SEND YOUR LETTERS TO THE FOLLOWING:

No, no, and no. The Rock Hall museum has nothing to do with the induction process (as odd as that sounds). Anyone who writes to the museum itself will get a form letter from Terry's office that pretty much says "[ARTIST YOU NAMED] is great but the induction process is big and complicated. Thank you for writing."
Folks, you only need to write to the Rock Hall Foundation at the address posted above and on the campaign web site (no e-mails; no calling...we're not looking to harass them). Writing separately to Jann Wenner (especially at the exact same address) or to each individual member of the nominating committee is just redundant. Everyone's energy needs to be focused soley on writing to Joel Peresman at the Rock Hall Foundation address; he'll forward induction-related mail to the nominating committee.
I hate to sound like a hard-case about this, but I don't want people going on wild goose chases with their letters. We need people to sit down and write thoughtful, sincere letters. Sending them to the Rock Hall Foundation is the only guaranteed way that they will be read and forwarded; there is no guarantee with writing to people individually, as a lot of these folks have people who open their mail and will gladly throw away things without a second thought; I do not want people to waste their time or work.
Speaking of getting the word out about the letters, though, in addition to the video volunteers on this tour, we will also need people before concerts passing out fliers with the Rock Hall address on it. So if you want to help out in a very low-tech way, let me know.
