I really liked this band in the 80s. I think Tom Bailey is a very good songwriter and guitarist. I don't see a Hall induction for them though.

This one is interesting. The band's original line-up consisted of eight members for the first two albums. Management narrowed the group down to three members. The classic line-up of Tom Bailey, Alannah Currie and Joe Leeway were actually looking to start another band on the side, but they ended up staying and keeping the name, Thompson Twins. If they were to be inducted it would only be the three of them, but they won't be.
