Several Classic Rock Artists’ Work Inducted into Grammy Hall of Fame

Several of my favorite classic rock artists are being honored by having their work inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame!

I know after the whole Jethro Tull/Metallica debacle at the Grammy Awards in 1989, many people have discredited the Grammys, but I still watch and now, I think they may be gaining their credibility back.

Works from George Harrison, Rolling Stones and U2 are being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

George Harrison’s epic three disc set, All Things Must Pass made the honor roll, as did the Stones’ Honky Tonk Women because, hello. Those opening cowbell notes are just unmistakable! The Grammy HoF is also honoring one of my favorite U2 albums, The Joshua Tree. Also worth noting, though I am embarrassed to even admit this, the version of Walk This Way that I love with Aerosmith and Run DMC is also being recognized. I remember hearing that version over and over and over on the radio when it first came out and then hearing the original again and thinking, “Well, this is a boring song!” Creedence Clearwater Revival is also being honored not once, but twice. Once for Fortunate Son, the other for their album Cosmo’s Factory, which was the first actual compact disc my parents ever purchased.

To be eligible, recordings must be at least 25 years old and be “of lasting qualitative or historical significance.”
