Brilliant musician. Thankfully, he's been honored by the Blues Hall of Fame. (Inducted in 2000).

Recorded great version of "Mystery Train" but not famous enough for the Hall.

Unbelievable oversight by The Rock Hall. Little Junior Parker's music serves as a witness to the emergence of Rock and Roll from The Blues. Hard to explain many of the other inductees while he is absent.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
