If you dig pop music, you should check out the 2014 Rock and Roll Induction Ceremony. I watched the first hour or so last night and plan to watch the rest today. It is playing and re-playing all day on HBOSIG. That’s Channel 808 on AT&T Uverse. I don’t know about Comcast. The segment on Peter Gabriel is great and the singers substituting for Linda Ronstadt are wonderful. (Emma Lou Harris; Cheryl Crow, Bonnie Rait and a couple of others whose names I didn’t get). You can see KISS: four old guys without makeup talking and looking like refugees from the Rotary Club. But, they managed to produce some of the wildest, craziest entertainment ever seen. I’m not sure it was music but gazillion people all over the world got off to it.
