If anyone looked at his body of work as well as the influence he had on Rock & Roll, he will get in easily. He should've been in. Grandmaster Flash befor Bobby Womack demonstrates how little the foundation reocognizes this man. Ask the Black population about Bobby Womack. He STILL performs today and his records are priceless. He and Gil SCott Herron were the first rappers.

Legendary Soul singer. Cleveland's finest. But I don't know if he will get in on the first ballot.

I've never heard any of Bobby Womack's work until last year, when someone lent me his album, The Poet. Great listen, especially his tune "If You Think You're Lonely Now..". I know he's had over 40 charted singles (according to Joel Whitburn's Top R&B Singles book), so who knows, maybe he's deserving.

Wow I'm glad he got in.

So am I. Kinda pissed the Stooges missed, but Womack deserves it, I think. If I'd voted, I'd have gone Womack, Little Anthony And The Imperials, Stooges, War, and Metallica.

"The Poet" Bobby Womack finally gets his just reward. Mr. Womack is truely deserving of this honor. Listen to his "Resurrection" cd to enjoy the full range and power in his voice. The track "Coming Home" is a hard pounding rock showcase. He has performed with all time legends - Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle, Ronald Isley, Wilton Felder, Rod Stewart and many others. Bobby, your time is again at hand, enjoy every minute of this well deserved honor. God Bless.

I saw Bobby Womack perform at Bonnaroo two weeks ago today, and he put on one of the most amazing, underrated performances there. I never thought it would be the last time as it was believed he was still going strong. Don't get me wrong, I knew he was having health problems (diabetes), but he was ready to tour Europe this summer.

Wow, Jason. I wish I'd seen him too. Glad you got to see him.
