Rock Hall Inductees Announced

Let's hope the Clash plays!


_____________________________________________

Cleveland


Police, AC/DC To Join Rock Hall Ranks

November 7, 2002


Three British exports from rock's "new wave" of the late 1970's; The Police, The Clash, and Elvis Costello and the Attractions; will join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year.

They'll be inducted along with the "blue-eyed soul" singing Righteous Brothers and Australian hard rockers AC/DC.

The 18th annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place March Tenth in New York. The hall is in Cleveland.

As is often the case with the rock hall, the ceremony has the potential for some tense reunions in tuxedos. Costello feuds with Attractions bassist Bruce Thomas, and both The Police and The Clash had bitter breakups.

Additional inductees in the "sidemen" and non-performer categories will be announced later.

I want nothing less than a full set from the police at the ceremony.

What a thought...the Clash playing live again...

I'd do just about anything to see THAT!

The only album that I love more than "Achtung Baby" is "London Calling." They were a magnificent band, and I was lucky enough to see them several times during the early 80's. One of the BEST bands EVER...

WOW! That's a great bunch of inductees. I like all of 'em. A Police reunion would be so cool. I hope it happens.

I wonder if Bono will be doing one of the induction speeches? I could easily see him doing it for the Clash, the Police or Elvis Costello. How do they choose who gives the induction speeches anyway? I've never been clear on that.

Kickass inductees, I just hope the E Street Band makes the cut in the "sidemen" category.

Yeeeaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought the official announcement would not come until December, and it would be 7 out of the 15! Its AWESOME to see the Police on this list! I hope there is a reunion! First time playing in public since June 15, 1986! Sting's recording his new album so he should not have a problem getting out there to play with Stewart and Andy. Their all still friends unlike some other bands, although playing live together or going on tour is not something the Police have done unlike many of these bands that have long since broken up! WOW, GREAT NEWS!

I read somewhere that Stewart Copeland confirmed that the Police will play together at the induction ceremony. Now we just need for them to launch a reunion tour. Stewart and Andy want to do it. Just need to convince Mr. Sting LOL Might be difficult.

LOL I just went to the Rock Hall on Thursday...and they show a film of some of the induction ceremonies. Bono's induction speech for Bob Marley was fantastic...and hilarious..."Sha-MON, Jah-MON, Soul-MON, Jamaica-MON, Rita's MON..."

They were rotating the music played over the PA in the museum store....The Police and the Clash, back and forth. A little tip-off, I guess!
