Gosh.. I am the first to say anything ..? Wow LOL SO I will say it "They sure can sing..." "I'll Take You There", "Respect Yourself", I think "The Weight" live with the Band said it all..A good choice for the RRHOF Not a big HOLLYWOOD HYPE or lots of "HITS".. just a great group...

Enjoy the Show

There is no page for Mavis Staples solo. She is very popular for some reason. She still puts out new albums and they still chart on the Billboard 200.

I've seen Mavis Staples & I can tell you why she's very popular: She is badass. Great stage personality, also.

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
