WHY HAS GRACE JONES NOT BEEN INDUCTED IS A MYSTERY TO ME! SHE WAS SO AHEAD OF HER TIME ,SHE MUSIC,LOOKS AND PERFORMANCE STLYE IS TRULY INSIRING I THINK THE PROBLEM IS THAT HER IMAGE HAS PRECEEDED HER MUSIC AND THATS NOT FAIR ONCE SHE GOT PEOPLE TO LOOK THEY DEFINATELY LISTENED! WHY IS THAT ALL THE GREATS ARE LOOKED OVER YEAR AFTER YEAR!

She certainly deserves to be inducted. The music she created back in 1980-1982 was so groundbreaking, so for that alone, she at least deserves another thought. She is also a visionary genius, who knows how to associate herself with the best people in the business. She is already a fashion icon and legend, and it is only a matter of time before people catches on on the musical side of Grace. In fifty years, people will listen to those three albums, and realise just how great the music was. It will stand the test of time.

There is no doubt that Grace Jones is one of the more astounding visual acts in pop music. Her voice has only improved with age and her efforts range over a remarkable variety of musical styles, some more successfully than others. But inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame? I don't think so. First of all, she is so unique that no one has had the guts to follow in her footsteps, either visually or musically. So it cannot be said that she has influenced music in the last twenty years whatsoever. What they should do is acknowledge her for being unequivocally a one and only. A true original. Not lump her in with everybody else. Go Grace!

Getting a little paranoid, akeem? Of the 8 comments on this board, only one mentions Lady Gaga. And that was yours...
