Eclectic? More like gone to the dark side like, this cancer infects everything in life, keep healthy and follow the caution warnings. Funny thing is that I never knew there was a LI Music HOF, is it located on a Roosevelt street corner? Inside of a bodega in New Cassel?

It was great when artsist like Public Enemy and before them the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young used their incredible talents to express Americans dissent through great music.

Now if you say a bad word about a president as unpopular as George Bush they boo you off the stage at the Nassau Colisseum (pearl jam) or boycott your albums (dixie chix).

LI is getting dumber by the day, but we did have great times back in the old days.

Rizzo are you saying PE is a rich rap group riding around in Limos? What really what makes you think PE was rich when they wrote Fight The Power? I bet their songs spoke more to you and your way of life then you would care to admit here on this board. They were middle class kids probably a lot like you once were. Just your use of a name Frank Rizzo, from the jerky Boyz, speaks volumes as to your place is American society. I bet you were one of those white kids who loved rap and now that your getting into your mid 30's, you have nothing but anger and resentment, and a poor education to fall back on so you go with the lowest common denominator, and that is fear. Your afraid. So you make dumb comments on a message board trying to bring people down to your ignorant level. Nothing complicated and nothing new. Go pull your tape deck out of the garage and listen to those great prank calls from the Jerky Boys for the millionth time while the rest of teh world passes you by. You are useless.
