RFT Hall of Fame

Postby lightnin » Tue Mar 20, 2012 9:32 am

The Riverfront Times, our local free weekly, is starting a St. Louis Music Hall Of Fame. No word on what this will actually mean...probably a list on their website and an occasional mention in the paper. It's a good idea, though.

"We are instituting an RFT Music Hall of Fame. Some form of this has existed in the past, but this will be ongoing -- each year we will select a handful of highly deserving mainstays and breakouts to enshrine. This year's inductees are listed after the rest of the categories..."

The first-year inductees:

The Urge
The Bottle Rockets
Pokey Lafarge & the South City Three
Soulard Blues Band
Midwest Avengers
Bunnygrunt
So Many Dynamos
Jay Farrar

The boys are also one of the "100 Greatest Musicians In St. Louis History" in the new issue of St. Louis Magazine.

For my money, you could leave off the 100.

Yeah, I agree with you guys.
They may have missed some others who deserve to be inducted in the first year...Chuck Berry comes to mind...
