If the question were "Do you think he belongs in the Hall of Fame?" the answer is a resounding "Hell, yeah!" His work with King Crimson, Zappa and Talking Heads -- not to mention his own recordings -- was wild, fresh and unmistakably radical, and it really does speak for itself. But Belew never became the mainstream name he deserved to be, and since the voting body consists of too many mainstreamers who don't know a damn thing beneath the surface, Belew's honors will be relegated to the mental halls of fame of guitar geeks everywhere -- but not the big monstrosity in Cleveland ...

Adrian Belew has done more for the extension of the genre, in any 2-year period, than most artists contribute in their entire career.

Adrian Belew remains one of the most underrated and woefully overlooked musicians of recent times. Like all great artists/guitarists, Adrian has his own recognizable style and sound, but unlike many others, he has achieved an incredible versatility, and an ability to make his signature style fit into a wide variety of musical genres: hard rock, funk, new wave, experimental, Beatlesque pop, avant-garde and prog-rock, just to name a few.

He is a good musician...probably will get in when King Crimson does, which is long overdue!

Of coarse!!!! The RR Hall of Fame is a joke for him not being there already.

Influence: He's probably influenced lots of guitarists and "out there" bands. YES
