In a world dominated by black female singing

The Shangrilas rock big time. Time for rock and roll history lessons for all the "historians" on the committee !

The Shangri-Las featuring the inimitable Mary Weiss
The Shangri-Las were the quintessential girl group. The fact that the Ronettes were recently inducted to me bodes well for The Shangri-Las. They were the spokeswomen for a generation.

The Shangri-Las were unique and unlike any other girl group of their time.

Yes, The Shangri-Las should and will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In many ways, Mary Weiss & The Shangs set rock 'n' roll standards and surely made break-throughs. All of their incredible recordings showcase great music and effective singing. Every Red Bird single released by The Shangri-Las has stood the tough test of time!

Was this only white girl group of the 50s-60s?

The first white girl group to hit No. 1 was The Angels with "My Boyfriend's Back" in August of '63, FIFTEEN months before the Shangri-Las' "Leader of The Pack"

Very important link /influence in the history of punk and rock music.

They had the nerve to have Mary announce Ronnie Spector's induction.

Nothing against the Shangri-Las, Linda, but check your facts. Keith Richards announced/presented them.

I think it is a disgrace for Rock & Roll that the original Shangri-Las have not yet been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Shame, Shame!!

Aside from digging their sound when i was 11 or 12 years old, i think the Shangri-las should be in the Hall of Fame because they were an important transitional group between the sweet sentimentality of wanting to be Bobby's Girl and the harder edged punk and rock sounds that were to follow. Blondie, Pat Benatar and the others owe a mountain of gratitude to the Shangri-las for helping to pave the way. Jann Wenner and company, wake up!

Hi all. I am attempting to get the Shangri-Las into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where they belong!!!

The Hall can comfortably do without a Jewish carnival troupe from Brooklyn, but they could sure use a Jewish girl group from Queens. Shangri-Las rule!

Hello to all the groovy hip cats and kittens out there who understand just how important the Shangri-las are. I just soft launched a new social networking side to my site www.Rockabillymodel.com and recently wrote a blog about the Shangs, and started a new group called The Shangri-Las Fan Club. Join our free "community" and lets work together to get the girls in the HOF where they belong. Thanks Joe.

The Shangri-Las would be the first all white female group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Whoever gives the induction speech for the Shangri-Las better mention the fact that they are the first all-white female group to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
