How the hell is Son House not in as an influence??? He was a major influence on Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters!!!

Wikipedia article...

"Dick Waterman relates that when The Rolling Stones met Howlin' Wolf in 1965, they asked who the older man with him was, toward whom Howlin' Wolf was so respectful. They were awestruck to hear it was Son House, whom they knew as "the man who taught Robert Johnson"."

It is long overdue for Son House to get inducted. He deserved to get in with the first class!!! 25 years and they still haven't figured out how to run the hall...

Is Son House really going to be announced as an early influence inductee for 2013?

He's certainly worthy.
