I find that all this chatter about Coven and others that brought so little not even laughter typical . A true LADY ,POET, REAL SINGER ,STAR.. Has only 103 votes and Madonnna is IN??
I guess at this forum it is like so many in Hollywood "What have ya done for me lately"

Lovely lady with an enchanting voice. I'd like to see her make it, but don't know that she will.

"Send In The Clowns" pretty much sums up the HOF selection process much of the time . . . Judy has a magnificent voice, and she helped popularize the work of folks like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and even John Lennon ("In My Life") . . . (not that Lennon needed any help, mind you) . . . she belongs in the Hall . . .

She is not in?

You know, there is a saying, if the club does not want me in it, why should I want to be? Thanks for all the support from so many of you, I love that, and on the surface, since I am both folk rock and art singer, perhaps I could slip into one of the slots for oddball artists-=but really, if they don't want you, why should you want them?
I am with Letterman, when he complains that the great Paul Schaeffer has never made it into the R&R Hall of Fame--now, being a great fan of Paul's and that amazing band, I am shocked and awed that they are not there. Me? Well, life is long, they say. And full of surprises. God Bless You all. Judy Collins

Good to get a celebrity gracing our site!

Judy Collins is a ROLE MODEL Princess (Leader!) for current and future generations, hands down! Judy’s voice and talent is timeless and genius – a gift from God! Judy doesn’t just simply sing, she plays the piano, guitar, keyboards expertly – while singing most beautifully. To this day and with passion . . . Judy authors books, writes, composes and arranges music, gives speeches, tours nonstop as if she were 25 years old! Judy does all of this with intellect and grace. I look for her concerts locally every year. When Judy performs at Wolf Trap – it’s a summer highlight indeed! I have a vision, which is that I would love to see a future “Tour” with three great legends -- Judy Collins, Neil Diamond, and Barbara Streisand. I encourage these three to become friends and tour together, as it would be awesome. With the music they have written and sung – including songs of the same title – their tour could be called something to the effect -- “Love and Life” tour. Some songs could be a “twin-spin” with Judy and Neil singing, say for example, “Suzanne”. Barbra and Judy could sing “Memory”. All three could sing together – “Amazing Grace” -- . . . and so on. I hope these three awesome legendary talents collaborate and strut their stuff. What a gift to the world that “Threesome Tour” would be. Heck, look at how three musicians -- Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Luke Bryan good-naturedly sang at the Country Music Awards 2012 – “Only Way I Know” – and wow’d the world. You will have dropped the ball if you delay inducting Judy Collins into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Chop chop -- Time is a ticking . . .

Deanna I'm sure that tour as well as all those specific songs will happen once you loose your virginity.

Mikhail - What a pity. Ego surpasses great vision. Mr. Know-It-All with Snotty Nose Snide Remarks – If people (including musicians) in fact embrace an attitude such as yours, then it stands to reason that this world has more despicable egotistical people than decent ones. BTW, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes is a child of Woodstock and sang on rock n’ roll radio stations a few decades ago. Remember? Judy is a diverse musician who has sung songs of Dylan and other famous rockers. If RRHF doesn’t induct JC, then what good are they, really?

Now Now folks lets not tarnish this page with bad thoughts... It's all about the passion of hope ,love and the music ... like Ms Collins said "Life is full of surprises,",, and God Bless you Judy....

My personal favorite Judy Collin's song is Farewell to Tarwaithe. It was the first time many of us had heard actual whale song. The song had a profound impact on the way we viewed nature and the effect of our actions on animals and the environment.

Induct her.

Posted by Roy on Monday, 04.25.16 @ 22:11pm

With Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez in
I see no reason for her not to be included
