Definitely put him in as a membe of Roxy Music. The solo career kind of follows the trend of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop etc., so 'no' for the solo stuff.

It is inexcusable that a legendary writer/singer/entertainer of Bryan Ferry's caliber has not been inducted into the Hall of Fame. If I were Bryan Ferry I would, at this point, refuse any belated 'honor' these nitwits would bestow upon me.

Ferry is a legend - one of the most influential artists via Roxy and solo. If his success in America was the same as his success for the rest of Planet Earth -- he would be a slam dunk to make the rockhall, given the Hall's anti-Brit bias.

He should be chosen without a doubt, he has been such a master at his craft, a front man any man would like to be...it would be such a big question forever being asked like Brian Clough not being chosen for the England job..it will be asked time and time again.

Put him in with Roxy Music.

Absolutely Paul,

I like Bryan Ferry's solo work also.

However, I think that his chances of induction are much better with his band, Roxy Music, than as a solo artist, at this time.

Roxy Music's final album, "Avalon" was an absolute masterpiece and arguably, their greatest recording.
