Fabian was a rock icon in the late 50's and 60's and should be included in the HF.

Fabian was nothing more than an Elvis impersonator with a body condom on.

Thanks to a series of performances on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, Fabian rocketed to stardom in the late '50s. With his stylish good looks and mild rock & roll, he became one of the top teen idols of the era; luckily, he had the support of the legendary songwriting team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, who provided him with "Turn Me Loose," "Hound Dog Man," and "I'm a Man," among other songs. Fabian's fame peaked in 1959 with the million-selling "Tiger" single; after that, he valiantly tried to become a movie star. When Congress fingered him as one of the performers who benefited from payola, his already-ailing career was given a nearly fatal blow; under questioning, Fabian explained that his records featured a substantial amount of electronic doctoring in order to improve his voice. After the hearings, he starred in some more movies in the '60s, without regaining the audience of his peak years.

It is a true crying shame that he is not in ! IT seems he was one of the early artist that used sound efects on his vocals ,, Now it is a very commin pratice... That in its self should put him in ....besides he was the rock and roll heart throb of many a young lady...!A true legend in the rock and roll world of fame

I don't know what you people have been smoking that would make you think Fabian would get into the Hall of Fame but I want some of it (and not because I want to see Fabian in the Hall of Fame)

I agree with you robert and yes I'd pass it to you if I had one. One can maybe make a bit of a case for Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka, but Fabian? No.

Fabian is nice to listen to on a sunny summer afternoon but he is way too feather-weight for an induction.
