Hi David. I'm about to pull my hair out. I just commented on John Lennon and I was the first to do it and before that I commented on Paul Mcartney and there was one there and now I'm here and there is only one comment for the Grateful Dead. Does anyone like the 60's anymore.

Bands with more than 9 members inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

For crying out loud, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inducted 12 members of the Grateful Dead in 1994, including Robert Hunter, the lyricist for the band! That's right, they inducted the lyricist as a member of the band! They inducted a non-performer in the performers category! So, the Rock Hall better induct Marv Tarplin with The Miracles. Marv Tarplin was a member of the Miracles. He was not a sideman.

Roy, they didn't induct the ex-drummer from The Tubes who also was in Grateful Dead for a short period of time, did they?

Why would you ask that? No they didn't. Inductees listed above

Roy, I asked that because the dude screwed up & didn't wait for the Jerry Mourning Period to be over before he offed himself.

No drummer from the Tubes was ever in the Dead, It was only Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann

Why is Jerry Garcia the only person allowed to tell the Rock Hall which members of his band have to be inducted!?
Posted by Roy on Wednesday, 04.17.13 @ 23:27pm
Roy - I know you posted it a couple years ago, but what were you talking about with that question? Jerry was opposed to the idea of the Rock Hall and didn't even show up for his induction. The only members of the Dead not inducted were pianist Bruce Hornsby (who was never officially a member of the band, but toured with them for 2 years) and lyricist John Perry Barlow.

It's a well-known fact that Jerry Garcia got to tell Jann Wenner (a fan) to induct not only the original members of the Grateful Dead plus their lyricist, but a few other later members as well. Not every band gets to make that call for their band. Favoritism at play in the Rock Hall.

That's really interesting. I've always wondered why the Dead got nearly all of their members in, while The Allman Brothers Band, who had similar lineup changes only got the original members in.

All those folks were inducted because the Grateful Dead itself was a living thing. It was not about any particular people, except *maybe* Jerry Garcia. It was a living, breathing spirit, itself beyond categorization.
