The Ventures R&R Hall of Fame nom

I meant to post something about this before, but it slipped my mind. A hearty congratulations to The Ventures (who many people don't even realize were Seattle-based!!) who just received a nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

You can read more about The Ventures on wikipedia or their official site.

The obvious thing to do would be to post something featuring "Wipeout" or "Walk Don't Run." But, here's a video from my favorite tune of theirs, titled "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."

The Ventures should have been in the hall of fame years ago.

Absolutely agree.

The American Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame is a joke without The Ventures.The group have been around since 1958 - FIFTY years next year; have recorded best part of 200 albums and still have a rocking stage show. There are artists in the "Hall Of Fame" who have been around for five minutes.
