Excuse me - - I just came in here to poop on the floor and leave.

OH HELL NO!!! This band represented the last gasp of the wimpy ballad music by artist such as the Carpenters and Christopher Cross. Thank God that MTV came along when it did and ran these groups off.

Making Love Out Of Nothing At All

OH YEAAAAH! They need to, after all these years of spreading love and romance thru their music. Some people are just too shallow and they don't know that the band has became a total rock band at present. The guys deserve to be included in the R&R Hall of Fame!

Regardless of whether one appreciates the music of Air Supply or not (and most who would post negative comments here probably haven't heard the group in the past 25 years and know nothing of their music), the group's success warrants them induction. Billboard cited them as the most successful group of the '80's. They now hold the record of the longest sustained touring group. And while they get virtually no airplay in the US, they still have held #1 spots in album sales in many worldwide markets (and even performed to 175,000 people in Havana the day before a major hurricane.) Naysayers should check their recent releases out or see them live. Some of their songs these days ("Me Like You," "Dance With Me") are more reminiscent of KISS (another group that should be inducted)than the mellow stuff remembered from two decades ago.

They SO need to be in. They've been snubbed YEARS too long.

Air Supply deserves to be in the Rock N Roll hall of fame...They have been around almost 40 years..alot more then some of these so called no talent bands..(They know who they are)...They have been subbed for far too long...WISE UP!!! They need to be inducted ASAP!
Posted by t.general on Monday, 11.5.12 @ 19:49pm
These guys have been recording and touring for 37 years. Sellout stadium shows, and a really loyal fan following. They perform LIVE, they are expert showmen. They write and record their own unique style of music. If you don't like it...why vote??? Is that not like phoning someone to tell them you don't want to talk to them???!!! The "80's ballad image" they had is long gone, it served them well, and was right for the time. Try actually LISTENING to their newer stuff before judging.

Also, if people, don't have RESPECTFUL, TASTEFUL things to say, they should have the decency to not say ANYTHING. The guys are really amazing and loving, caring people, and they don't deserve to have garbage said about them. They've done what they need to do to be in and should be, whether somep people are fans or not, and I think it's time they GOT in.
Posted by Jenny on Wednesday, 11.7.12 @ 16:12pm
YES they should get in! They have had a level of worldwide success that rivals most any other band out there. They continue to write, record, tour, and chart new songs across the world after 37 years. They deserve it! On another note, if you are against them getting inducted, that's fine, but back it up with some sort of factual evidence rather than thoughtless opinionated posts.

These fantastic, artistic and powerhouse singers have been around since the mid-70's wowing audiences of fans (and soon-to-be fans) of all ages since then, and - they're still touring world-wide without so much as more than a two-day break. They've sold studio or live albums almost every year and draw amazingly huge SRO crowds. My grand kids love Air Supply songs as well as my mom did at age 80! If there ever was a group for "All Seasons", this is it! Air Supply accompaniment plays with that cool, spine tingling rock edge and sings with those perfect pitch, mellow vocals that thrill the soul. They compose most of their own music (all of which deserves awards in itself) and are truly the backdrop to the lives of so many people in so many countries. Probably over half of people you ask would say they fell in love, got engaged or got married to an Air Supply song! No group is more deserving of this, and other, accolades and awards. They are deeply loved and appreciated literally millions world-wide.

Air Supply should be in. They were voted by Billboard as the third most successful band of the 80's. For all of you haters, find their latest music and give it a listen. They have never nor do they need to follow any trends. They have what too many artists nowadays do NOT have: REAL TALENT. Graham can write a song like no one else. Russell has the purest voice of anyone in music today. They should've in years ago. They deserve it.
Posted by Michelle Rhodes on Monday, 11.12.12 @ 23:10pm
One of those acts that excelled at what it did- catchy and cheesy love songs. But, no real shot at consideration for the HOF.
Posted by JR on Friday, 04.26.13 @ 16:06pm
They deserve to and should be.
Posted by Jenny on Sunday, 04.5.15 @ 17:02pm
May 12,2015 Air Supply will celebrate 40 years of making music. They deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They still tour and sell out venues through out the world. Their music has grown up a bit, still love songs but rock and roll too, songs have modernized. They put on a great show.

After 40 years of touring and releasing albums, after tying the Beatles for successive top 5 singles, after selling millions and millions of albums, after continuing to perform for 5 decades, these guys are not in? Give your head a shake RRHOF!
Posted by Lorraine on Monday, 11.16.15 @ 02:08am
I think this is the only artist page where I've seen the most women comment. Maybe its just me (?). Anyway, as much as I'd love to see their legacy get plenty of respect and some sort of, well, induction, I'd say their best chances of getting them in is if the hall had a soft-rock division. They may be touring and all, but none of that matters to the RRHOF nominating committee. One of my guilty pleasure songs is 'Lost in Love'.
Posted by Jason Voigt on Monday, 11.16.15 @ 02:27am
My first cassette tape purchases over 35 years ago were "Lost In Love" by Air Supply and "The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack To Xanadu" by E.L.O. and various artists.

Zuzu, that's a pretty good write-up. As far as younger generations redefining genres and such, I think part of it has to with the nature of history-chronicling and historians in general. In the 1996 edition of Top Pop Singles, Joel Whitburn referred to the Backstreet Boys as a vocal group, but by the mid-2000's, even he was using the term '"boy band"' to describe them. Reading the liner notes of one of the doo-wop box sets, one learns that "doo-wop" wasn't even coined until the '70s; before then, it was known as "vocal R&B." I suspect the term was coined not just for marketing and "Oldies" and "Dusties" programming, but also to differentiate it between the '50s and '70s vocal R&B that was becoming big from acts like the Spinners, Stylistics, Delfonics, and strangely enough, the Dells who were also a "doo-wop" group back then.

On Air Supply: They have a case for the RRHOF. AS was one of the first and best Prog Adjacent Australian Soft Rock Bands. They continue to tour 40 years later and Russell is hands down one of the greatest singers. Graham the left handed guitarist crafts some beautiful guitar work. Lost In Love is a Classic where Graham initiates singing and Russell continues later and ends in soaring tenor. Even The Nights Are Better is a solid song as well. Very upbeat. Air Supply has been commercially successful and have many of their songs covered by important artists. When many of rock group have been placed on the scrap heap of history, Air Supply is still around. RRHOF has inducted a wide swath of music groups from James Taylor to The Clash to Darlene Love to NWA. There should be room for Air Supply, America, David Gates & Bread, Pablo Cruise, and groups of this genre. KING
