  Peter Banks, Tony Kaye, Patrick Moraz and Trevor Rabin were not mentioned in the nominee bio/intro to Yes on the Rock Hall website last year. I don't know if we should be reading into it too much that Tony Kaye wasn't mentioned yet!

  And Roy, to be accurate, you need to add "vocals" to Trevor Rabin, as he sang lead vocals on several songs on each of the Yes records during the 80's. Also, you need to bave "backing vocals" with Squire, as his harmony singing is present and prominant throughout the Yes canon.

  Roy, I wouldn't mind seeing all those people go in, but I have strong doubts that either Peter Banks or Patrick Moraz. Moraz only played on one studio album, 'Relayer,' and that record is generally not put in their all time essentials, although I personally think 'Relayer' is awesome. Banks was gone and Steve Howe in by the time they started to record their really important records.

As I stated above, I could see the Hall making what I would consider to be a mistake and also leave out Trevor Rabin. I'm sure that would make Howe happy, though.

War wasn't recorded by War. War was recorded by Edwin Starr.

War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

Written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong.

About Yes, Dezmond wrote:
  Lance, I disagree that Yes will not get in. They will. But you do pose an interesting question as to which members should/would be inducted.

No brainers:

Jon Anderson
Chris Squire
Steve Howe
Rick Wakeman
Tony Kaye
Bill Bruford
Alan White

Strong argument:

Trevor Rabin


I feel that Rabin absolutely should go in, I personally love his era and he was the driving force for a decade. But there are many who do not like the Rabin era.

I would put in those eight listed above.

I usually look at it this way. Would the band be getting in to the Hall of Fame if the work done while Person X was in the band had never happened? If the answer is "no," then that person deserves induction.

With Yes, it is 'The Yes Album' through the late 70's somewhere, and the early to mid-80's. While there are fans of other periods, those periods don't really matter that much.

About Chicago, Telarock wrote:
  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?
Jon Davison
Jon Anderson
Trevor Horn
Benoit David
Oliver Wakeman
Patrick Moraz
Tony Kay
Geoff Downes
Igor Korochev
Rick Wakeman
Pete Banks
Billy Sherwood
Steve Howe
Trevor Rabin
Steve Howe
Bill Bruford
Alan White
Chris Squire

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

  I love how Roy has entire bands listed who are voting for a certain artist. Didn't the Grateful Dead get, like, eleven or twelve members inducted? So according to Roy, for instance, when he lists "The Grateful Dead" as voting for Lou Reed, he is saying that all 11 or 12 will each cast a ballot with Lou Reed on it? Without exception? See Roy, this is way too general. I think next you need to break it down by every single individual in every single band ever inducted, and then show us what each of their ballots will look like. Then you need to break down each ballot of every music critic, record exec, etc. who also get ballots. Get to work. I want to see this by sunrise.

About Annie Lennox, Telarock wrote:
  One of her best known songs apart from Eurythmics is Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves ... the song was a (the?) feminist anthem. Also Ms. Lennox was named to OBE by Queen Elizabeth for charity work and her activism in fighting AIDS. She is huge in the world of music! Wiki tells me she is on Rolling Stones "100 Greatest Female Singers" and that she has sold 80 million (80 million!!!) albums. It blows my mind to see she is not in the RRHoF, not The Eurythmics either. No More I Love You's ... sing it Annie.
I am certainly no feminist and not British, but I'd say this lady should get in, easy. Shouldn't she already be! Bloody well nominate her! lol

About Rush, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Of course, there were also other singer/songwriters, such as: Simon & Garfunkel and Carly Simon, instrumentalists such as Mason Williams (the composer of 'Classical Gas'), Henry Mancini and even Dionne Warwick, whose vocals had elevated the Hal David/Burt Bacharach songs to new heights and even a.m. radio favorites, such as Chicago which must have had a profound and lasting influence.

But nothing in my opinion, had a more lasting effect than those of other "progressive rock" bands, such as Kansas, Supertramp and Styx, in the early days.

My first cassette purchases in October, 1980 were: "Lost In Love," by Air Supply and "The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to Xanadu, by E.L.O."

The name, 'Xanadu' would also leave a much deeper impression and would inadvertently cement by interest in "progressive rock."

About Kraftwerk, Donnie wrote:
  I actually would love to see more current HOF inductees come out and say who they vote for. Which from what I see is very rare, although it's becoming a bit more common in recent years. Like I know Anthony Keidis came out and said he was voting for Cat Stevens last year.

You can certainly make guesses and assumptions based on past relationships and musical collaborations as to which nominees the HOFers would induct. Or read or watch past interviews of artists praising other artists to get ideas.

For example, I remember watching the old VH1 100 Greatest Artists of Rock N' Roll special and artists like B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, and Eric Clapton were discussing Stevie Ray Vaughan. So it's likely that they'll vote for SRV.

I don't know if stuff like that is what Roy bases his lists of who will vote for who on, but stuff like that can be a good indicator for predicting which nominees the present HOF inductees will vote for.

Either way, I wish more would come out and say who they're gonna vote for. The critics and journalists, I don't care about so much, but the actual artists that are actually HOF inductees, those would be very interesting. Although I understand why some don't say, because they probably don't want to offend the artists nominated that they're not gonna vote for.

About Rush, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Buried within the murky depths of time is the music that I had first heard while growing up. It had included such artists as: Boots Randolph, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, The Capenters, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Perry Como, Gordon Lightfoot, Al Hirt, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, the Ray Conniff singers and of course, Lawrence Welk. I did not grow up with Elvis Presley's music and the music of The Beatles was forbidden.

However, all of that had changed in mid February, 1979
when I had first heard the exquisite music of a Canadian progressive rock band named Rush and their sixth studio album, "Hemispheres."

At that time, the epic, "Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres had been the most amazing piece of music that I had ever
heard in my entire life. It was like an amalgam of those previously mentioned artists and something else, something enigmatic, almost otherworldly.

It had stopped at that then, however over a year and a half later, I would be re-introduced by a college colleague to this extraordinary music, along with the music of another band named Pink Floyd and their phenomenal studio album, "Dark Side Of The Moon."

  Another annual exercise of Roy's blind stereotyping. He does this every year. So and so are black artists, so they will naturally support other black artists. This group has a good guitarist, so they will support SRV. And on and on. No room for individual thought or tastes, just stereotypes.

  Hey Enig. I was looking at your predictions of Nominees for 2016. I'm not ready for something like that but I would say besides 70s artists. The Hall needs to catch up on 80s. I don't get into 80s art Rock bands too much. Duran Duran is one of the few I don't mind. Duran Duran should go in. I will say that they will be Nominated in the next few years. Sade also. As far as 90s I was playing Phish in the car ysterday. There's a band to go in. Most key grunge will b Inducted first.

  Sometimes the voters will post their completed ballots or comments on Twitter. For instance, I know that Flea is a Kraftwerk supporter, but I've seen no evidence on how Anthony Kiedis or John Frusciante or Chad Smith feel about Kraftwerk. It's far more interesting to dig around for these little confirmations and post them than ghettoize the whole voting committee based on stereotypes and assumptions, especially considering that bands are made up of individual people who get to vote and may have different feelings and opinions than their bandmates.

  DarinRG, Roy will not give any of us this information because it doesn't exist (basically, he makes them up). There is no proof that those artists will vote for Kraftwerk or any of the other nominees. I, for one, am tired of Roy's posts where he says "so-and-so" will vote for "so-and-so." There is no merit to Roy's claims.
