390. Lionel Richie

Although these days Lionel Richie might be best known for being Nicole Richie’s father, it can not be underestimated just how much Lionel Richie dominated the FM dial in the 1980’s. Lionel’s career had a meteoric rise upon leaving the Commodores and his R&B flavored Soft Rock was a favorite among the vinyl buying public. Richie however may not have had enough of a Rock edge about him and frankly anyone who is overshadowed this much by his no talent daughter can easily be overshadowed by other Hall candidates.
