Right now, a band (or solo artist) must have been in the business at least 25 years since their first record release. Now, there's word that the charter may change to 20 years. Why? So bands like Guns n' Roses and Nirvana can get in sooner. For what it's worth, BOTH those bands deserve a spot in the hall, but they can wait their due time - especially since there's so many bands that have already met the current charter and have been passed over (and over and over...)
So, what do you think? Is this a sad cop-out or a good idea?
