“Nothing stays the same in music. Therefore, really, the institution that honors it has to evolve with all the music.

Just like hip-hop is very much a part of the Hall of Fame now, everything we do — the board members we have, the events we build on — has to reflect a changing culture without ever disregarding or turning our backs on the ideals and fundamentals of the Rock Hall.”
