No induction for The Comets? Looks like a case similar to The Miracles.

I did some research and it turns out The Comets actually were inducted with Bill Haley.

Wow I see glad to hear they all were in...

Any reason The Comets didn't get inducted with Haley? The commitee just doesn't want to look stupid and say, "Opps, we forgot somebody."

One of the most incredible things about Bill Baley and The Comets is how they achieved major international success and won thousands (maybe even millions) of new fans after their initial triumphs back in the U.S.A.

Good grief! I can't believe I called Bill Haley "Baley."

His album "Rock Around The Clock" might be one of the worst rock albums I ever heard.

I guess so. and at least it has the awesome title track, making it better than albums with NO good tracks.

I haven't heard the entire album yet, but I have listened to the following tracks:

Well, you've made it clear how much you love 50's music so you'll probably love this album.

Bill Haley was the unsung hero of rock and roll while people like Elvis Presley have been made comfortable in the rock and roll history books and has been transformed into a constellation, his music has been respected by the record-buying pubic.
