Mötley Crüe kicked as much ass as any band in the history of hard rock, and there will never be another band like them. Fans of all generations would be wise make it a point to catch Mötley Crüe on their farewell tour to experience an important moment in hard rock history.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame (RRHOF) has infuriated hard rock music fans for years with their selection process. Despite a groundswell of support from their millions of fans, KISS had to suffer the indignity of being passed over by the RRHOF for 15 years. During the course of the past decade-and-a-half, the RRHOF inducted a multitude of artists whose impact paled by comparison to the one made by KISS. In 2014, the wait to be inducted into the RRHOF will finally end for “the hottest band in the world.”
The Band (Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson, Robbie Robertson) was one of the most influential rock groups in the U.S. They gained notoriety as Bob Dylan’s backup band when he “went electric” on his controversial 1966 world tour. Their 1978 album and Martin Scorsese documentary “The Last Waltz” has been called one of the greatest live albums and concert films ever made.
