    Shun, in my opinion, this is a bigger deal than the RRHOF. For one, it was a given our guys would get in, and two, they let just about anyone in. The Beastie Boys? Parliament Funkadelic? The Ronettes? These are bands that contributed, don't get me wrong, but it's not exactly an exclusive club.

    You know something, VA. I've actually never thought of it that way before. Looking at it now, this is a huge honor because they just don't put anybody in compare to the RRHOF.

    I think I was just saying we haven't had anything big like this (meaning a big honor) in a long time. That's why I brought up RRHOF.

    Thanks for all the replies. It looks a big deal. The US equivalent of our (UK's) honours list. Maybe even more exclusive.

    Is this going to be a reunion of the 7 or a bone of contention.

    Congratulations to the band and all the people that recommended them.

    I can't believe how much Joe's life has turned around in the last 20 odd years.

    From what I read, it sounds like just the current members. It could changed, but I doubt it.

    I wonder when the band heard about it. Didn't someone mention they seemed particularly happy at a recent show?

    L-O-N-G time coming but SO well-deserved! All of the info indicates it will be Don, Glenn, Joe and Timothy which surprises me a bit. But we don't know at this point what may go on behind the scenes with regard to Bernie, Randy and Felder. I guess all we can do is keep an ear to the ground regarding the 'formers'. I, for one, would like to see all of them honored although I'm sure there are those who won't agree. In any event, I'm so excited for them and all that it means. I also wonder if Linda Ronstadt put a bug in someone's ear! I know that a lot of us here on The Border have submitted them thru the years. Next stop: The Smithsonian!
