In my honest opinion, Carly Simon is unquestionably one of the greatest singer/ songwriters of all time. She has been inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame.

Enig,

That was an amazing post you had there. I left Carly Simon off my list because I'm not sure how Singer/Songwriters fare following the Committee change. I wanted to see what happens. I was thinking at least for 2016 the Hall would give the Mellower thing a rest a bit. I do agree totally with Sade.

Doobie Brothers and Foreigner are good picks but due to so many other artists I think they will wait on those. I am focusing on Nominees. Chicago have a great chance as a Nominee.

Duran Duran also have a great chance. They had tremendous popularity in the 80s and there is an artsiness to their sound. You are a bigger fan but I will say they had their place. I think the leaner and meaner committee will bring on an Influx of Prog and Art Rock. The door will be open for Procul Harum and Jethro Tull as you said. I love Jethro Tull. They are one of my fav bands of all time. Strangely I am not predicting them this year. When it comes to predictions you go with what the Hall might think. Moody Blues came first so I go with them always. I noted that you feel the only major Progressive rock artist that may not be inducted until later could be Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I do agree. I love them but the Hall won't. The way I remember it long ago ELP did poorly with the critics. So I do think Supertramp, Procul Harum and Jethro Tull will go in first. Ahh but I think all those above will be nominated soon to focus on that. There too though Emerson, Lake & Palmer I figure won't get a nomination for at least 4 or 5 years.

About Sade, Enigmaticus wrote:
With very few exceptions, most of the people whom I have polled over the past several months like Sade much more than another often touted artist, on this website.

In my honest opinion, Quincy Jones was right about preserving this country's music traditions. Jazz has been an important genre of music for more than a century. Smooth jazz is the daughter of "Jazz fusion."

Sade exemplifies the best of this genre. Her band and she have remained popular throughout the world for more than 30 years. Their most recent live recording attests to the fact that her band can still put on a great show. Helen Folasade Adu appears to be ageless and her soaring vocals are both strong and passionate.

Sade has been recognized by VH-1 as being the 50th greatest artist of all time. Sade has been an influence on many major popular artists. Sade has been recognized with numerous awards. They have been nominated for induction into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame.

It is now the time for Sade, to be inducted next year, along with several other iconic artists into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Ben,

Thank you for your response. I am still thinking that four prog acts may be inducted next year: "Yes," "The Moody Blues," "Duran Duran" and "Electric Light Orchestra."

The Rock Hall does need to induct female artists and who would fit in more than both Carly Simon and Sade? Of course, it does not hurt their chances when both are "prog" adjacent.

I am slightly less certain about The Doobie Brothers and Foreigner, however.

I think that Deep Purple will be inducted in 2017 at the New York ceremony, along with Twisted Sister and Bad Company. Chicago is definitely a wild card, they could be inducted in 2016, but I think that they will most likely be inducted in 2018 in Cleveland, or in 2019 back in Los Angeles.

After Duran Duran is inducted next year, quite possibly by the members of Rush, I expect their members and the members of Rush to support Roxy Music's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction in New York in 2017. Once that happens, that will open the door for the rest of the remaining prog acts leading up to the inductions of King Crimson, Kansas, Supertramp, Procol Harum and Jethro Tull. By 2020, almost all of the big prog acts and "prog adjacent" artists would have been inducted, including possibly Styx, Boston and Asia. The only major "progressive rock" artist that may not be inducted until later could be Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

Then in 2020, I think that the Hall will probably start to focus more on "heavy metal" and "progressive metal."
