Not so sure that Mr. Sahm deserves the Hall by himself. His first solo album was a classic, but did little afer that to merit induction. His work with the Sir Douglas Quintet, though, is surely worthy of entry into the Hall. He was a pioneer, innovator and one HELL of a musician. R.I.P. Doug.

Either Sahm or the Quintet, not both. Preferably the quintet, though his solo stuff is slammin' too.

Sir Douglas Quintet were nominated once in 2005.

Doug Sahm and the Sir Douglas Quintet deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.....no questions asked. If they can induct ABBA....then inducting Doug and Augie is a no brainer.

Saw the Doug Sahm link. Had no idea this person even existed. If people I have no idea even existed make the RnRHOF, it should be shut down. Oh wait, Laura Nyro is already in isn't she...go ahead and shut it down now.
