Flopcast 625: Cher and the Gang

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2024 inductees have been announced, but instead of discussing them like normal humans, we're throwing them into a FlopFight tournament. Our competitors include Mary J. Blige, Foreigner, Frampton, and Ozzy. Our competitions involve cappuccino, penguins, and Smurfs. Anything can happen, and it will probably be ridiculous. Also: Happy Birthday to a Jersey boy who was inducted into the Rock Hall decades ago. Plus: Kevin (and Kevin!) are talking Watchmen on the Best Stuff in the World podcast. Hurm.

Show Notes

Two long-overdue Rock Hall nominees will be inducted on their first try: Kool & the Gang and Foreigner! Robert "Kool" Bell is the only surviving member of the former.

Meanwhile, the current incarnation of Foreigner is all new; co-founder Mick Jones (below) has been battling Parkinson's disease, and original singer Lou Gramm hasn't performed with the band since 2003. It's all very complicated.

Friend of the Flopcast Kevin Cafferty has a new podcast devoted to the Best Stuff in the World! Kevin was invited on the show to talk about Watchmen.
