REM, Van Halen, Patti Smith and others elected into R n R HOF

It's just been announced that REM, Van Halen, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and The Ronettes have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. The ceremony will take place 3/12/2007. I used to be a huge VH fan as well as a huge REM fan, so I'm very happy that they both got in. This is a great way to start off the year in music. I can't wait to see Dave, Sammy and Eddie all together in the same room.

Hopefully we'll see a full REM line up that night! Maybe a collaboration with REM and Patti Smith...

As far as seeing Dave and Sammy together, I'm not sure how it works but in order to be elgible you need at least 25 years from your first release, so I don't know how that works for Sammy.

It's 25 years from the first release, but I don't think it matters if there has been different personnel involved at any given time. Ron Wood was allowed to be inducted with the Stones and he hadn't been with them for 25 years.

Sammy is good to go! Sammy might've joined VH in 1985/6, but VH started in 1978, so Sammy will be inducted as a part of VH.

I'm also sure that, indeed, Bill Berry will be joining REM when they are inducted into the R n R HOF. Unlike Sammy, Dave, and Eddie, REM and Berry have no problems between them. Berry has performed with REM numerous times since he officially left the band in 1997/8.

If Roth appears at the induction, Sammy will be at the Cabo Wabo Cantina on that night. No way they'll grace the stage together.

They toured together several years ago, so it's not a stretch to see them together. They both deserve to be there.

Strange though that U2 got in ahead of Patti Smith?

That would be cool if R.E.M. and Patti Smith got to perform together.

Cool, indeed! Maybe REM will come back strong as a result of this induction. I haven't really cared about them since 2001 or so.

Yeah but if you've read some of Sammy's comments towards the end of that tour and since, he wants nothing to do with DLR.
