Chicago’s Robert Lamm On Rock Hall: ‘It’s Not A Very Important Thing’
Join Chicago The Band Music Community
Don't blame Robert one bit. Whoever's deciding who goes in and who stays out doesn't appreciate music as most deserve.
they are 13th all time in Billboard chart HISTORY!!!!! good golly....... that means nothing to the R&R hall..well i refuse to go anytime until chicago is there!!!!!!
Maybe someone from the board at the RRHOF might get lucky enough to attend a Chicago concert and watch the band rock when performing "I'm a Man". If that is not worthy of the RRHOF, I don't know what is. Maybe I'll put a little clip together of Introduction, South California Purples, It Better End Soon, Free, While the City Sleeps, Feelin' Stronger Every Day, I've Been Searchin' So Long, Ain't It Blue, Scrapbook and Uptown and mail it to the election committee. Somebody at RRHOF needs to wake up and smell the coffee............but looking at recent inductees over the past few years, they probably won't. I'm with Mr. Lamm - what is important to me and thousands of others is to be able to continue to see Chicago live. Jimmy Pankow says it best at the beginning of Backstage Pass - "A Jazz Rock Band", i.e. a "Rock and Roll Band with Horns"...and the BEST EVER! Keep rockin' gentlemen. You've got my vote forever!
O.K. it is important but the editor of Rolling Stone magazine keeps blocking them each year, How long he
will continue this know one knows.
I was watching "Live with Kelly and Michael" this morning and Michael did not get a spot this year in the Football Hall of Fame. They showed a retrospective of his journey to the Super Bowl and it was very touching. However, despite Michael's disappointment, and after watching the clip, he acknowledged that he has had a great life. That made me think about Robert and his comments regarding the RRHOF. I certainly won't speak for Robert, but I think I hear him saying that it's the journey that has had the most impact on him. The legacy is not so much the culmination of a spot in the RRHOF, but the music that will live forever and the droves of people who still come out to see and hear the band over 45 years later. It's great to be recognized for work well done, but obviously, Robert doesn't need those accolades to consider himself successful in the music industry.
It's a Damm same too, you Guys are worth the nomination.

I will always love Chicago and would love to see them be inducted. If that happens,, We're going to Cleveland!! If not, oh well.
Admin, thank you very much for sharing the interview.
I came across this comment last night while I was on youtube that wanted to share with you:))))
“Chicago could have their own hall and decide which bands were good enough to meet THEIR high Standards”
thought it was a good one!!!:)
sending my luv ur way.
We love you and Chicago, Robert. As many of your fans already know, the RRHOF is political and also a business as former Monkee Mike Nesmith has pointed out in his Facebook posts. If Jann Wenner doesn't like a band, they don't get in. The Moody Blues is another great innovative band that isn't in, so you are in great company. Many other landmark artists like Linda Ronstadt-the best female rock performer in the 1970s, the Doobie Brothers, and Paul Revere & the Raiders have not been inducted.
