I know that Gail & family went along with FZ being inducted into the "Rock and Roll" Hall of Fame posthumously (notwithstanding the fact that the presentation was made by Lou Reed). But aside from the fact that Frank would've shunned the meaningless status of membership in this institution, I think he definitely wouldn't want to be in a club that includes ABBA and now Donna Summer...while excluding peers like King Crimson, The Stranglers, Roxy Music, etc.

He'd probably wonder what disco/pop have to do with actual Rock and Roll? But on the other hand, he was also bemoaning the state of the "rock" industry 30/40 years ago too.
