On getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

By Daniel Engber

On Monday, 15 rock 'n' roll musicians (including Bono, Chrissie Hynde, and Percy Sledge) were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. An edited, taped version of the event at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City will air this Saturday onVH1. How does a rocker get selected for the Hall?

First, he (or she) gets nominated by a committee, and then gets voted in by an international panel of more than 700 "rock experts." Who are these people? The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Web site says that the committee is composed of "rock and roll historians," but neither foundation officials nor former committee members would answer questions about how one becomes an official rock expert or historian. Explainer contacted several prominent academics who study the history of rock 'n' roll, none of whom had been invited to serve on the committee.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
