GRAND FUNK RAILROAD singer Mark Farner was asked how it feels to see various rap and hip-hop artists inducted into theRock And Roll Hall Of Famebefore the band he co-founded more than five decades ago. He responded "Well, it just shows the illegitimacy of that Rock Hall. And the people are definitely smart enough to know this. They need to be reminded, though, that theRock Hallis not a representation of the will of the people; it is a representation of the will of the owners of the Rock Hall. That's what it is, and it is super political.
