Hell yes he belongs in! In you listened to the radio from 1960 through 1962 and such classics as "New Orleans", Quarter To Three" "School Is Out" and all the rest, you know he had his own sound which was instantly identifiable and definitely was pure rock 'n roll.

I have known gary for over 25 years
he has always been a hard worker
who has his ups and downs
but he is like a rock n roll steam train
that never stops and keeps on going
and for years other artist have been walking in his foot steps and walking the same path
and stile that is rock n roll that is gary bonds

How can the inventor of party rock and roll not be included? He can still bring it at every show! AND is still making great music today!
Check out!

Given that Springsteen helped revive his career in the early 80's, maybe he can impress upon Landau to try and get Gary U.S. Bonds into the Hall. It'd be cool to see.

Well, now that Wanda's in, who will the Boss use his influence to pull for? I'd say this may be one of the stronger possibilities. We'll see.

Gary U. S. Bonds should be considered, for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Not only for his music talents, but to be considered for his showmanship as well the respect of his millions of fans the world over which he truly has earned during his many long years of a career that has surpassed many of his fellow peers in this industry.
