The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inducts Its First Members-This Day 1986

Nowadays its a joke. Everyone it seems has gotten into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but when they first opened in 1986 the first members were all legit. The first members [you become eligible 25 years after the release of your first record} were Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Ray Charles, Fats Domino and the Everly Brothers. The Sex Pistols got it right in 2006 when they refused to attend their induction ceremony calling the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a ‘piss stain.”
