The 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony aired this weekend and although I am not a huge fan of any of the inductees (with the exception of Ringo Starr), I thought this year’s group of inductees represented a nice cross section of music. Not knowing a whole lot about a couple of the inductees, The 5 Royales or The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, I enjoyed learning more about their music and the influence each had on the music scene. What I particularly enjoyed about the show was hearing each inductee’s speech. Many of the speeches gave sincere thanks to the Rock Hall and to the fans and conveyed their sheer love of music. I loved seeing the admiration of the artists who were presenting the awards as well. In some cases, it was a new generation of rocker presenting to a veteran, and in others, it was a peer. In either case, there’s no denying that no matter age you are or what type of music you prefer to listen to, music really touches the lives and souls of people and that’s why so many of us love it.
