THE POLICE: nominated for 2003 Rock Hall of Fame!

The Police are among 15 nominees for this coming year's 2003 Rock Hall Of Fame. About 7 of the nominees will be inducted in December. The official celebration with performances will be in the Spring. This is the first time the Police have been nominated and the first year they were eligible. Other nominees this year include The Clash, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, ABBA, Chic, Kraftwerk, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, The Dells, MC5, The Righteous Brothers, The Patti Smith Group, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Steve Winwood.

The Police and the Clash are the only artist that are considered to be a lock for this year's inductees. Perhaps we will see the first Police performance in public since June 15, 1986 at GIANTS STADIUM, sometime in the spring of 2003 at the awards. Sting is currently about to go into the studio to record a new album which should come out sometime next year.

Perhaps we'll get to see a fist fight between Sting and Stewart as well.
I saw the Giants's Stadium performance.
Wonder who'll induct them?
(And WTF does ABBA have to do with Rock and Roll?)

Elvis Costello and The Clash deserve this 10 billion times as much as The Police, who aren't Hall of Fame material. But EC and the Clash are two of the most important artists of the 20th century.

I have everything by the Police in addition to 10 boots. I have everything by the Clash in addition to a few concerts. I like both of them but in my opinion the Police are better. I have no idea where you get off saying that one is 10 billion times better than the other or that the Police are not hall of fame material, certainly a minority opinion there. After U2, the Police are my favorite band. I'm happy that they will be recognized by the Hall of Fame most likely in their first year of nomination!

I did not say that "one is 10 billion times better than the other." I said the Clash deserve it 10 billion times more (although the Clash, in my view, is also the far superior band.) In terms of which band contributed more to the development of music and which was more visionary, the bands are in completely different leagues. There is simply no comparison.

That said, I think Elvis Costello trumps them both.

true.

i'm just glad both bands are very likely to be inducted in 2003!

Mug22,

I understood what you said, I still feel the Police deserve it more. A poll of 500 musicians on VH1 rated the Police higher than the Clash or Elvis Costello, but thats still just a colective opinion. I love both, but the Police are my favorite after U2. Most media see the Police as this year's frontrunner, but will see what happens. Not everyone gets in the first year they are nominated. But 7 out of the 15 nominees will be inducted this year, which means The Police, Elvis Costello, and the Clash should all get in.

well, not flamed but... what have you got against Skynyrd? Great band, certainly worthy of induction.

Completely crappy seats...at the other end of the stadium (I have the stub at home, don't remember exact section), but I doubt I made any audience shots on MTV from where I was.
