Anthony Kiedis

In Rock Hall of Fame!!!

EXCLUSIVE

102213_anthony_kiedis_launchScrew Nirvana and Kiss ... Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis says it's finally time to induct Cat Stevens into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after years of being snubbed.

Kiedis was dipping out of BOA in Hollywood Monday night when we asked him about the 2013 HOF nominees -- which includes Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Deep Purple, Cat Stevens ... and a slew of other big names.

Induct Cat?

  • No
  • Yes
The RHCP didn't say much, but he made it clear he's throwing his support behind the "Wild World" singer ... who now goes by the name Yusuf Islam.
                                                                                                              
The competition is stiff, so we gotta ask ...

Why in the world would we put in the Hall of Fame someone who sides with Al Qaida against America? Yusuf Islam has been quite vocal about his hatred for this country.

Induct Yusuf Islam? Hell no. He believes and has stated that people who do not adhere to muslem law
should be put to death.

And I'm sorry, the *music* of RHCP is good, but Kiedis sings sooo off-key and with a lisp, I can't listen to it.

It's obvious that may who voted yes have no idea about "Cat Stevens" background. Perhaps they should read up and then make their decision. From me it is a definite NO!

Link Wray should be in there above anybody on that list...including Nirvana. He wipes the floor with your jock-funk, holmes. Know your rock history Kiedis.

Nothing against cat stevens, he has some cool songs, but I would not really call his folk music rock. He does folk music people. That means he goes in the folk music hall of fame. For example, please list famous songs done by cat stevens that involve power chords... answer: none.

Guy supports a death sentence, a fatwa, against Salman Rushdie, he's anti-free speech, and has voiced support for Al-Qaeda against the West. So no, I don't support him getting any honor in this country.
