McStreamy.com – The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio, has announced the 2018 crop of musicians to be inducted into the Hall of Fame next spring. They are performers (top-left) Bon Jovi, (bottom-left) The Cars, (top-right) Dire Straits, (bottom-right) The Moody Blues, and (center-left) Nina Simone, plus (center-right) Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Tharpe is being recognized for being an early influence on rock and roll. Sister Rosetta became famous in 1938 with a record called “Rock Me.” She was a star through the 1940’s, a black woman singing gospel music to the accompaniment of her own driving electric guitar, howling and stamping. Her 1945 recording “Strange Things Happening Every Day” has been credited as the first gospel song to cross over to the “race” (later called “R&B”) charts, reaching Number Two and becoming an early model for rock and roll. She was a model and inspiration to Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and other rock stars, including the bands being installed in 2018. – McStreamy NewsBriefs
