2009 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremoney
« on: April 12, 2009, 06:16:54 PM »
Those inducted were Jeff Beck, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Metallica, Run-D.M.C., Bobby Womack, but that doesn't tell the story. This thing has been getting bigger and cooler over the years (if anyone remembers the awesome jam video of My Guitar Gently Weeps in honor of George Harrison, with Prince playing lead hot dog), and this year seemed more grandiose than ever. I'm going to focus on the Metallica side of things, that's where the main performing side of the show was anyway. Run DMC went in the same night, with Eminem of all people on hand to induct them. Unfortunately, Run DMC didn't perform, in continued honor of the late Jam-Master Jay.

Metallica, after being inducted (by Flea) and giving their speeches (including Ray Burton representing the late Cliff Burton), plays a two song set with both Robert Trujillo and former bassist Jason Newsted on bass!


This still blows me away, considering the history of this band. Anyway, there's practically something for everybody here, because then that line up jams on Train Kept 'a Rolling with fellow inductee Jeff Beck, featuring Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Ron Wood and Flea! Wow.

That's just ridiculous, if you're not at least a casual fan of someone in there, you probably don't like rock music. Anyway, I find it interesting that these HOF ceremonies keep getting bigger and better covered for media. It's a great opportunity to see musicians get together and play that usually wouldn't, and this was much cooler than any mainstream award show I've seen recently. Also, Kudos to Joe Perry for aging well. =)

It was good indeeed. All those musicians together, so much talen there. It was kind of odd to see Kirk and Lars wearing the suit and tie while playing.

On the part of James voice, he probably didn't warm up before the performance as he usually does. Thats the only common complants I've been hearing. But by Sandman, and the train song, he seemed to be doing pretty well.

I never seen anything like the finale. All those legends up there. It was pretty surreal.

congraduations Metallica!
