I'm more excited about this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony than ever before, despite the douchetarded controversy surrounding the choice of inductees
. It's not just because two of my favorite
made it in, either (get well soon, Eddie!) No, I'm beside myself because I'm a total starfucker, and this year, one of my friends is being inducted.
Kevin "LaVon" (his middle name) Dukes is, in addition to being a sweet, smart guy and an adorably great dad, a former member of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
. (I probably shouldn't say that he's sweet...the dude's one of the founding fathers of hip hop. He's got an image to protect. But I can't help it. He really is just...well, sweet. Sorry Kev.)
When I asked him what he was going to wear tonight (because above all other things, that is what's important), he said, "I was thinking some silver suspenders and a tutu. Maybe rollerskates."
"In that case, you'll need silver hotpants, to match the suspenders," I replied. He agreed.
So when you're watching the ceremony on TV, now you know who to look for.
(Actually, he's the guy on the right in the photo. And no, he doesn't wear those pants anymore. Believe me, I asked.)
All told, though...how awesome is all of that, exactly?
I'm thinking pretty damned.
