Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Finally Recognizes Woman Who Practically Invented Rock and Roll

Shared from the Good Show page. They always comes up with good stuff (and great tunes on Saturday morning). A long time comin'....

This year’s inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced, and they have finally gotten around to adding Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who’s got a pretty good claim to having invented that sh*t. She got her credit the same year as Dire Straits and Bon Jovi.
