I'm guessing this is the first time a band didn't have a page on FRL before being nominated?

So they want to give second inductions for Bobby Byrd (The Famous Flames) and Bootsy Collins (Parliament-Funkadelic).

Not true! This page has been here for a few months.

Once again, the Rock Hall committee trying very hard find a black group to nominate that wasn't as commercially successful as Kool & the Gang and the Commodores. Let's see, The Meters, War, and oh, now it's The J.B.'s.

The J.B.'s should have gotten the Sidemen/Musical Excellence nod. They were not Main Performers . They were BACKUPS for JAMES BROWN & THE FAMOUS FLAMES.They are definitely deserving , but putting them on the ballot almost certainly will result in failure.

FRL - Would you be able to say that if they nominated The Wailers instead? ;)

Instead of only honoring just the JB's (which was actually a LATER incarnation of The James Brown Band, consisting of old and new members), the RRHOF should have listed them as The JAMES BROWN BAND / The JB's , so that the OTHER members of James Brown's legendary 60's band who were NOT a part of the '70's JB's could have also shared in the honor.

How about sorting through a bunch of J.B.'s to see who is worthy of induction? If they're so willing to sort through all these guys, I have no idea why they would balk at nominating the Steve Miller Band. SMB is child's play compared to the J.B's.

Will the J.B.'s make it to 1 million votes before Rock Hall fan poll closes? December 15 is the last day.

I really wanna see them in for no other reason than to give Bootsy a double induction.
