The more I listen to "Don't You Just Know It," the more I realize what an important song this is for helping to shape rock'n'roll music that followed. That and "Rockin' Pneumonia"... I really hope he gets in.

My comment should be noted, yes they should have been inducted long ago. Huey is now in his late 70's. As well as his only female singer,my aunt Gerri Hall. Most of the other members of the Clowns have passed. It would be a great honor for him and my aunt to recieve before they are gone also. Their music contributed greatly to New Orleans, it helped put our city on the musical map.Huey lives in Baton Rougue, and Gerri Hall lives in New Orleans.
