I inquired about it and even got sent some materials, but in order to vote 
one must be a dues-paying member of the Hall, and as much as I love Pete, I'm 
not ready to fork out $50 just to be able to cast a vote for him.  I'm already 
spending over $600 on seats for Who concerts and that's where I'd rather spend 
my Who money.  You're right, though.  It was insipid.  Quite a bore.  Couldn't 
continue watching for more than 5 minutes.
