  OK, get ELO in already! Or at least get Jeff Lynne in the side door like Ringo, as a non-performer for his work as a producer. Actually, that might also be a way to get Todd Rundgren in the side door as well.

  "The pure fact that ‘Never Mind the Bollocks…” has consistently made the top 5 (if not #1 or #2) of most of our reranking list makes it apparent that it should have been in our overall top 100 albums." -Nick

  John Stewart wrote Daydream Believer for the Monkees. His biggest solo hit was Gold in 1979. After Dave Guard left the Kingston Trio in 1961, he was replaced by John Stewart, who would remain with the trio until 1967.

  Just now I noticed we need to add The Clash [US] to the initial rankings. I counted 7 votes for that album which means it should be added to the other 26 albums that were nominated.

About Duran Duran, KING wrote:
  ENIG

Should be one of the most interesting RRHOF nominations 2016. The Chicago and Deep Purple inductions should clear a path for several groups. I'm really hoping Duran Duran and Moody Blues can get nominated and inducted together. The Duran Duran catalog is an amazing listen. You can easily name 50 great songs. Planet Earth, Rio, Ordinary World, Notorious, Union Of The Snake, Pop Trash, Hungry Like The Wolf, Serious,Is There Something I Should Know? The Chauffeur... That's a quick 10. These Duran Duran and Chic concerts have received excellent reviews. Maybe, the FRL regulars can get behind Moody Blues and Duran Duran. DD in their mid 50's now. No spring chickens. Let's have Duran Duran in the RRHOF while they are still in good health and can enjoy the ceremony. KING
