Dolly Parton gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, wow.


I love Dolly Parton. She's as they say 'is a national treasure'. Dolly is now going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because they know she'll get ratings on their HBO show. Apparently Iron Maiden couldn't deliver on that. I hate that the Rock Hall continues to use 'Rock and Roll' as part of their brand, misleading and duping us into believing they actually support the genre of rock music. They do not. Year after year it's continually about selling the show to HBO and future CD's and video stream sales with popular artists whether or not they perform rock music. I know this, yet every year it just gets to me how they slap the face of those who work, buy and believe in rock by exploiting the name. For years rock music has seen a decline in sales as it got pushed to the side by rap and pop music. Even our own (Gene Simmons) declared 'Rock is dead' yet still there are those of us who soldier on trying to make a living in the world of rock. Dolly tried to decline the nomination but now she finds herself in an impossible situation of standing on the stage to be inducted never having put out an actual 'rock' song. Once again rock gets pushed to the side. https://loudwire.com/fans-react-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-class-2022/
