Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Swindle

 The most original thing Axl Rose has produced since 1992 was this letter declining the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction. Reminds me of Nick Cave’s elegant note to MTV in 1996 refusing its consideration for some accolade. Or better, the Sex Pistols diatribe, right, calling the HOF a “piss stain.” 
The HOF is a nonprofit that pays out a third of its revenue in salaries.  BTW, just to make sure this is clear, the director of the HOF, Terry Stewart,  in 2010 made $476,000 a year in salary and benefits, plus bonus. And the HOF has spent almost $3.5 million since 2007 on lobbying. What could it be lobbying for, government-made guitars? Here’s a brief investigative piece on the scam this operation is. Sadly, it does little good to point out, as the HOF still enjoys credibility in the eyes of some. Truly a Rock and Roll Swindle.
