I Venture to say that this just isn't rightposted by The Vidiot @ 8:30 PM Permalink UPDATE part deux: Hello to all of SteveAudio's fans, (which include us!)
UPDATE: Hello fellow denizens of Blogtopia! (y, wksctp!)
Why Aren't The Ventures in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!?
The Ventures are still touring with the surviving original members and have sold 110+ million albums worldwide. They are the biggest selling instrumental rock & roll group of all time. They've influenced everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Joe Satriani to countless players who didn't have a clue as to who helped forge their style.
So I'm instituting the 1st ever vidiotspeak drive ... no, not for something as crass as $$, but to get The Ventures into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame*
I would hope that you Walk, Don't Run
or better yet click your way to this petition to help enshrine them in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
When you do sign the petition I'd like it if you'd come back and leave a comment.
*Yeah, I know there are bigger problems in this country and the world, (I write about them most every day, I need a break), and while I can't indict Karl Rove or correct the vote count in Florida or Ohio, or stop Bush from invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, maybe I can help The Ventures get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And if you have a problem with that ... well excuuuse me!
