For Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a last dance with Donna Summer

When I interviewed Donna Summer last year, she had just been passed over again for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I asked if it was, as is so often said, just an honor to be nominated.

“That’s a bunch of baloney,” said Summer with a laugh. “I don’t care about the honor of being nominated, honor me and let me win! After about the third time, stop nominating me, I’m starting to feel like a loser.” Summer, a Boston native, continued to laugh a robust laugh and added, “I’m just kidding. It is an honor to be nominated, seriously.”
