Today on American Idol, Ryan Seacrest announced who are this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees.

The music Performer inductees are Cher, Mary J. Blige, Dave Matthews Band, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & The Gang, Ozzy, and A Tribe Called Quest.

The Musical Excellence Award will go to the late Jimmy Buffet, MC5, Dionne Warwick, and Norman Whitfield.

And finally, the Musical Excellence Award goes to Alexis Korner, John Mayall, and Big Mama Thornton.

Cher and Dionne Warwick have been vocal that they don’t need the honor. So, it will be interesting to see if they will accept their honor on October 19th.

If I were the legendary ladies, I would hold a competing concert in Cleveland. Just to show RRHOF why you don’t ignore Divas. And they should feel the wrath of Mariah Carey soon because even though she was nominated, she is not an inductee this year.

Dionne Warwick was supposed to play Rivers Casino Des Plaines in Illinois on June 24th, but she was forced to cancel the performance due to a “medical incident.”

According to TMZ, the “medical incident” is related to her having an undisclosed problem with one of her legs. The 82-year-old singer told the website that she is already on the mend.

Hopefully, she will be better soon and on her way to San Jose and the other cities on her tour.


A ’70s music fan’s wet dream: Charo, Barry Manilow and Dionne Warwick

Back in the ’70s, everyone was doing the Cuchi Cuchi to Charo, Barry Manilow, and Dionne Warwick. However, they weren’t doing it at the Copacabana. Instead, they were doing it in their bedrooms because that was the only location where they could hear the three of them in the same place.

And as often as they would say a little prayer to make the three of them be in the same room, it never happened. But someone said a big prayer, and we have a lineup that would make The Love Boat wet.

That is because the three singers met up at Carnegie Hall, and we just get to bask in the glory of their enormous talent. And wishin’ and hopin’ that they were talking about either releasing a song or going on tour together. I would pay bucks to see them on a weekend in New England or anywhere they perform live.

Imagine the stories these legends could tell. It is stuff that Manilow writes songs about.


Dionne Warwick is ready to fall in love with Pete Davidson

Pete Davidson is working his way around the female celebrity circuit, and there is a woman who is throwing her hat into the ring.

Dionne Warwick has declared, “I will be dating Pete Davidson next.”

I say that he should take her up on his offer because she can teach him a thing or two that those other girls he has been with can’t. When the singer is done with him, he will be ready to settle down. Something I am sure would make his mother very happy!


Dionne Warwick doesn’t care about being nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

On Monday, Dolly Parton bowed out of her nomination to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame because she says she is not worthy of the honor. Shortly after that, Dionne Warwick told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she is also not interested in being inducted because she is not a Rock’n’Roller.

Warwick then went on to say they should rename it the Music Hall of Fame so musicians of all genres would feel welcome. And I think she has a point. Of the five musicians that are currently in the lead, only Pat Benatar is a Rocker. Duran Duran and Eurythmics are New Wave, Parton is Country, and Eminem is Rap.

So, if Dolly dropped out, does that mean that Judas Priest, who are Rockers, will be inducted instead? The Rock & Roll Foundation released the below statement:

All of us in the music community have seen Dolly Parton’s thoughtful note expressing her feeling that she has not earned the right to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to her incredible talent as an artist, her humility is another reason Dolly is a beloved icon by millions of fans around the world.

From its inception, Rock and Roll has had deep roots in Rhythm & Blues and Country music. It is not defined by any one genre, rather a sound that moves youth culture. Dolly Parton’s music impacted a generation of young fans and influenced countless artists that followed. Her nomination to be considered for induction into to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame followed the same process as all other artists who have been considered.

Dolly’s nomination, along with the other 16 artists for the class of 2022, was sent out earlier this month to our 1,200 general ballot voters, the majority of whom are artists themselves, for consideration for induction at our ceremony.

We are in awe of Dolly’s brilliant talent and pioneering spirit and are proud to have nominated her for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

So, I guess the answer is yes. Therefore, we will have to see if she is inducted, will she show up to the party.

I know of one band, who almost didn’t show up because they were expected to pay for their tickets and were encouraged to buy a table. It is not that they didn’t have the money, they were against it in principal. If only I knew then to tell him how my friend paid to accept his Tony award, an award that wasn’t even presented on television.
