MC5 React To Latest Rock Hall Nomination


(Radio.com) MC5 and a legion of admirers are hoping the second time will be the charm for the revolutionary and revolution-minded rockers from Michigan, when it comes to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

The group was on the ballot once before, in 2003, surviving members Wayne Kramer and Dennis "Machine Gun" Thompson say they would be happy to participate when the Rock Hall's class of 2017 is inducted during April at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"I had a vision for the band when I started it, and being in a hall of fame was never part of it but it's a good thing to be recognized for your work," guitarist Kramer tells Billboard.

"The band never achieved great commercial success and wealth and any of that, but I think our contribution was significant. I don't want to get ahead of myself. I guess I'll have to leave it up to the people, all my musicians, all my brothers and sisters that work in the amusement industry to recognize the significance of the MC5 which they always have. The musicians have always been the band's greatest champions." Read more here.
