Quote from: Rock and Roll HoFYou've voted twenty five times for your favorite Nominees - don't stop now!
QuoteThere are various elements to take into account when it comes to an artist's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame candidacy.However, in the end, it really comes down to two things - significance (which is open to interpretation) and influence.
QuoteCongratulations to @TheCure on their induction. We're excited to welcome the post-punk innovators to the Hall of Fame and celebrate with fans. Find bios, special ticket access info, official merch + more here: http://bit.ly/2019Inductees-2
QuoteThe Cure, Janet Jackson, Radiohead Among Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees For 2019
QuoteAs with the nominees list, each year's inductees are determined by a voting group of "over 1,000" previous winners, historians and members of the music industry. Since 2012, the Hall has also included a fan vote, which has no practical mathematical effect on the outcome; the winning top five artists of the fan vote are compiled into a single ballot. That ballot is then factored into the total tally of 1,000-plus votes from the Hall's voting membership. Those members weigh factors "such as an artist's musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration," the Hall explains of the process.
Quote from: tanyasmith on December 13, 2018, 20:11:24It is funny that our fan votes have little influence over the big winner, but didn't we help keep The Cure as one of the top 5 inductees by voting each day?
QuoteAs Jon Landau, manager of Bruce Springsteen and chair of the Hall's nominating committee -- which numbers about three or four dozen -- told the Times seven years ago: "We've done a good job of keeping the proceedings nontransparent."
Quote from: tanyasmith on December 13, 2018, 20:11:24And doesn't the info you posted mean that The Cure could possibly win if the 1,000 music industry people vote them in?
QuoteThey're taking in you, Robert Smith, Porl Thompson, Perry Bamonte, Michael Dempsey, Simon Gallup, Boris Williams, Jason Cooper and Roger O'Donnell. Any mistakes? Did they get that right?Yeah. I don't really understand their criteria too much. It seems a little arbitrary in some respects. It would be nice to meet everyone again. A couple of those people I haven't seen in ages. That will be good.Do you think you'll all play together?I don't know. I'm sure I'll hear from Robert sooner or later about that. If we do, we do. If we don't, I'll be happy to sit there and watch what's going on.How often do you speak to Robert Smith these days?Last time I heard from him was probably three or four weeks ago. We're in contact from time to time, and me and Simon, and Michael I talk to quite a lot, and Porl Thompson from time to time and Boris Williams. I keep in touch. I'm sort of like the glue for the whole Cure family.
Quote from: tanyasmith on December 14, 2018, 18:48:44Oh I see. I thought there would only be one winner, but now I see that there are seven bands that will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I was just looking into going, but the show is in Brooklyn, and the last time I went to an award show for The Cure (1992 MTV Video Music Awards) they didn't show up!
QuoteIn that WKYC interview, Roger says the band will go into the studio in February to work on the new album. Also says the 2019 World Tour will probably end in South America, and they are talking about playing North American shows in the Autumn.
