R.E.M., Van Halen inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Here is the story. Seems like only yesterday we were all atwitter about Ozzy getting his wings.
Money quote: "... His replacement, Sammy Hagar, was fired in 1996 and returned for an uncomfortable reunion tour in 2004. Bass player Michael Anthony was ousted last year, replaced by Eddie's 15-year-old son, Wolfgang."
In case you're skeptical that a 15-year-old could play bass for Van Halen, have another listen to the bass part for "Running With the Devil."
Grandmaster Flash also got in.
Grandmaster Flash is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And, if I may anticipate Brando, Geddy Lee isn't.
