People shouldn't be surprised that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame committee headed by known blues hater Jon Landau would nominate such unknown artists as Little Walter, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, Chic, Afrika Bambaataa, and The Ventures over Stevie Ray Vaughan, who "Rollingstone Magazine" calls one of the ten greatest guitarists in history!

Landau is the same clown that tried to keep Eric Clapton out of the hall of fame and that called Eric Clapton an hack that uses old blues licks.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is an absolute joke without Stevie Ray Vaughan in it and Landau's history of nominating bands that were signed to his label or management over legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan is well chronicled. Boycott Landau and his hall of shame.

This year Landau argued that The Beastie Boys and RUN DMC should and were nominated, because they innovated music by combinig rap and rock. Vaughan innovated his own genre by combining blues and rock to invent his own "rocker blues" sound, which still influences bands around the world. You can't cut it both ways Mr. Landau without being a hypocrite!

Here's a guitarist that was every bit as good as Hendrix and Clapton and you don't vote him in the first ballot! Vaughan plays circles around every one of your nominees this year, unless Mr. Landau really thinks Donna Summer, who doesn't even play an instrument was a better musician than Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Everyone should boycott the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame until they nominate the most deserving musician that is now eligible, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The most telling part of Jon Landau's arrogance is that he said that most people aren't qualified enough to judge true musicianship, so they just don't understand why we nominate who we do. Mr. Landau, everyone gets it!!! You are clueless. Have fun listening to your Donna Summer records and to the earth shattering music of Little Walter, Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, Chic, and Afrika Bambaataa! Give me a break Mr. Landau, you ignorant, arrogant jerk! The combined influence and innovation of these guys combined and multipled by a factor of a million does even not begin to approach the influence and greatness of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Boycott Jon Landau and the pathetic joke called the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!!!!
