They formed in 1941. Shouldn't their first year of eligibility be 1966?

Only one album charted in 1973, but they had been making music as a duo since 1941. They each had solo careers in the 1930s. They will most likely be inducted as a duo though in the Early Influence category.

They were a big influence on Bernie Taupin.
