lawn you young whipper snappers!' to all the unruly kids who happen upon my property.

I want to know why "Fujiyama Mama" Wanda Jackson is the only early influence inductee. Surely they could have tossed in a couple more.

The performer inductees are:
  • Jeff Beck
  • Little Anthony & the Imperials
  • Metallica
  • Run-D.M.C.
  • Bobby Womack
Early Influence Category Inductee:
  • Wanda Jackson
Sidemen Category Inductees:
  • Bill Black
  • DJ Fontana
  • Spooner Oldham
The Induction Ceremony will air Live on Fuse TV, April 4, 2009
