I wonder if the induction of Dr. John and/or our induction of Cosimo Matassa at the Revisited/Projected project had anything to do with the Hall finally recognizing him. Probably not (at least the latter), but who knows.

Afrika Bambaataa is African American.
Cosimo Matassa is White Italian.

I seem to recall the Rock Hall having an exhibit or feature or something about Matassa last year, and quite a few speculayted he would be in last year's class because of that.

Also for what it's worth Digital Dream Door rated him and Tom Dowd as 10s (meaning 'The Immortals" on their scale) for non-performers. The only one left on their snub list whom thy gave a 10 is Willie Mitchell.

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
