    Default Jann Wenner is set to retire as chairman of the R&R Hall of Fame.

    Hmm. I wonder what does this mean for the future. I heard negative stuff about him not liking some artists and that's the reason why some are not in the hall. Will this change with the new chairman next year? Will those singers and groups finally be inductees.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Maybe the Monkees can get in now. I think it was Micky Dolenz who said that Wenner had a grudge against them that kept the Monkees out.

    Amen - Jann Wenner's personal feelings should never have been a criteria for which acts were inducted into the R&R HoF. However, his biases have become pretty well documented. At least, the Eagles were too successful to be denied by him.
