They very well could. "Till Then" is a fine track.

FROM BRUCE ON DIGITAL DREAM DOOR

It's fckng hopeless with voters like this.

I've been emailing back and forth with Terry Stewart, the CEO of the hall of fame. He buys records from me. He says that the commitee to assess the older artists nominate Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris every year, but they never get put on the ballot by the main nominating committee. He is personally pushing every year for the Mills Brothers and Ravens as early infleunces, but that's going nowhere either. Then there's the Clovers and the Dominoes who are still waiting.

Then there's sht like the whole Dave Clark 5 fiasco a few years ago, and stories of doo wop groups being voted in, but not getting inducted because they want a more modern act that will draw some people to the dinner instead.

The biggest problem with things is that there is no transparency. They don't tell the public who is on these nominating commitees, and they don't tell the public how many votes each nominee got, or anything like that.

The whole thing has just become one big farce.
