|Peter Cetera, blue-eyed soul? I dunno. The term applies well to Daryl Hall. It is valid ico Annie Lennox, Eric Burdon, Tom Jones other notables. Cetera?|
As to Raymond's comment Chicago v. Beatles: Mercifully (imo) The Beatles split up, went their separate ways while they were still going strong. Chicago should have disbanded long ago. Going long does not equate to going strong! It usually only equates to "oldies" group.
Also, I myself respect the people who run the Rock Hall. If you don't respect the institution, why do you even care about yor artist getting in or not? Rolling Stone and MTV don't completely control everything. Jann Wenner has/had influence as well he should, but nobody annointed him dictator. I would encourage disgruntled fans to stop whining about Wenner, he puts his pants on same as you! Of course, after he puts his pants on, he has an empire that he runs! lol. SNL joke.
About Yes, Lance wrote:
|Yes will never get in because the RRHOF is really a Pop Hall of Fame. Weird Al will get in before Yes, Yes is simply not mainstream enough for a Pop Hall of Fame. Blondie? Hall and Oats? Really?|
Getting snubbed is nothing new. Steve Howe regularly get's left off most Top Guitarist lists while he is arguably one of the top 5 of all-time when it comes to versatility and flat out talent.
Another issue for Yes is the 18 member roll call. Who would go?
About the 2015 Nominees, Ben wrote:
|Hey Enig, I was looking over your predictions for the 2015 Inductees. If I got this right. You're predicting Green Day and Nine Inch Nails along with people like Lou Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan. You also list Sting solo and a couple others I didn't predict. Now you see I think the Hall will Induct 6 again. Also I think a Rap artist will be chosen. I am venturing to say that Green Day and Nine Inch Nails could be inducted at the same time when I think about it. I think NIN will be prevented this year though due to NWA. I don't like Rap but since they skipped Rap last year they'll have one this year. If you consider that Lou Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan are pretty sure ones out of the 6 and that I predict Chic after 9 noms. There is also a mellow old R&B choice with Spinners I predict. Then there's no room for NIN. Now if the Hall goes back to 7 choices then I do think Nine Inch Nails can go in. The Hall likes being somewhat older with choices. Hence the Lou and Stevie Ray|
