I read a lot of news about Steve Miller and the Black Keys and the Hall of Fame induction that happened in my home town this past week. Yawn.
But looking at it a bit more closely there are two important streams of thought:
The Black Keys were pissed that Steve Miller didn’t really care who they were.
And Steve Miller pretty directly explained why the RnR HoF process is even stupider than those of us who only pay partial attention think it is.
So, Miller is an asshole for dissing the Black Keys and a hero for taking on the Rock ‘n’ Roll HOF foundation? I’m not sure how to do the math, but I personally give him a lot more credit for railing against the machine than I do the Black Keys dissing an artist.
