I think they may induct Al Stewart at some point (and it would be very well deserved). He has had a long, distinguished career as a British folk singer-songerwriter-guitar player and has worked with many greats in the industry. But what really makes him stand the test of time is his music.

For those interested, Modern Times (75) and Year of the Cat (76) are good starting points.

Everyone who makes a record that people stop their cars to listen more closely to, should be immediately inducted into the R and R Hall of F.

Writing,singing,recording and playing live from the 1960's to 2012 is ample testimony to that man's prowess and magic. I don't know what else the people from RARHOF want !!!Not to forget The Moody Blues and Jethro Tull!!!

Until this year, my answer would have been 'no', despite the fact that Al Stewart is, bar none, my favorite musical artist ever. But, now that Cat Stevens has been inducted, I have to wonder -- if he's HHROF worthy, then how can Al Stewart, who has had a brilliant 50-year career as a pioneer of folk-rock, not be? I'm quite a big fan of Stevens as well, but if you put their resumes side by side, I think AS easily has the edge.

Very interesting fellow. Sort of a history teacher who put his lessons to music. He was friends with many prominent people including Yoko Ono and Paul Simon and worked with Jimmy Page, Richard Thompson and Ian Anderson. Also a very important figure in the late 60s British folk movement. Played at the first Glastonbury Festival in 1970.
