      Arrow Miles Davis’ Family Cheers Rock Hall Induction:

      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!

      Today’s ceremony first in a year full of historic
      occasions for late jazz legend.

      (March 13, 2006)

      *The immediate family of jazz icon Miles Davis is “extremely honored” that he is being recognized by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the organization's 21st annual induction ceremony, taking place tonight (March 13) at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

      The late trumpeter’s nephew, Vince Wilburn, Jr., along with immediate Davis offspring Cheryl and Erin Davis, said in a statement: "We acknowledge the uniqueness of a jazz musician being admitted into rock & roll's elite club. It is especially noteworthy and meaningful to the family that this honor is being bestowed on Miles as we celebrate his 80th birthday this year."

      Davis, who is widely acclaimed to be one of the 20th Century's most creative artists, is credited with changing the sound of popular music several times during his six-decade career. His musical experimentation, which began in the late '60s, created a highly innovative fusion of jazz with rock & roll, soul, funk and hip hop.

      His 80th birthday will be celebrated this year on May 26, while the 15th Anniversary of his passing will be recognized on September 21.

      As the sole jazz inductee of the 2006 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he will be honored alongside Black Sabbath, Blondie, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Sex Pistols.

      Davis fans may view several of his personal items now on loan with the Cleveland Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. For more information, please visit

      As part of Miles Davis' artifacts that will be on display at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, will be a pair of the legendary trumpeter's black and silver wingtip high-top shoes.

      I haven't listened to a single Miles Davis song since I read his biography and learned that he beat black women. I guess he is a musical icon, but that doesnt seem to keep me from thinking how I would feel if he had been beating on my mother.

      Hotep family!,
      My sentiments exactly!!!! actually i did not read the book....i "heard" the story thru the usual grapevine! and it did not help either when i came 2 the realization that he used to seriously beat on Cecily Tyson, who i deeply respect! i don't know if i'm right but....shouldn't we hold our community responsible for their irresponsibilty of sustaining a healthy and productive Afreekan family life? and if not who will hold them responsible? i feel we should not be outrightly celebrating the works of Afreekans who destroy the lives of other Afreekans, YES! HE WAS A BLACKMAZING PERFORMER!! but according 2 his actions he is not worthy of my or OUR honour...hey! Ike was a bad-ass performer 2 wasn't he??
