Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes Score Epic Night at Rock Hall of Fame

Quote:
The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony featured Steve Perry's first onstage appearance with Journey in 26 years (even though he didn't actually sing), a Yes reunion with Rush's Geddy Lee on bass, a moving tribute to Tupac Shakur and the first performance of Pearl Jam's original lineup since early 1991. But it was David Letterman, a last-minute replacement for Neil Young and the only non-musician of the evening to speak, that summed up the feeling of the event best. "When I came here for rehearsals, I was reminded what a gift live music is," he said while inducting Pearl Jam. "Never take live music for granted."

The capacity crowd at Barclays Center shared that sentiment, especially the army of Pearl Jam fans who let out an enormous roar whenever the camera went anywhere near Eddie Vedder.

AiC and STP hold up better for me in many regards. Maybe it was just over-saturation with the others.....

It's a tough call for me, I'm a huge fan of all of them. The 90s had such great music.

The last great decade for music. It's all been downhill since boy bands and Britney Spears became popular and new music became geared towards kids. That's why you have all of these sh1tty teenage pop stars like Selena Gomez or Arianna Grande.

True, but I think there is still a ton of really good music today. It just takes a little bit of digging.

Pearl Jam is great but their best stuff from TEN never hit the airwaves. Jeremy is probably the worst song on the whole album. Of course music is relative and to each his own.

I'd be shocked if Alive and Evenflow weren't top 10 on billboard.

I guess they aren't part of the best stuff that never was played on the radio? What is the best stuff from Ten?

As I said in my post music is opinion, not a f'ing billboard. I've see absolute JUNK make the top ten billboard because they push it so hard to the masses.

Just like your opinion that Nirvana was better followed closely by the Little River Band. I disagree strongly but that is your opinion.
