    UK Music Hall of Fame

    50's - Cliff Richard - I assume that's because they want someone still alive
    to show up for the award?
    60's - The Rolling Stones - Hmm, can think of a slightly better band from
    Liverpool.
    70's - Queen - fair enough.
    80's - Michael Jackson - UK?!
    90's - Robbie Williams - Who only left Take That halfway through that
    decade.

    A nice idea in concept, but what a load of rubbish.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    When Snow Patrol release a single that goes straight to number 39, and at number 2 is a song called "My Neck, My back (lick it)".. Makes you wonder about peoples judgement..

    Hey, at least Robbie Williams is good! Even though he's a pop icon (who are all supposedly manufactured), he has a damn good voice.

    The Beatles are one of the five artists who were selected as the five first inductees to the UK Music Hall of Fame. The other four artists were Elvis Presley, Madonna, Bob Marley and U2.

    Personally I can't believe that The Who were left out of the selection for the 60's. Other top bands like Cream were left out as well. I'd like to know who was on the selection panel cos' it's a bloody fix!

    Robbie Williams is good yes, but he didn't start as a solo artist till well over halfway through that decade.

    I don't think he should be penalised for getting his timing wrong... He's still pretty good tbh..

    Yes, but to be the act of the decade, shouldn't he at least have been there all decade?

    Not really... You don't necessarily need to be around all decade to make the biggest impact on it..
    Kerry Packer has arguably had the biggest impact on modern international cricket, and his circus was around for, what, 18 months?
