Brian Eno will not be at the RRHOF Induction Ceremony

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will happen this Friday and there is a minor announcement to mention in regards to those in attendance.

Roxy Music will be inducted and will be performing but it will not be a true reunion as Brian Eno and Paul Thompson will not be in attendance leaving Brian Ferry, Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera to represent the band.  

The group will be inducted by Simon LeBon and John Taylor of Duran Duran.

32. Brian Eno

As shown by our earlier and later inclusions we don’t have a problem listing artists (in varying capacities) twice. Already on this list as a member of Roxy Music, Brian Eno would probably be in our top five should we ever get around to listing producers but for now we will settle for a solid top fifty rank for his solo work.

Roxy Music

We wondered aloud if the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just plain forgot about our next selection. It is curious that with both the Velvet Underground and the Talking Heads enshrined that Roxy Music; the premier Art Rock band between them has not received a serious look for induction.
