He's right about Link Wray. The James Gang ought to be in there too.


They ought to slow down on inducting newer artists, because of the backlog of very worthy candidates from the 60's and 70's who are not getting any younger.

Bands in the last three decades have not had to compete on the charts with the real heavyweights. If they put them in now, who will they induct in the future?

Maybe they could change it to the Popular Music Hall of Fame. That way we won't expect nominees to be Rock and Roll.

Yep, rock as a musical genre is watered down by this nonsense.

LL Cool J? Kraftwerk?

Imagine this: While Kraftwerk is «playing» live in the Hall, Peter Wolf and the J. Geils Band will still be waiting for induction.

A disgrace.

Plus Wolf is the second best front man ever

DefLeppard is beyond atrocious. Nearly as bad as Styx and Bon Jokey etc.

Someone mentioned X, AGREED! What a band

If anyone wanted some more info about how people get nominated:

[www.vulture.com]

I spoke to hall founder Jann Wenner and current CEO Joel Peresman earlier this year. They both flatly denied any messing around with voting procedures. We have to take them at their word. But still: When I look over the current nominating-committee membership — the Rolling Stone critics; industry vets like Seymour Stein and Bill Flanagan; artists like Robbie Robertson, Questlove and Tom Morello; a few people I know slightly or have met over the years — I think, who among these people would advocate for an unheralded, critically ignored band like Def Leppard? There are about 30 members of the nominating committee right now, and, if as I’ve been told, each member gets to advocate for two acts, that’s 60 total in the mix for each year’s nominations. Are Little Steven, or Paul Shaffer, or the Patti Smith Group’s Lenny Kaye really making the case for these lunkheads, or even just nodding along in agreement as someone else makes the case? (“They need to be an advocate,” Peresman told me of the nominators. “They need to tell a story to sell to the others in the room.”) Could dark forces at the hall insert a fan-friendly but crappy band to sell tickets to the annual show and drive audience to the Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland? I spoke to one nominating committee member who said … “No. There’s a lot of support for Def Leppard in the group. No one went [gagging sound]. There are some nominations where I think, ‘You have got to be kidding me.’ I didn’t notice anybody cringing.” This seems to be in keeping with what Wenner told me earlier this year: “I think over the years now, the generations are changing, and commercial success seems to be a more relevant element to some people.”

At this point shouldn’t The Partridge Family be inducted? To me there doesn’t have to be automatic yearly inductions. Hall of fame is a joke now.

I agree. When going solo she started reverberating her voice to no return. It is really annoying.

I think Stevie Nicks was good for FM. But, as a solo artist, she did little to even be considered for the hall. I really never liked her in FM. So many other groups that are far more deserving than her.

To some of us Brits , The Zombies are well deserved for any accolade to them.

Great music and entertainment from a band who are still great when you see them play live.

Well done and congratulations to them. smileys with beer

I would like to say the Hall jumped the shark but in actuality, that is too kind.

I stopped paying attention after they inducted ABBA. That was my S.O.S. that those voting didn't know what Rock & Roll was.

If Stevie Nicks, or Janet Jackson, or The Cure, are considered rock and roll, then whoever does the choosing haven't a clue about what rock and roll is. IMHO, Nicks owes a sh*tload of gratitude and thanks to Lindsey Buckingham for her fame and status in the world of music. She is seriously over-rated as a solo act.

I can only now wonder when The Archies will get their nod to join the hall.
