The Shadows of Knight should get a chance to get in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Many think that Them (Van Morrison's old band) wrote Gloria which is false, Shadows of Knight did. Also a lot of older bands are not geting their dues. But hey even if it is not rock n roll it can get in the Hall of Fame now.

Van Morrison DID write "Gloria" and recorded it with Them. The Shadows Of Knight were just asked to record a More radio-friendly version of "Gloria" taking out the lyrics that were considered "sexually explicit" at the time.

I don't think the Shadows of Knight have much of a chance. The only major hit they had was a cover of "Gloria" by Them (Van Morrison's band) and Them aren't even inducted!

Pat Benatar should've joined these gents.

Believe it or not, but they actually had a few other singles besides their cover of "Gloria"

I'm a friend of Jimy Sohns but they have no chance. To get in the hall you must have a long career or have changed Rock in a historical sense. They did neither. That sad they were a really good and tight little garage band. All said and done is that not what counts.

Hawk Wolinski was in this band before he joined Rufus. They took the British style and added back some of the Chicago touch.
