I got a phone call today.
Yes I did.
Earlier in the week I suggested that he try and score tickets to the Rock Hall Induction Ceremony as I thought he was a Rock Hall member or might have had better connections than I do. He said he would see what he could do and get back to me.
Well being that good friend that Matt is, he went this morning and waited in line at the Rock Hall and picked up a pair of tickets. One for him…one for me.
I owe him a Dr. Pepper or something…
Chances are he’ll just put them on eBay to make a profit and not tell me until I am waiting at Public Hall for him to meet me there. That is how he rolls, no… not really. He is a good guy regardless of how much he pays me to be his friend.
A big THANK YOU to you Matt. That was the best phone call I received all day.
The following was taken from RockHall.Com:
On April 4, 2009, the Induction Ceremony will take place in Cleveland for the first time since 1997. The 2009 Induction Ceremony will be broadcast live on Fuse TV.
The performer inductees are:
Little Anthony & the Imperials
Early Influence Category Inductee:
Sidemen Category Inductees:
The 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performer inductees were chosen by the 600 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twenty-five years after their first recording is released.
In addition to being honored at the April ceremony, each inducted artist is commemorated at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland Ohio, which serves as a monument to rock and roll’s impact on our culture. These inductees will be honored – along with previous year’s inductees and hundreds of other artists – with an exhibit and film that serve to tell the story of modern music.
