                                                Metallica, along with Run-D.M.C., Jeff Beck, Little Anthony and the Imperials and Bobby Womack, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during an April 4 ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall.

                                                • Of course they deserve it. So many non-rock artist are let in , glad to see one of the biggest Hard Rock acts ever is inducted.

                                                  Question is which members of the band, past and present? Lars, James and Kirk of course. Rob? Jason? Cliff (R.I.P.)? How about Mustaine

                                                  I remember the late great Bon Scott was inducted along with AC/DC in 2003. So I suppose Cliff Burton will be inducted too. He was an integral part of the first 3 albums for sure. But Jason was their Bass player for longer time and on their biggest selling albums too (Justice & Black Album)!

                                                  And of course Rob is a current member.

                                                              Presumably 'Hysteria' by Def Leppard is just outside of this list?
