Hall of Flames

In response to the following: "Grammy Forecast: U2 Faces Stiff Competition," by Paul Grein, Jan. 10); "Who'll Rock Into 21st-Century Hall of Fame?" by Robert Hilburn, Jan. 17; Pop Eye: "Picking the Best of the Worst," by Patrick Goldstein, Jan. 10.

The Grammy nominations are out and Grein's predictions were right. As a longstanding, U-2 fan, I wish them success.

Mr. Hilburn, after four years of criticism, couldn't you give Duran Duran a few more percent than a 5% chance of making the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? The band, J.C. and me would appreciate the contribution.

Mr. Goldstein, was Bowie's album really that bad? No.
