In today's Dirty Laundry Report, the list that is shaking up the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame! -LBF
Bill Wyman - not the Rolling Stone, the music critic - deemed Bon Jovi the worst, most undeserving act in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He says they "focus on hairdos and marketing", calls their induction "comical" and that they aren't in a rock band, they're "the guys in the MOVIE about the rock band."
I mean I was dancing to Bon Jovi's Never Say Goodbye at prom while wearing puffy sleeves and big hair!

He also calls Queen "overrated", Chicago "self-indulgent" and Kiss "pointless." The list is BRUTAL!
There shouldn't be a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The idea of a bunch of self-satisfied music-industry fat cats in tuxedos having rock stars assemble for a command performance in the Waldorf Astoria Ballroom once a year is precisely the sort of thing rock was created to be the antidote to.
Luckily my number one, Mr. Barry Manilow, did not make this list because my world would have been shattered! As a bonus, here's my favorite song of his:
"Even Now" from a show that has been described as superb and gorgeous. MANILOW: LIVE FROM PARIS LAS VEGAS casts Barry's catalog of hits in a whole new light in his critically acclaimed, hit-packed spectacle. Now is your chance to see the critically acclaimed show that had over 150 performances at PARIS LAS VEGAS.
