I use music to help me deal with Depression, Anxiety, Alcoholism, and everyday life. It has been a huge part of my life since I was born. These Ceremonies don’t mean much to some people and that’s fine. I find it disrespectful to the people already inducted. It’s like saying “it doesn’t matter you got inducted because it’s all a joke”. THAT is what I find disrespectful. Should they change the way people are picked to be inducted? Absolutely.
Without Joan Jett we wouldn’t have the female rockers that we’ve had through the years. And even that hasn’t been many. I don’t know that many women that can pull off rock like she can. She can do it all without giving up her sexuality or selling it. Her voice is still incredible.
The problem was having Miley Cyrus on stage with her trying to outsing everyone on the stage. Sticking her tongue out and at one point having a breast fall out with a pastie on it. Miley then proceeds to tell a story about Joan Jett and it is at this point I change the channel. She’s lucky I was no where near the venue or her vicinity it was that bad.
Step 1- Take the gum out of your mouth when publicly speaking.
Step 2- When honoring someone at an event speak about their accomplishments.
Step 3- Keep your tongue in your mouth it’s in there for a reason and none of us want to see it.
Step 4- You can tell a joke or two but unless you’re Lemmy from Motorhead keep it normal and clean.
Step 5- Keep Dave Grohl with you at all times.
These are my suggestions for a successful speech! Good luck next time.
