Former AC/DC Bassist Speaks Out On HALL OF FAME Snub

Former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans recently gave an interview to Classicrockrevisited.com in which he discussed being snubbed by the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame after being included in the initial press release announcing AC/DC's induction. With regards to his reasons for going public about the whole affair, Evans said, "Induction into the Hall of Fame is based on historical contribution to the band and the music and I believe is judged by a panel of learned music industry people, which is why I was so pleased to be nominated. I have always had great respect for the Hall of Fame and I was proud that they had seen my contribution worthy of inclusion. So to answer your question, I'm not trying to 'get in,' I am trying to discover why I am now out! I guess it wouldn't hurt if people were to lobby the Hall of Fame office and web site seeking an answer to that." Evans appeared on several early AC/DC records, including "High Voltage", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" and "Let There Be Rock" and "TNT" (Australia). You can read the entire interview here.
