It's the most wonderful time of the year. Family and friends, egg nog and tinsel, chestnuts and open fires, and of course, those heartwarming discussions about the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
"Steve Miller hasn't made a good record since Sailor!"
"N.W.A. isn't rock and roll!"
"Adele is our generation's Mirabai."
Yeah, I don't care too much about any of it to get worked up. I am happy when people I like get in and if they don't, they don't. But I am over the moon for Cheap Trick, a band I have loved since their debut And Cheap Trick are now 2016 inductees into the RNRHOF.
Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson and good ol' Bun E. Carlos, congratulations.
Listen to something other than their hits today.
