“I’m so sad. This woman was the queen of disco and so much more. Her records sound as good today as they ever did. That she has never been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a total disgrace, especially when I see the second-rate talent that has been inducted. She is a great friend to me and to the Elton John AIDS Foundation and I will miss her greatly.” – Elton John, reacting to the death of Donna Summer.
Summer has been nominated to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame four times, including this year. I didn’t disagree with any of the 2012 inductees, but in previous years…yeah, I hear ya, Elton.
