                                     Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 Induction Ceremony Written by Josh Jackson

                                    For the second year in a row I was invited to work as the script supervisor for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions and of course, I obliged. I always love hearing my friends tell me to make sure to tell someone to induct __________ (insert favorite rock group) into the Hall. (Usually KISS or RUSH) I’m not sure exactly how the nominations go about, and while I have my own feelings about some of the great groups that have been left out (Eagles, Heart, Journey & oh so many more), I was fairly satisfied with this years group of inductees.

                                        Mike Arnold and James Downing of Concert Blast were on hand to record a concert review audio podcast on the evening.  Since Brian Hasbrook and Tom Thompson were out of town, they invited one of their friends to join them as a special guest host,  singer/songwriter/performer Donna Frost.  During the concert review discussion, long-time Concert Blast friend Sue Street joined them for the discussion.
