  Gorillaz actually has three votes, as I listed it as my 6th album on my ballot (after I initially only voted for 5 albums as a mistake).

About Janet Jackson, KING wrote:
  Marissa really brought it with Janet Jackson support. The incredible amount of hits and success is impressive. I was always impressed with Janet's dancing, singing, songwriting. That's why the future rock legends forums are important discussing the artists. Marissa showed Janet Jackson does belong in RRHOF convincingly. JJ should be in for Black Cat alone. That song rocked! That's The Way Love Goes, Nasty Boys, Rhythm Nation other King FAVS. I think Janet Jackson has a good chance at nomination and induction. Other female candidates could be Stevie Nicks, Mariah Carrey, Pat Benatar, Carly Simon. KING

  KING,

Unfortunately, I have never seen the Duran Duran MTV Unplugged Show either.

Yes, I see Duran Duran as a "crossover prog," or "art rock" band, more specifically a hybrid of pop rock and art rock.

About Kool and the Gang, KING wrote:
  I still can't believe Kool & The Gang has failed to be inducted. Misled might be one of the best songs ever recorded. Love Emergency, Joanna, Jungle Boogie, and their hits. Roy has listed them and it takes up a good block. The lead singer has hands down one of the best voices. They can funk it up, a little R&B, play it straight up. Kool & The Gang has the musical talent to do what they want. A poster brought up Earth, Wind & Fire an excellent group who has been inducted. I don't know why they haven't been inducted. 2016 is a good year to start. KING

Have 2 Questions For You on DD. Did you like the Duran Duran MTV Unplugged Show? I never saw that show. Must have been in 1993. I was in the military then.

Also, do you see Duran Duran as art rock/prog? Kind of a progression of David Bowie & Roxy Music with their own spin on things. KING

About the Induction Criteria, KING wrote:
  Like to see RRHOF nominate 20 bands each year. Nice round number. Harder for fans to complain going to 20. Sure 3 or 4 bands might not have a shot at induction but nice for their resume. It gives more room for Prog artists and Rap and some other overlooked genres of music.I would take the 6 most voted artists inducted maybe 7 if there's a tie. Just two cents from KING!!! KING

About Rush, Enigmaticus wrote:
  I have never really understood why "2112" and "Moving Pictures" are considered to be so great. Granted, "Moving Pictures" is a great studio album, but it is not really Rush's greatest studio album. "2112" on the other hand, was important because it had opened doors for them, but I would not rank it amongst Rush's top 15 studio albums. Once again, these recordings in my honest opinion, are Rush's greatest studio albums in order:

  Donnie, I can't agree with you more when it comes to Van Morrison. A lot of his essential songs are missing in the Song Project, especially from the Moondance, Astral Weeks, and Tupelo Honey albums.

It's funny because I was going to nominate "Into the Mystic" for June as well; I guess I don't have to anymore and will, of course, definitely vote for it. I'd definitely support B.B. King for June's artist vote no matter what.

  When it comes to Van Morrison, I'm amazed that "Into the Mystic" has yet to be inducted. So I will be nominating that next month in the General Vote portion of the Song Project.

I was also planning on nominating B.B. King for the Artist Project, as we only have two songs by him presently inducted, and with his recent death, now would be as good a time as any to delve into his career and induct some more songs from him. He really should have more than two songs.

About Gordon Lightfoot, Gray Power wrote:
  Leonard Cohen is in the hall - and Gordon Lightfoot isn't?
Give me a break!

Lightfoot was a great singer, good guitar player, and one of the very best songwriters - melody & lyrics. His output was high in quality, and quantity - and still is.
If You Could Read My Mind - that song alone should get him there.

  In addition to the artists mentioned in earlier posts, would there be any support for Etta James, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, James Taylor, Allman Brothers Band or The Drifters for the Artist Vote? I totally agree with other posters that the Artist Vote should lean heavier on underrepresented artists in the Song Project. I like groups like The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin as much as the next guy but let's face it, bands like that already have many songs in the Song Project. I think it's wiser to focus on more neglected bands and that would be the strength of the Artist Vote.

