Now that we're a few decades removed from the 80s, it has become clearer and clearer that Adam Ant definitely had a huge influence on rock music both in the US and around the world.

Does Adam Ant have anything to do with Adam and the Ants?

His solo career was nowhere near as significant as his stuff with the ants. No.

It's past time Adam Ant/Adam and the Ants were inducted. Marco Pirroni is one of the best guitarists of his generation. They deserve the recognition. Their sound was unique, forceful and empowering. Adam Ant has one of the most stellar comeback tours seen this year. Add them to the 2013 Inductees.

Adam Ant & the Ants will be inducted into the RRHOF one day because they(e y)created an incredibly unique sound like the RRHOF The Doors which has never been duplicated.

KING, you are smoking the CHRONIC if you think Adam Ant & the Ants (or without the Ants) will ever be inducted into the Hall.

Very overdue that Adam Ant be inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame. Pioneer in music video phenomenon, and had unique stage and costume style later ripped off by Michael Jackson. Marc Pirone should stand with Adam. "Strip" and other songs - very clever with "round" singing and choruses. Who else was doing that in the 80'?

KING. Read carefully. Not. Going. To. Happen.

More influential would be music that anyone gives a crap about.

Influencing "clothing style" means absolutely nothing towards Rock Hall worthiness. Adam Ant has pretty much no name recognition in the U.S. He may have been bigger in the UK, but ask Cliff Richard and Status Quo how well being huge in the UK but not the US has gone for them in terms of getting in the Hall.

Adam Ant is a unique artist. I watched some of his songs on You Tube. They were very good but not as great as I remembered. Only 7 then in his heyday.

I dont feel rock musicians who personally detest the u.s.a. and spits on american citizens just because they are americans should be put in any hall of fame. The mans whole personal hatred towards the u.s. is completely unfounded. We have not done any hating in return of our own towards great britain but it is high time that we have.
