    Top 10 Bands That Should Be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (But Aren't)

    in Music

    On March 15th, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct its class of 2010. Every year there are deafening complaints from rock fans about the bands that receive this recognition, many of whom are critical favorites that didn't get much fan support, while so many legendary bands that fans actually like get passed over year after year. So this year, to mark the occasion, we at Long Live Rock took a poll in which real rock fans - not elitist New York critics - voted for the bands they wish would get inducted. On the night before the induction ceremony we will be counting down our Top 10, along with commentary from some music industry insiders, and interviews with some of the band members of our Top 10 as to how the nomination and voting process works, and why it tends to exclude popular success. We'll also be taking listener calls, so call in and celebrate or debate the bands our listeners have chosen!

  • Timmon's Brothers Rock Historians The Rock ā€˜nā€™ Roll Hall of Fame An Overview

    in Music

    With the release of the next Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees, the Timmons Brothers reveal a list of names that could be labeled a Who’s Who in Rock ‘n’ Roll and all the artists share a common bond of not being inducted into its Hall of Fame. Although the number of artists not inducted  is too numerous to give them their due in one show, the two rock historians (David and John) will explore voting patterns, possible biases (and some may be surprising), the philosophy of defining a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and other music related hall of fames. The artists being ignored span four decades and include  Paul Anka, Connie Francis, the Moody Blues, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Chicago, Grand Funk Railroad , Jethro Tull, ELO, Kool and the Gang, and you are encouraged to call in with  others. While the topic stirs debate, this program will be a catalyst to continue the discussion.

    Jesse Frohman ,Kurt Cobain: The Last Session and so much more!

    in Pop Culture

    While earning a degree in economics at the University of Michigan, Jesse Frohman picked up a camera and never put it down. When he returned home to New York, he had no formal training or experience, but he did have a portfolio of platinum prints, which caught the interest of legendary photographer Irving Penn, who hired Jesse to manage his studio.Jesse has photographed countless celebrities and still lifes.His work is also in many private collections. Jesse lives and works in New York. And whilst he may have shot everyone from James Brown to Woody Allen, The Stroke to Diane Von Furstenberg for Vogue, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone, it’s his iconic portraits of Kurt Cobain, shot in New York in 93 that linger longest in the memory. One of Kurt’s last ever photoshoots before his untimely passing. It’s now being commemorated by ONETSHIRT for a new capsule collection On the 20th anniversary of his death, a powerful portrait of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana including many previously unpublished image taken during their last formal photo shoot . In August 1993, when Nirvana was in New York to perform at the legendary Roseland Ballroom, Jesse Frohman photographed them for the London Observer’s Sunday magazine Over the course of ninety photographs, Cobain seems an almost feral creature, by turns gentle, playful, defiant, suffering, or absorbed in his music. There’s a diverse range of shots of Cobain with fellow band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl and on his own, posing, performing, and greeting fans. Jon Savage’s original interview, which appeared with Frohman’s photographs in the Observer is also reproduced, giving us Cobain in his own words. The book is a touching tribute to Cobain twenty years after his tragic demise, and following Nirvana’s recent induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The book contains 90 illustrations, 25 in color.
