…OTHERWISE WE ARE LEFT HOPELESSLY CONTEMPLATING the ever worsening news about Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant disaster. (The nuclear plant situation is being live-blogged by the WaPo’s Elizabeth Flock. Also, try following @norishikata on Twitter.)
The new inductees were Tom Waits, Dr. John, Darlene Love, Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond and Leon Russell—all wonderful artists.
But since Tom Waits and Dr. John are 2 among the 10 whose music I would need with me on a desert island or at the end of the world, it is their videos I’ve posted.
Waites put it well when Neil Young inducted him: “They say I’m difficult and I have no hits. And they say that like it’s a BAD thing!”
