This is one of the greatest oversight the Nominating committee has done since it's creation back in 1986.

It's a crying shame that Billy Ward and The Dominoes have yet to grace the RRHOF. Come on now, this is the group that gave Jackie Wilson and Clyde McPhatter their starts. That's reason enough to induct Billy Ward and The Dominoes, but there's plenty of other reasons, too.

Unless there's a separate Dominoes group that was nominated for the Class of 1997, then this group was indeed nominated once before. I don't think it was Derek And The Dominoes that was nominated, though it wouldn't surprise me.

Was Billy Ward ever a member of the Dominoes, or just Billy Ward and the Dominoes? Why were they only nominated as the Dominoes to begin with?

Wait a minute, why is the eligibility year for Billy Ward & The Dominoes earlier than the Dominoes? This is wrong!

That's weird. They are one and the same group. That would be like listing THE MIRACLES and SMOKEY ROBINSON & THE MIRACLES. or THE FOUR SEASONS and FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS.
