This induction was certainly deserved.

I would agree here. One of their best songs is "Carry Me Back", a song that unfortunately gets overlooked. I use that song as their "Song of Proof" in my Hall Of Fame folder on my computer.

I bet the fact Dino Danelli later went on to play in Steven Van Zandts's (who inducted them) Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul might have had something to do with these guys getting in and not similar artists from the same era like The Grass Roots or The Guess Who

But I agree their induction was well deserved. One of the best blue-eyed soul bands ever.

Actually, come to think of it, I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that first post (it was a few months ago now). The fact the Rascals got in over bands like the Guess Who or Grass Roots clearly had to do with the fact they were more innovative and influential. Whereas both of the last two are kind of lumped in with a bunch of other bands from that decade who were good, yes, but did they really have Hall of Fame careers? The Rascals certainly did.

I got to meet Felix tonight when he played with his band (which he dubs 'The Young Rascals'). Very great guy and not only did he play the hits but also several covers medleys (including Led Zeppelin!)
