About Ruddy Time!!!

Black Sabbath to enter Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame. Whit? It's taken until 2006 for the Sab to gain entry to that old dump? These four Brummie gents, without whom generations of American youth would have grown up listening to Perry Como or something, have only just set foot in what is meant to be the pantheon of modern popular music. I know they only have a handfull of inductees a year, but surely Sabbath would have been a no brainer at least ten years ago? no? Ok, maybe it's me........ I see that The Sex Pistols are to be inducted too............I'd love to see Mr Lydon on hand to accept this accolde but something tells me it'll be Fatty Jones and Glen Matlock. Matlock incidentaly appeared recently with comedy punk band The Paddingtons at the opening of a plaque commemorating something or other to do with "Punk". Maybe it commemorated the time Steve Jones...

Thankyou Clairwil. I had assumed they were already in that god awful institution...........

My reference to Steve Jones, for those not au fait with punk lore is to do with a semen filled butty consumed by the hapless Mr Matlock in 1976, or thereabouts. If you must have a plaque to commemorate a punk event.............
