Ulrich Stunned The Stooges Overlooked For Hall Of Fame

METALLICA drummer LARS ULRICH is thrilled with the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but shocked fellow nominees, punk icons THE STOOGES were overlooked.
The Enter Sandman hitmakers will be honoured with the prestigious musical tribute at the 2009 induction ceremony in April (09).
They will be inducted alongside by English rocker Jeff Beck, hip-hop veterans Run-D.M.C., American singer/song-writer Bobby Womack and R+B group Little Anthony + the Imperials - but Ulrich insists he's holding out for Iggy Pop and his bandmates to get the honour.
He says, "It surprised me. I thought The Stooges would be a shoe in. Hopefully another year."
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President + CEO Joel Peresman adds, "There's never a closed door."
