Former Rock Hall Director Claims Their Voters Know Too Much

(Classic Rock) The former director of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame says the induction process he helped set up works well. And contrary to claims the judges don't know what they're talking about, he insists they actually "know too much."

Terry Stewart bowed out of the Cleveland establishment in January after 14 years at the helm. Previously the head of Marvel Comics, he says the only thing bigger than his record collection is his graphic novel collection.

The Hall Of Fame will this year induct Rush, Heart and Albert King but also Randy Newman, Public Enemy and Donna Summer, while big names including Deep Purple, Kiss and Iron Maiden remain on the sidelines.

Discussing the constant controversy over their decisions, Stewart tells AL.com: "I've taken a lot of crap about Rush and Kiss. I've gotten Kiss nominated but they've never gotten in. Read their supposed criteria which should have seen Iron Maiden inducted their first year of eligibility.
