The two main songwriters in ‘70s jazz-rock group Chicago — Lamm and Pankow — were honored separately in a slightly awkward performance, the former inducted by Pat Monahan from “Train,” who also sang lead a medley of his songs, and then Lamm sang his own. Pankow had disappeared from the stage before his acceptance speech (bathroom break?) but joined Lamm at the podium after a few minutes.

About Miley Cyrus, Zuzu wrote:
  Miley definitely de-Disnified herself. Were you aware of her desire to have a all nude concert - audience included?

She does go out there but I think she also has another side to her too that is artistic in another way. This seems to come out on the Voice and in the videos she does.

About the eligibility class of 2018, Philip wrote:
  Seriously Tina?

Just a reminder, this is a list of those who will be NEWLY eligible in 2018, for the Class of 2019. So, you are either woefully mistaken as to the purpose of this list, horribly ignorant of music history, or extremely bad at math.

About Miley Cyrus, Paul in KY wrote:
  I lik Miley Cyrus & hope to see her in concert someday. I think she's a fine singer & a fine person. She's a proud Democrat & a proud Kentucky girl.

Also like the thorough way she de-Disnified her image & got rid of the Hanna Montana persona.

About Miley Cyrus, Zuzu wrote:
  I don't think people are giving Miley Cyrus enough credit for her vocals. May I suggest checking out her backyard sessions and happy hippy videos.

Some comment that she sounds a lot like Stevie Nicks. Personally I think she sounds more like Melanie and they are hearing Melanie's influence on Stevie Nicks.

There are also comments that she should go the country or folk route.

About The Pointer Sisters, Telarock wrote:
  Some merit to comment by Philip above. "Fire" was a song Springsteen wrote originally for Elvis (The Boss and The King), but Elvis died bfor ever recording it. The song fell to the P.S. sung by Anita and bcame a huge hit for them, I think it was their 1st ever Gold single. It was a song much more suited to a female singer bcus of the lyrics.

Also "Fairytale" was a song written by the P.S. and which got them a Grammy award. Elvis loved that song, called it "the story of my life." Elvis recorded Fairytale and sang it pretty regularly in his concerts. Check it out, Elvis version below.

About Daft Punk, Timothy wrote:
  should Electronic artists like Kraftwerk, Mental As Anything and Jesse Saunders be added first, yes

unfortunately, the RHOF has the habit of added new artists before the pioneers.

electronic music and its sub-genres like house, has had a silent impact and influence on rock music, its something a lot of people don't notice or give credit to.
