The no, no, not at all pointless decision of who to induct to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for this year has been made.
Run DMC are in. Metallica are in. Jeff Beck is already in, as a Yardbyrd, but he's going in again. Commemorative Plates are going in. Little Anthony and the Imperials, Wanda Jackson, Bill Black, D.J. Fontana and Dewey Lyndon "Spooner" Oldham are all in.
Actually one of these might be something Stephen Fry put in to Room 101. My notes are confused. That little glut of brilliant musicians who haven't made it yet are interesting - almost as if the organisers are trying to suddenly perform some sort of museum curatorship role.
The ceremony will be back in Cleveland this year - although not, obviously, at the purpose-built building built for the purpose - and comes with a dreadful threat:
With such a wide-ranging group of musicians, fans can look forward to a spectacular jam at the end of the evening.
Leave early! Leave town! Metallica and the Reverend Run together jamming.
