Certainly, from their earlier folky throwbacks to their futuristically inspired Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Wilco has a lot going for them. And, most importantly, a major label.

Sure, they have a great career so far, they have a gold record, there is a book written about them, have a huge following, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one the most acclaimed records in the 2000's and they were namechecked by Bob Dylan in his book. But they won't be inducted in their first year my guess when their first record A.M is turns 30.

Their greatness and genius won't truly be realized until long after they are gone. In ten years when every band is namechecking them as an influence, that is when they will get their due.

Wilco's catalog spans so many genres, their lyrics are provocative, and they are amazing live. They should be inducted the second they are eligible.

Saw this band at Bonnaroo. They were the opening act on What Stage for Paul McCartney. I don't know if the State Dept. got to Jeff Tweedy & said 'we want Mr. McCartney to have everyone saying his set was best, so try to suck during yours', and he complied.

Saw this band headline Sat. night at LouFest. Probably biggest crowd of weekend for them.

Paul: I had never heard of LouFest, but the line up looked great! Did you get a chance to see Trampled By Turtles? I have been a big fan for almost 2 years now and they are on my list of acts to see.

Hey Gassman! I did see Trampled by Turtles & I would have written about it if there was a page at FRL for Trampled by Turtles. Also saw great sets by Fitz & the Tantrums, Space Capone, Walk the Moon, Icona Pop (all of which do not have page at FRL).
