So, who will induct Journey?

Postby livin2do » Fri Dec 30, 2016 3:50 pm

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame seems to pull from two pools of people when determining who should induct their new honorees. First, they tend to look at people who are enshrined themselves already, peers who can speak to their experiences with the band. Second, they also will look at newer, emerging artists who are popular now, who can talk to the influence the band may have had on them. There have been impressive, heartfelt tributes seen at times, and a backfire or two along the way. I loved seeing how psyched Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins were to induct Rush. The most obvious misfire I can think of was the Black Keys inducting Steve Miller.

So, who should induct Journey? The best person I can come up with is Sammy Hagar. His connections with the band have been numerous, and he continues to work with Neal from time to time also. Anyone have any better ideas?

Carlos Santana, Neal's mentor. I'm sure he's proud.

This would be a good choice. I wish that the bands could choose who inducts them. Some of the choices are just stupid.

No I agree with you: Sammy Hagar. Carlos was Neal's and Gregg's mentor, but didn't (not to my knowledge anyway) have anyone else from Journey he was involved with? Am I wrong?

Randy Jackson. He was once part of the band, and is respected in the industry.
But I also like Sammy and Santana as options.

It would be cool to see Sammy induct them. They might go the route of having someone more current such as-Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty), Chad Kroeger (Nickelback), or Chris Daughtry. I know Jon Bon Jovi was influenced by Journey and Steve Perry, coining him "The Voice".

Who knows though, it will be interesting to see what happens....

A hologram of Sam Cooke should induct Journey into Hall of Fame.

Has a manager ever been inducted? If not, Herbie should be the first. No Herbie No Journey.

I could see this being a way for the ROR HOF to keep up annual inductions as they run out of great bands to include. Managers, producers, engineers, album cover artists, etc. The annual ceremony would obviously be different, but it would give people more to see when they visit the actual HOF.

Think it needs to be somebody BIG. How about Clapton? Neal's told the story of having had the choice - at age 15 - of either touring w/ Clapton or joining Santana. If he had chosen Clapton, there may never have been a Journey.

Not Clapton! He has slighted Neal more than once. Frankly, I think Clapton has been jealous of Neal. Neal could play Clapton's stuff better than Clapton.
