    Thoughts?

    Former Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Abbruzzese Responds to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snub

    http://loudwire.com/former-pearl-jam...-of-fame-snub/

    Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese isn’t happy about being left out of the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination. Rather than going after the Rock Hall, Abbruzzese has challenged Pearl Jam to speak up against the “injustice.”

    Dave Abbruzzese played on two of Pearl Jam’s most essential records: Vs. and Vitalogy. The percussionist also performed during the band’s Ten tour after the departure of Matt Chamberlain.
    His three-year tenure with Pearl Jam ended in 1994, but Abbruzzese believes he should be alongside Rock Hall nominees Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Matt Cameron
    and Dave Krusen. Chamberlain and fellow former drummer Jack Irons was also left off Pearl Jam’s Rock Hall ballot.

    “It’s just a fine opportunity to see what Pearl Jam has to say in response,” Abbruzzese wrote on Facebook.
    “Let’s see if they do the right thing. It’ll be interesting to see the spin that is put on it. That band and its management
    have never been ones to shy away when an injustice is done. Let’s see if they still have the courage to fight the good fight!”
    The drummer added, “I’ve seen them change a 15 year old settlement agreement just by ignoring its contents and withholding
    money that didn’t belong to them in order to force me to accept the changes. They know how to play the game…their way! …
    The members of Pearl Jam have got to know what’s the right thing to do. They can’t justify ignoring my contributions. Like me or not.”
    It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.

    The Rock Museum is fantastic; the Rock selection criteria is crap. If baseball had the same standards, Ron Cey and Frank Tanana would be in the hall. Dave Clark 5? Heart? But not the Cure or the Smiths?
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    It's embarrassing that Journey was inducted.

    Their current surge of popularity is based entirely in irony, right?

    The hall itself is in Ohio but the concerts are in cities where artists and industry types live or actually will travel to.

    It's the second-worst voting result in the US this year.

    Apparently it's been in Cleveland four times since the hall opened in 1995 and will be there in 2018 and 2020, if this site is to be believed.

    Meanwhile, I always think of this classic when the HOF comes up.