About Duran Duran, KING wrote:
  Good analysis on Duran Duran. I think the Wedding album puts them over the top for induction. Duran Duran, Rio, 7 and The Ragged Tiger were strong albums. They showed their talent with 2 side projects Arcadia and Power Station scoring more hits. I've sliced it 74 different ways and Duran Duran meets the RRHOF criteria better than most.
We have to remember some music critics panned Duran Duran Sad! A fad band! that they would fade when girls became women. That did not happen. Duran Duran continued to strengthen its fan base with strong music and timeless songs. Now the critics eat crow. Duran Duran HoF !!! KING . (ea. shouD l

That would be 4.The last 2 spots could be 5 groups fighting Duran Duran, Def Leppard, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins. A final inductee list could be 1.Willie Nelson 2.Deep Purple 3.Moody Blues 4.Janet Jackson 5.Duran Duran 6.Nine Inch Nails. If they go 7, NWA, Chic, or Smashing Pumpkins slide in...
Kansas seems to be a tougher sell to make RRHOF as long as King Crimson, Yes, Moody Blues, Chicago and several waiting. I'll keep waiting too. KING

  KING,

Thank you for your opinion about Rush. If for some reason, Kansas receives a nomination for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, I will support them, however since we are only allowed to choose 5 inductees, I will not be able to vote for them, regrettably, if Duran Duran, The Moody Blues, Yes, Carly Simon and Sade appear on the same list!

About the 2015 Inductees, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Let's try this again, shall we?

According to the All Music Guide, Rush has been influenced by these various artists over the years:

Jimi Hendrix
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Mountain
Focus
Spooky Tooth
The Who
Deep Purple
Yes
Genesis
Vanilla Fudge
Gentle Giant
Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Buddy Holly
Jethro Tell
Black Sabbath
Iron Butterfly
Pink Floyd
King Crimson
Cream
Procol Harum
Led Zeppelin

According to interviews conducted over the years, several of these artists are correct. However, I have never read an article which had listed Bachman-Turner Overdrive, nor Iron Butterfly, nor Vanilla Fudge, nor Focus, nor Mountain as an influence; I would replace those instead with Jefferson Airplane, Moody Blues, The Beatles, Buffalo Springfield and Van Der Graaf Generator. I would also include the following: Supertramp, Talking Heads, Blue Cheer, U2, The Police and the New Romantic groups and possibly include Duran Duran.

Therefore, even so, there really is no level, of consistency, or agreement on whom Rush was influenced by. If this is the case, how can we agree to include, or exclude various artists if we use those criteria for determining who may or may not be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame? Rush is but one band whose longevity would have encountered various influences. Now imagine every band and how many influences which they might list.

Based upon various criteria, I offer the following artists as those who most deserve nomination for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame for 2016:

01. Duran Duran (My many comments over the years have elucidated why I feel that their induction is so overdue and important).

02. The Moody Blues (When you are co-founders of a major musical genre, your influence must not be ignored).

03. Procol Harum (ditto)

04. Yes (Founding a genre is important, but so is improving upon it. Yes has the distinction of also being innovative and influential).

05. Electric Light Orchestra (There are many reasons why this should be corrected).

06. Sade (Consistent excellence)

07. Carly Simon (very influential singer-songwriter).

08. Doobie Brothers (A good old fashioned, rock and roll band).

09. Foreigner (Lou Gramm and Mick Jones have previously been inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame).

10. Deep Purple

11. Nine Inch Nails

12. Sting

13. Chicago

14. Lionel Richie

15. The Cure

16. Smashing Pumpkins

17. Willie Nelson

18. Twisted Sister

  I would also pick Willie Nelson and Chicago.

Patsy Cline is an icon. She is the first country female to be a crossover artist. She is a huge influence. Fifty years later the songs she recorded are still being covered.

Journey - Steve Perry was dubbed the Voice by Jon Bon Jovi. Journey has influenced hair bands and metal prog. Journey songs are used a lot on singing shows.

The last 2 spots are a toss-up between the following. Moody Blues and Pat Benatar

Joan Baez - I would put her as the top female folk singer

Chubby Checker - the Twist was a cultural phenomenon.

Tommy James and the Shondels - Probably the most influential of the 60's Garage Bands. Part of the last Induction Ceremony

The Guess Who - BTO & 5 Man Electrical Band were spinoffs of this group

Jerry Reed - Highly influential and regarded guitar player. Pioneered a new style of picking. Kansas' Taking In The View is an example of Reed's influence. Check out Amos Moses.

I would consider the rest lower on the list. Of those remaining I would put Kansas on top. This is largely because Wayward Son & Dust In The Wind still get a lot of exposure. I have other projects that I am working on before I get to Kansas - so my evaluation of them may go up. Based on the Bible-Belt imagery used in their songs, I would start looking at Christian Rock, Country, Southern Rock and Heartland Rock for signs of their influence.
