The 34th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, was Friday, March 29, 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and EHM was there, BACKSTAGE covering all the action!
Ballots were sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians and members of the music industry. 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.
Three of the Inductees were on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks (as a solo artist) and Roxy Music. Additionally, the top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2019 Inductees. Four of the top five artists (Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, The Zombies and The Cure) from the fan ballot will be inducted as performers in 2019.
Smith outlined the genesis of their decision saying that they marked the anniversary’s of their first three albums in Australia and that they, “just wanted to do something to mark the anniversary of Disintegration because it obviously means a lot to me and a lot to the band.” Read more...
Simon LeBon and John Taylor of Duran Duran explained how they never would have formed their own group without the influence of Roxy Music, whose art-rock stylings and outrageous fashion made a huge impact on them as kids. As they inducted them into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame they cited WLIR radio specifically as one of the... Read more...

From Flea: “Before each new place my body tingled with excitement, a yearning for a new mystery to unfold, a fascination with a new culture, the possibility of new friends, tasting new food, smelling new tastes, absorbing new rhythms. Learning. Learning. Learning. It is happening again right now, my heart is abuzz with joy at the prospect of performing in Egypt. I’m so grateful and humbled for the impending experience.”
James Dolan had a guy tossed from MSG for being disrespectful... The fan heard in this video shouted to Dolan, "Sell the team," as he walked by. I bet he didn't expecet him to stop and have this exchange...
On one hand, this seems very petty and you'd think that James Dolan would have better things to do... BUT!!!! On the other hand, I do quite enjoy a good power wielding situation and thats what we got here... Including the ever popular power weilding move of just knodding to a big security guy in a suit with one of those walky talky things on his inner wrist.... #Impressive
According to TMZ, witnesses saw two cops and MSG security make their way to the fan and get his information. If you're wondering whether or not this turns into a lifetime ban, the New York Daily News, is reporting Garden reps said, “Our policy is and will continue to be that if you are disrespectful to anyone in our venues, we will ask you not to return.”
If you love Jenny Lewis and 3 hours of awkward comedy, then this is your lucky day! Jenny Lewis hosted a listening party for her new album and just about everyone stopped by including Beck, Mac DeMarco, St. Vincent, Jim James, Jeff Goldblum, and others! Seriously, its 3 hours of awkward uncomfortable humor, but if that's your thing... enjoy!
On The Line, Jenny's new album will be available on March 22nd, and as we learned from this special it will also be available on casette tape...
You’ll get a bunch of track previews and actually at one point, you can see Lewis filming a live music video for the track “Rabbit Hole.” You’ll also hear “Red Bull & Hennessy,” “Heads Gonna Roll”, “Wasted Youth”, and “Do Si Do”. The last track features Beck, who appeared during the stream to break down the song’s recording process.
The conversation of best cereal broke out after a brewery decided to make a brew made with Lucky Charms... A cereal I have been fighting against all my life. For years during childhood friends parents and distant relatives tried to shovel these "Marshmallows" (very loose definition of a marshmallow) down my throat and I've had to resist and persevere... Now I'm all grown up with a show and blog so here's you're Ol Pal Ants Top 5 Cereals!!
5. Honey Nut Cheerios
When that "You're going to have a heart attack soon" conversation with your doctor starts kicking in, you realize you should down shift from the cereals on the rest of this list to something a little more practical... And by more practical, I don't mean a cereal with less sugar, I mean a cereal with a heart association on the box... After all its not the Heart Associations fault you pour two bowls, am I right? I could also slide Raisin Brain Crunch in here (Not regular raisin brain, thats disgusting... Do I look like the kind of person that likes to read a wet newspaper? No, so why would I want my cereal that way?)
4. Oreo O's
Dipping actual Oreo's into milk for breakfast is savage disgusting behavior... Thankfully the folks over at Nabisco made a more acceptable way for us to consume Oreo's before 10am... Thanks Nabisco!!
3. Coco Puffs
I mean do I even need to explain why... OK its a blog, I do... It turns your boring average milk into chocolate milk. I mean, what other cereal gives you magical super powers?
2. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Love it... Crispy, Sweet delicious! Again, milk afterwards is a nice treat! But its the crunch that really shines here for me! Years later someone would tell me they offer a version called french toast crunch... Get that out of my face! You come at me with a box of french toast crunch and you're going to get it slapped out of your hands!
1. Cap'n Crunch Berries
When it comes to cereals there's only one captain... Just incase you thought I was an anti-fruitite (Its a rush to judgment but looking at my list I get it) Take this... The fruit cereal is number one for me? Why this one... One word my friends... BALANCE! Its got everything all those other fruity cereals have but more balanced! And the crunch, again, doesn't hurt! No sog here my friends... No sog at all!
