I'm glad he got in as an EI. He had a very unique voice and "Spoonful", "Killing Floor", and "Evil(Is Going On)" have always been some of my personal favorite blues songs.

"Smokestack Lightning" is the coolest blues cut ever!!!

He was also nominated in the main performers category but inducted in the early influence category. This is where the mess started, not with Wanda Jackson and Freddie King.

All hail the golden voice of blues! Robert Johnson may have defined it, B.B. King may be the grand old man, Muddy Waters may have spearheaded the Chicago blues scene, Chuck Berry may have married it with rock, and Bo Diddley may have created one of the signature beats, but no one provided as poignant or as emotionally-charged a voice for the blues as Mr. Chester Arthur Burnett. Keep in mind that I absolutely love King, Waters, Johnson, Berry, Diddley, etc., but Wolf is on a completely different plane when it comes to the blues. Hearing him sing is like a religious experience. R.I.P., big guy!

Wow. I finally agree with everything Zach says in a post.
