I am kind of surprised there is 0% chance for the group that sang the song "Sixteen Candles"

Looks like they've got a 1% chance now Brian

Johnny Maestro is one of those people who really SHOULD be in... except none of his efforts by themselves really warrant induction. The Crests were a good group, "Step By Step" is a really good song and "Sixteen Candles" is something of a standard (though not too big of one, imo), but they didn't really do a lot in terms of Influence and Innovation. Maestro's success as a solo artist is virtually non-existent. And the Brooklyn Bridge is a pretty non-descript group that got lost in the shuffle. Yet, add the three together, and you've got a decent case for Johnny Maestro as an entity in the music business.

But that's not how the RnRHoF operates, and as such, is never going to happen anytime soon.

ITS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT WE EVEN HAVE TO ASK IF JOHNNY MAESTRO IS GOING TO BE IN THE HALL OF FAME. HIS VOICE IS UP THERE WITH TONY WILLIAMS FROM THE PLATTERS AND DION DIMUCCI. WE HAVE PETITIONS WITH OVER 5 THOUSAND ON STATEN ISLAND ALONE AND WE JUST STARTED IT. JOHNS GETTING MORE POUPLAR NOW THAN EVER EVERY ONE THAT LISTENS CANT BELIEVE HOW GREAT HE REALLY WAS. HES GOT FANS AS YOUNG AS 15 NOW. PLEASE CONSIDER HIM AND ALL HES DONE WITH 911 FAMILIES AND ANYONE WHO NEEDED HELP. A HEART OF GOLD HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS. SINCERLY BOBBY APPELLO RIP JOHN WE LOVE YOU

I am very surprised. I am doing everything I can to help Johnny Maestro's group get into the Hall Of Fame. There is no excuse for why this man's group shouldn't be in the Hall Of Fame. I am helping the family with petitions and we are fighting this. I will not give up till I see the results change. I am a 25 year old from the 80s generation, I am asking for a chance to have our generation never forget where music came from. The 60's was a big Era. This generation is exposed to rap music that is violating respect. I will not go down without a fight. I stand ground when I say Johnny will be in the Hall Of Fame.

There are enough doo wop bands in the Hall already - the Crests are simply not major league.

You've never heard of "Sixteen Candles?"

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 11.15.11 @ 14:21pm


I've heard of the song, Tahvo. I think I tongue-in-cheek posted that in response to the heartfelt plea by 'Dana A' above.

I don't think they have enough material. '16 Candles' is a great song, though.

Posted by Paul in KY on Wednesday, 11.16.11 @ 07:50am


Ah, thanks for clarifying, Paul.
