Not a rock & roller, per say, but highly repected as a songwriter by Springsteen, Gabriel, Sting, etc. I saw her tour with Sting in late 90's and she put on a great, professional performance. There is an excellent live show available for streaming on Wolfgang's Vault from Oakland Coliseum 5/27/89.

If Tracy Chapman is nominated, that means the RRHOF is recognizing one of its local Heroes/heroines. Chapman was born in Cleveland on March 30, 1964

Don't you think Fast Car sounds like Jack and Diane from John Mellencamp?

Interesting though about "Fast Car" - it does actually have similarities in structure. It's too bad for Tracy that she did nto do much apart from "Give Me One Reason" after her first album, which ruins her chances completely
