  Feel free to keep sending in nominations for the extended Performers list (the one below the main one that goes out to #500), everyone. Anybody already ranked on that list will make the poll and you can nominate any other artists that are eligible as of the most recent Rock Hall Projected induction year.

Once we have our pool, we'll start the polls. You'll be asked to choose twenty names each time. Ties will be broken in the poll for the next twenty artists and so forth.

  I saw Bad Company with Skynyrd this summer and Paul Rodgers was amazing. After the concert I went on YouTube and saw an unbelievable body of work by this rock superstar. No doubt Free should be in as well as Bad Company. Just great bands. PAUL Rodgers gets in by himself as well.

  You can nominate I Have Nothing if you want to PopeCharming. I know I plan on nominating Wilco- "Either Way" for sure and if "The Model" doesn't go in this genre vote it will be back next month. If "The Model" does make it I would choose "Equal Rights".

  Actually, I was about to nominate Houston's "I Have Nothing." Can I have dibs on it, so that you can nominate two of your other favorites?

On your list, I would probably vote for:

Bill Withers- Use Me (1972)
Ohio Players- Fire (1974)
Peter Tosh- Equal Rights (1977)
America- Tin Man (1974)
Peter, Paul & Mary- Early Morning Rain (1962)

"Everybody's crying out for peace, no one's crying out for justice" seems apropos right now.

Words cannot express how an alleged body or committee of executives and music peers can justify their lack of acknowledgement of an iconic band like the Moody Blues is reasonable or rationale.

About Rock Hall Projected, Darren wrote:
  Starting on Monday, December 1st, we will begin the process of re-ranking the Performers that have been inducted into the Projected / Re-Visited Project over on the Rock Rankings messageboard (http://www.futurerocklegends.com/Revisited_Projected_Rankings.php). We will be re-ranking the Performers every two years to account for the past two years inductee classes.

Anyone who is interested can participate in this process. Here's how the process will work:

Round 1 Nominations will open on December 1st (the same time as the Song Project and Album Project). Each voter can nominate 100 performers from the list of 312 performers that have been voted into the Projected / Re-Visited Project. We haven't determined if voters will be required to nominate 100 performers or if a minimum number of nominees for Round 1 will be required (in case someone tries to nominate one performer to give them a better chance of being ranked). Round 1 Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on Saturday the 6th.

The 20-25 performers that receive the most nominations will be involved in a two-day initial ranking vote, where voters will rank the top 15-20 eligible performers of their preference to determine the top 10 performers in the rankings. This process will end at 10 PM Central on Monday the 8th.

The 10 performers (or more in the event of a tie for 10th) that finish highest in the initial rankings will advance to the final rankings. In the final rankings, voters will rank all 10 performers in their order of preference. The combined rankings will be the final rankings of the top 10 performers. If you've never participated in a ranking or induction project before, you'll need to participate in one (or attempt to participate in one) before your vote in a final ranking will be counted in any round.

In the event of a tie in the final rankings, the first tiebreaker will be the performer's score in that round's initial rankings. The second tiebreaker will be a higher ranking tiebreaker from that round's final rankings (which performer did each voter rank higher). The third tiebreaker will be a higher ranking tiebreaker from that round's initial rankings. The final tiebreaker will be the performer's rankings in the 2012-2013 Performer rankings. If two newly-added performers end up in an unbreakable tie, we'll have a straight-up tiebreaker vote to resolve the tie after the conclusion of all rounds of ranking in the project.

The final ranking vote will end at 10 PM Central on Wednesday the 10th.

Round 2 Nominations will be from Wednesday the 10th until Saturday the 13th. Performer nominations for Performers that haven't been ranked will carry over from round to round. Each voter will only need to replace their nominees after they have been ranked. Voters can rescind one of their previous nominations in order to nominate additional performers if they like, but otherwise nominated performers will stay nominated until ranked.

When we can (Christmas will throw a wrench in the schedule), we'll stick to the Saturday, Monday, Wednesday one-week schedule for each round.

Starting in Round 2, we'll rank 15 performers (#11-#25) until we finish ranking the Top 100. Starting with #101, we'll either rank 20 or 25 performers per round until all 312 performers have been ranked.

Enig, glad you can take our disagreements in stride and with humour. I hope you know that most of them time I'm poking fun at you in the same spirit.

While we may debate over genres, classifications, and so forth we do agree that Duran Duran is a great, great band and completely falls within the criteria established by the Rockhall for induction. Influence, Innovation, and Musical Excellence. No question in all three areas.

I would put DD in my Top 10 Snubs list easily.

I didn't vote for White Lines because I feel it should be credited to Grandmaster Melle Mel rather than Grandmaster Flash, which would make it technically ineligible for this vote. I do believe it should have gotten in ages ago, however.

Hmmm... very good point, and now I am embarrassed that I didn't realize that. At best it was Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel, and probably in reality Flash probably had nothing to do with it. The song should definitely be on our project, but probably not in this voting category. Drat.

  Simon le Bon, the Taylor Brothers...never used sex appeal in their recordings/videos. NosireeeBob, never happened.

'Hungry like the Wolf' is about a poor man with an eating disorder.

About Rush, Enigmaticus wrote:
  The recurring theme of "Presto" appears to be about change.

'Show Don't Tell' addresses the issue of evolution, which in itself, implies change, referencing the famous Scopes Monkey Trial, in the process.

'Scars' deals with atmospheric change. In this case, the increasing desertification of sub-Saharan Africa.

'Presto' deals with personal change.

'Red Tide' deals with environmental change, in this case the polluting of the oceans.

'Available Light' deals with the forces of nature, more specifically wind and light and
their effects upon our lives.

  So-called "new wave" is a commercial umbrella term used to describe music after the advent of punk; it covers over 130 different genres.

"Pop" implies popular music, played often by sexually provocative female artists.

"Art rock," or "Crossover Prog" is the more commercial side of "progressive rock," this includes groups such as: Supertramp, The Moody Blues, Roxy Music, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, amongst others.

  KING,

Thank you for your support. I hope that the members of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Nominating Committee will view "A Diamond In The Mind" and "Duran Duran: Unstaged." This may help them realize how ridiculously overlooked Duran Duran has been. Yes, I would also agree that Duran Duran would tower above most of the 2015 nominees. :-)

  Dez,

I was R.O.F.L.M.A.O.T.W.A.D.R. at that one. But seriously, in the early days, Rush had opened for some very unusual bands, namely The New York Dolls, Sha Na Na and KISS, so a pairing with Duran Duran would not really be that weird. ;-)
