Only a 37% chance for an r&b legend with a distinctive voice and smooth, loping grooves behind the songs "Ain't No Sunshine", "Use Me", "Lean On Me", "Who Is He(And What Is He To You)?", "Grandma's Hands", "Kissing My Love", "Lovely Day" and "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh"?

Ok, I'm down with that. I love Bill Withers. He is all about soul.

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know.... that he'd be a better pick than Percy Sledge, for sure.

Not to mention Roberta Flack or Nina Simone who aren't even on this site's list (but "Sixx:AM" is?!... whatever)

An incredible travesty! Biggest omission at this point.

Absolutely insane and outrageous that Bill Withers wasn't voted in when he was first eligible. That he's still not in in 2011 is inconceivable. Hall of Shame!

The man is inspirational not only for his music and lyrics, which are hummed, whistled and sung world-wide, but for his humanity and decency. Do the right thing!

Not one of my favorites. I agree that he's deserving, but not before The Marvelettes or Spinners.
