Answering questions post-induction, Miller criticized the lack of female inductees (none in 2016, only Joan Jett in 2015) and criticizing the award show for a lack of respect. Miller was given two tickets and would have had to pay $10,000 to get any more.

“The whole process needs to be changed from the top to the bottom. They need to get their legal work straight. They need to respect the artists they say they’re honouring, but they don’t.”

Alongside Miller, Cheap Trick, NWA and Deep Purple were also inducted into the Hall of Fame last night.
