Most Definitely. Manhattans,
Should have been in years ago.
It's time for The R n R Hall of Fame,
to get their nominating committee together.
It's also time for organization to realize
that this is not just the 'Rock Hall' of fame, but
the 'rock n ROLL hall of Fame. Let's not forget
about these American Vocal Groups... rock n roll was born & bred in The USA.... Where are
'The Spinners'?
