Steven Jones opened his radio show on Los Angeles Indie 103.1 on Friday with these words, "We're not going to the museum. You can shove it. You can have it," according to SexPistols.net.
Glen Matlock told The Independent on Sunday, "It's nothing to do with the bands - it's all to do with business. When I first heard about it I was quite excited... but then I found I was going to have to pay thousands of pounds to take my kids. It's just a big corporate event, a bunch of Herberts in suits... just a money-making opportunity for multi-million shysters."
And the most outspoken of the ex-Pistols John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten Posted his thoughts in a handwritten note on his official website on Friday. "Next to the Sex Pistols rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain. Your museum. Urine in wine. Were not your monkey and so what? Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery, goes to a non-profit organization selling us a load of old famous. Congradulations. If you voted for us, I hope you noted your reasons. Your anonymous as judges. but your still music industry people. Were not coming. Your not paying attention. Outside the s***-stem is a real Sex Pistol."
Hopefully, Black Sabbath who were passed over for years, will take a cue and tell the (c)Rock Hall where they can stick their induction too. Or at least Ozzy can pay the same honor to the (c)Rock Hall that he paid to the Alamo.
