About The Song Project, Nick wrote:
  I want to propose Cover Songs as a potential genre. This includes songs that were remade either as popular singles or deep cuts on albums. Some examples of popular cover singles would include Cat Stevens' "Another Saturday Night" (1974) [A Remake of the Sam Cooke song], Linda Ronstadt's "That'll be the Day" (1976) [A Remake of the Buddy Holly song] and James Taylor's "How Sweet It Is" (1975) [A Remake of the Marvin Gaye song]. Some examples of deep cut covers would be Creedence Clearwater Revival's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (1968) [A Remake of the Marvin Gaye song], Led Zeppelin's "You Shook Me" (1969) [A Remake of the Muddy Waters song] and Nirvana's "The Man Who Sold the World" (1994) [A Remake of the David Bowie Song]. I think this would be a great category for voting that can be really diverse in terms of potential artists/songs.

About Stevie Nicks, Shannon wrote:
  I have seen many comments for why Stevie should not be in the HOF obviously written by people who have no real clue as to the extent of Stevie's solo career. Madonna and Pat Benatar, though very talented and iconic in their own right, are not even in the same league. Name 30 songs that they wrote to their own credit. Nope, you can't. Give the Queen her place in the Hall, she earned it!!! She is an icon, a world class songwriter, singer, performer, and humanitarian. Her solo work and career rivals many (male and female), and it is time to give her this honor. Otherwise, the HOF is the Hall of Shame.

  Nominations for next month open at 10 PM Central. Every voter can nominate one album from 2014 and one album from 2014 or prior to 2014. Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 2nd.


The following albums are automatically nominated as the result of losing the tiebreaker in last month's Album Project Vote or Genre Project Votes:

Blink 182 - Enema of the State (1999)
The Spinners - Spinners (1973)
War - Why Can't We Be Friends? (1975)

Each voter must vote for exactly 6 albums to have their ballot count.

There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 7th. The top 5 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.


This month's genre will be "90's American Alternative Rock", which was selected as a result of losing a tiebreaker vote last month.

There will be another genre selection vote next month, so if you want to nominate a genre for consideration next month, you can nominate it until 10 PM on Thursday the 2nd.

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated album, but only if they feel that the album is being nominated inapproriately. Any album that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Album Project vote.

There will be one genre vote this month. Please feel free to discuss potential nominees during the Album Project nomination and voting process.

The following songs are automatically nominated as a result of losing a tiebreaker in last month's Song Project Vote or in last month's Genre Votes or because an artist with a song in Voter's Choice had a different song inducted into the Project previously:

Air - All I Need (1998)
Bad Company - Can't Get Enough (1974)
Cypress Hill - How I Could Just Kill a Man (1991)
Dr. John - Big Gap (2010)
Kacey Musgraves - Follow Your Arrow (2013)
My Bloody Valentine - When You Sleep (1991)
Sam Smith - Stay With Me (2014)


Each voter will be required to vote for exactly 12 songs for their ballot to be counted. Voters who cast ballots of less than 12 songs will be notified, but if their ballots are not corrected, they won't be counted.

There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 7th. The top 10 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.


This month's selected genre is "1970's R&B and Soul", which finished second in a tiebreaker last month.

About Fleetwood Mac, Jason Voigt wrote:
  Saw them perform last weekend in St. Louis! (with Christine McVie) I went in thinking the show was going to be so-so, with all the hits. But boy, was I more than blown away. Every member put in more than their 100 percent in the show. They did pretty much every hit from their classic era (1976-87), and just about every song from 'Rumours'. Mick Fleetwood can still bang the drums and go crazy at the same time! Much of the attention was focused on Christine McVie, who 'retired' from the group 16 years back, but she was glad to be part of the band again. All 3 of the vocalists were great. Definitely one of the greatest concerts I've attended in a while!

I'm not go as far as saying I'm a Fleetwood Mac fan, but I know what makes them great and respectable in rock and roll. Their music still gets played on several radio stations because they fit into that category along with a few other groups from that era (the Eagles, Chicago, etc). The average person can at least name 5 songs from them, because their music is timeless. And let's not forget the struggles within the band, which arguably made them more successful at the same time. I do like all of their songs, even some off the panned 'Tusk' album. Heck I even like a few before the Buckingham/Nicks era.

About Stevie Nicks, Jason Voigt wrote:
  Saw her perform last weekend in St. Louis with Fleetwood Mac. (See my following post on Fleetwood Mac) Stevie still HAS it. She's still got her voice, her moves and her personality. And, as some would suspect, it was a bit weird. She kept rambling on her stories, some of which were interesting. I know she's had drug problems in the past, so that's pretty evident. She probably had work done on her face, but nonetheless she looked great!

Does she belong in the RRHOF as a solo artist? Absolutely. Unfortunately, we all know there are several female solo acts in her field that are waiting to get in.....
