Cactus = a hard rock supergroup. The initial lineup was Tim Bogert, Carmine Appice, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart. Later on, Jim McCarty (From Mitch Ryder's Detroit Wheels) and Rusty Day (from The Amboy Dukes) joined.

Cactus were a good supergroup. I don't think they are worthy of induction though because the only major group I know of who sites them as an influence is Anvil.

And his name is Tim Bogert. Notice the E. And don't forget about how great Appice is.

It's sad that I don't see any of the bands Appice or Bogert were in having much of a chance of induction. They have both done a lot in thier careers. Maybe in the Sidemen category I can see a chance for Appice, Bogert I'm not sure.

Jeff Beck was initially going to play with Cactus, but got into a car wreck and had to sit out of the music scene for a while. If I'm not mistaken, so was Rod Stewart...

Beck later made a band called Beck, Bogert, & Appice.

In conversations with other guitarists, Beck is one of the few who you can spend hours on...it's amazing how many roads his career has taken, not to mention the bands he was on the verge of playing with (most notably the Rolling Stones an d Pink Floyd).

Here's an interesting read about Cactus. Van Halen were also influenced by this supergroup. "Eruption"'s intro is based on Cactus's "Let me Swim" and "Hot for Teacher" bears some similarites to thier cover of "Parchman Farm".

I'm just tried about talking about "the one-hit wonder from the Native American, ninja movie".

I've really underestimated the amount of influence these guys have had. After a little trip to Rolling Stone's site and that link above here's some acts that list Cactus as an influence: Van Halen, The Black Crowes, Black Keys, Kid Rock, King's X, Ted Nugent, David Coverdale, Steve Morse, Anvil, Montrose, and Billy Sheehan. That's quite a lot of influence for such a little known, short lived supergroup.
