Will 10cc be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?

How about Graham Gouldman as a Non-Performer. Before he cofounded 10cc he wrote hits for The Hollies ("Bus Stop" "Look Through Any Window"), The Yardbirds ("For Your Love" "Heart Full of Soul" "Evil Hearted You") Herman's Hermits ("Listen People" "No Milk Today") Jeff Beck ("Tallyman") and Many More

I do hope they induct 10cc too. But I think they have already waited too long to induct 10cc and at this point they merit a special, more prestigious honor. That is why I have proposed to Jan Werner that the Rock Hall starts a new special category where they induct 10cc as a Band and all of them as individual members. I am quite certain that my proposal is being taking seriously and will probably occur in 2010

Is this Lax26's brother or Lax himself with a differnet name?

Brian - This was a bit of a scary post. I hope to God it is actually Lax26. I would hate to think that there is someone else who thinks like him.

No, this is not LAX 26 (or his brother), just a satirist mocking the absurdity of his Genesis posts, I'm glad at least a few ppl noticed the connection...

There's a stain on their wall.

#360 on Notinhalloffame.com and #199 on rateitall.com I lean towards rateitall on this one. Loved the irony of this band, and though musically they were underrated. This was not just a standard soft rock band. Oh....and yes i know the origin of the name......:) http://notinhalloffame.com/news.php

10cc don't really deserve to be in, they were more of a pop rock band really.

Wasn't Abba a pop rock band?

How about The Beach Boys?

Posted by interviewer on Wednesday, 06.9.10 @ 15:51pm

Giid point.
But I just dont feel like they were ever really important enough to enter.

my third favourite band, Eric Stewart was a genius, and Graham gouldman, amazing songwriter but i dont see what they are recognized for (in rock)

Both Donovan and Graham Gouldman are being inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame next Thursday, (June 12). They are birthmates since they were both born on May 10, 1946. (Another artist born on May 10, 1946 is Dave Mason)
