Madonna, rock ‘n roll giant? Not so much… yet she headlines the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2008. Rolling Stone last week reported the list: Madonna, the Beastie Boys, the Dave Clark Five, Leonard Cohen, Afrika Bambaataa, John Mellencamp, Donna Summer, the Ventures, and Chic. Five acts will make it into the Hall of Fame in 2008. This year’s nominees had to release their first single no later than 1982. I’m rooting for the Ventures.
