Joe Walsh Voices His Displeasure With Rock Hall Of Fame
Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh has alleged influence of corporate sponsors in picking entries to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
During an interview with TMZ, the 70-year-old musician lashed out at the unfair induction process.
Walsh, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame with the Eagles in 1998, said: “There’s a lot of politics in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There’s a lot us artists would change about the induction ceremony and who they pick.”
“The corporate sponsors get to pick [the nominees], and then the people get to vote. There’s a lot of people, I don’t know why they’re in there and there’s a lot of people, I don’t know why they’re not,” he added.
Walsh cited the example of Link Wray: “He had a song called “Rumble” in the ’50s, and all us guitar players wanted to be Link Wray. And he didn’t get in because nobody knows about him.”
