IF SEGER'S IN... The long-list ballot for this year's Rock Hall of Fame arrives this week, and the list of potential new nominees is here. Obviously, Nirvana is a lead pipe cinch for induction in this first year of eligibility, but after that, it gets interesting--does Massive Attack make the cut to be the first electronica artist in? Does Melissa Etheridge get in as much for political activism as for the music? Does Morissey get in as a solo artist when The Smiths have never been nominated? Does Phish get in? Tracy Chapman? Do the Traveling Wilburys get in, given than 4/6 members are already in for other work? Much to discuss.
