黑色安息日乐队将入主摇滚名人堂!

2005-12-01 00:00MTV,连庆翻译

  Our long national nightmare is over. After eight tries, legendary heavy metal act Black Sabbath will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, whether Ozzy Osbourne likes it or not.

  我们国家(英国)漫长的噩梦结束了。结过8次不泄的努力,重金属的传奇组合黑色安息日将于明年最终入主摇滚名人堂,不论奥兹·奥斯本会不会高兴。

  They will be joined by punk pioneers the Sex Pistols, new wave icons Blondie, jazz godhead Miles Davis and southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd. The 21st annual ceremony will take place on March 13 in New York at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

  他们将加入朋克先锋性手枪、新浪潮代表金发妞儿乐队、爵士教父麦尔斯·戴维斯和南方的摇滚人Lynyrd Skynyrd的队伍。第21届典礼将在于明年的3月13号在纽约的沃尔多夫-艾斯托娅饭店举行。

  In a 1999 letter to the Hall of Fame, Ozzy famously told the institution to Just take our name off the list. Save the ink. Forget about us. The nomination is meaningless, because it's not voted on by the fans. It's voted on by the supposed elite for the industry and the media, who've never bought an album or concert ticket in their lives, so their vote is irrelevant to me. He added, Let's face it, Black Sabbath has never been media darlings. We're a people's band and that suits us just fine.

  在一封1999年时写给名人堂的信中,奥兹告诉评委会如下著名的内容“干脆地把我们名字从名单上撤下来。省点儿墨水儿吧。忘记我们吧。提名是毫无意义的,因为这不是歌迷投票的结果。这是那些被认为是行业和媒体的精英们投的票,而那些人一生都没买过一张专辑或是一张演唱会的票,所以他们的投票跟我毫无关系。”他补充道,“让我们面对这个问题:黑色安息日从来不是媒体的宠儿。我们是一支当之无愧的人民的乐队。”

  The group — bassist Geezer Butler, guitarist Tony Iommi, Osbourne and drummer Bill Ward — recently inducted into the U.K. Music Hall of Fame, has long been considered one of the cornerstones of heavy metal. Black Sabbath's absence from the Hall of Fame has been the source of much of the criticism surrounding the way the Hall selects its honorees.

  这支乐队——贝斯手齐泽·巴特勒,吉他手托尼·伊欧米,奥斯本和鼓手比尔·华德——最近被收入英国音乐名人堂,长久以来被看作是重金属音乐的基石。黑色安息日缺席名人堂,一直引起大量维绕名人堂入围者选择的批评。

  Though they only managed to release one album, England's Sex Pistols helped set the standard for punk through a series of outrageous stunts, chaotic live shows and the blistering nihilism of their single studio LP, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. New York's Blondie put a pop face on the late 1970s downtown punk scene via a mix of new wave quirkiness and irresistible hooks, spinning off such classic hits as Heart of Glass and Rapture, with the latter helping to bridge the gap between punk and the emerging hip-hop scene.

  虽然仅出版过一张专辑,英格兰的性手枪们却通过一系列暴躁的惊人表演、混乱的现场演出和一张狂热的虚无主义唱片“别理睬那些胡言乱语,性手枪来喽”帮着朋克们确立了标准。纽约的金发小妞乐队则通过混合新浪潮的诡异却不可抗拒的上口旋律,给1970年代的市区朋克潮流加入了一些流行的外表,伴着如“玻璃心”和“兴高采烈”这样的经典作品,还帮助弥补了后来朋克和黑炮潮流间的代沟。

  Late trumpeter Davis was one of the most celebrated, enigmatic and experimental musicians of the modern jazz era, flirting with everything from standards to fusion and rock (1970's Bitches Brew) during his 50-year career.

  在50年的职业生涯中,大器晚成的小号家戴维斯是摩登爵士时代中最有名的、最高深的和最具实验精神的音乐家之一,从传统爵士到融合再到摇滚(1970年的“泼妇酿造”专辑)的每种音乐间尽情玩乐。

  A&M Records founders Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss will be inducted in the Lifetime Achievement in the Non-Performer category for their work building the label they co-founded in 1962 into one of the most successful independent labels in the world.

  A&M唱片公司创始人赫伯·阿尔伯特和杰瑞·摩斯将被授予非表演类的终身成就奖,用于奖励他们在1962年共同创立的这个世界上最成功的独立唱片厂牌。

  Artists become eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after the release of their first record.

  艺术家们只有在他们的首张唱片发行25周年后才有资格申请摇滚名人堂。


  常识性说明  
  Black Sabbath:英国最著名的重金属乐队之一,也是世界上公认的大名鼎鼎的重金属乐鼻祖。乐队中少了一根手指的吉他手Iommi也是世界上顶级的吉他手之一;而其主唱Ozzy Osbourne曾毒瘾缠身,事业一度中断,后在妻子的帮助下戒毒复出。两年前在一部欧美和世界范围内热播的真人秀“The Osbournes”(奥斯本一家)中他靠着连篇的脏话再次大红大紫一番。
