i tweet the hall of fame concert


This list is not complete … I’m guessing at a lot of this … but here are the artists who are 1) in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 2) alive and healthy, and 3) weren’t on the HBO special:

Chuck Berry (he’s 83, so I guess I can cut them some slack on this one); Bob Dylan; the Beach Boys; Tina Turner; Booker T. & the M.G.’s; the Isley Brothers (might be too sick to play?); Etta James; Van Morrison; Al Green; Martha and the Vandellas; Neil Young; the Allman Brothers Band; David Bowie; Gladys Knight and the Pips; Joni Mitchell; Fleetwood Mac; Santana; Paul McCartney; Earth, Wind & Fire; Solomon Burke; Steely Dan; Brenda Lee; AC/DC; Elvis Costello; Prince; the Pretenders; R.E.M.; Ronnie Spector; Leonard Cohen; Madonna; Run-D.M.C.; Wanda Jackson.

Here are some of the artists who WERE on the show:

James Taylor; Sting; Billy Joel.
