Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh Says He Voted for Dolly Parton
As far as Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh is concerned, Dolly Parton belongs in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Despite Parton declining her nomination last month, Mothersbaugh says he voted for her anyway: “I think she has as much right as a rapper would – she has every right to be there.”
He added, “Her music, whether she knows it or not, has a lot of rock elements in it.”
The Hall of Fame decided to keep Dolly on the ballot, despite her decision to withdraw.
We’ll find out if she makes the cut when the 2022 inductees are announced next month.
