When was JA inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame?

Was Grace there for the induction? Did they sing?

Please don't tell me they have not been inducted !!!!!!!!!!

JA in Hall of Fame...

They were inducted in 1996, but Grace was not there.
I heard that Jorma played "Embryonic Journey" at the ceremony.

Yes, they did Crown of Creation and Embryonic Journey.
For Crown, one of Paul's female singers (I think it was Mangano) is WAY in the back.
Jorma's solo version of "EJ" is included in the Fly JA DVD.
Get it!

This is her legacy.

Grace has stated on several occasions that “no one wants to see an old lady on stage singing rock and roll songs.â€

And for those who haven't had the pleasure of seeing Jorma and company recently - that's Barry Mitterhoff playing with him in Dave's pictures!
Another great set, judging by the setlist Jorma provided on his site - and the first time he played at that place. Evidently, Dave got there 3 days in advance - to be so close!?!?
I treated my sister and her husband to an acoustic Tuna show in Colorado recently - their first experience. They were blown away - particularly noting that that despite Jorma and Jack's age, they still had it!!
But my brother-in-law was quite perplexed that Jorma is allowed to "cheat", and he whimpered something about his not being allowed to get away with that - in his band... I didn't have any idea what he was referring to????
It's that music stand - with song notes and/or lyrics in front of Jorma...

Yeah. I'm convinced that Myron, Jorma's guitar tech/roadie, has standing instructions to find out where I'm sitting and make sure the stand is in-between me and Jorma's guitar :!:

Yeah, you should have seen the grief someone gave me for using a music stand in this photo:

Hey, we're all getting older. You know what they say, when you get older, the first two things to go are your memory and ... uh ... I forgot the other thing.

Sorry, the hyperlink to Shutterfly doesn't work because it is missing the "http."
But if you copy and paste into your browser, it will automatically add the "http."

In a bar ,dimmed lights ,typical smell of smoke &beer

Good music ,good conversation.....etc. etc.
That's it !....every weekend ?...Yes! Sir!...
If i had a Lear Jet.......some $$$......
Fantasy & reality ,seems to be different things.

Well, the place IS a bar, why not arrive a few days early? :twisted:

Look what the cat dragged in...

Yeh - and all that stuff you posted the next day about Hot Tuna really being a quartet, because Jorma sounds like he plays 2 guitars at the same time - so that's why you couldn't vote for them as a trio...
Sounded like the B.S. I've tried on the wife, stumbling in at 5 in the morning! You musta been pounded!!
You still think that excuse is gonna fly when Jorma hears about this?
Oh - and you might have to explain to Jack, too!
These guys are gonna take turns wacking you over the head with their guitars when you try that!
Ka-Bonnnnnnggggg!!
Ka-Bonnnnnnnngggggggg!!!
Wow - they even sound good doing that!!!!
