Sister Rosetta Tharpe inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

It's always a good time to listen to some Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced yesterday that she had been inducted into the Hall's "Influences" category.

Of course, the Cotton Plant native was already a one-of-a-kind legend, induction or no. There wouldn't be rock & roll or a hall to celebrate it without prime movers like Tharpe.

Think I know I'll be playing this afternoon.

p.s. Stephanie Smittle offered some thoughts on Tharpe over at the Rock Candy blog last October when she was first nominated for the honor.
