Firstly is Wynonie Harris, alias "Mr. Blues"; he has to have influenced a number of R&B and Soul artists; he should be there on general principle.
The second act I mention is going to get me some very loud ridicule, yet I feel this artist should be there - she has been an influence on the artist we call "The Material Girl", who even noted this artist's influence when interviewed for a magazine article in 1985.
To put it in her terms, "False eyelashes, blonde hair, mini-skirt, leather boots - she was cool."
I speak, of course, of one Nancy Sandra Sinatra, eldest daughter of Frank Sinatra.
True, she was primarily a pop singer, she did record a whole boatload of songs which are well worth hearing, I think; after all, between 1965 and 1970, she had eight hit songs on the charts.
I welcome your comments.
As for Toto, i just rewatched Dune (where beer really helped) and was surprised to read "Music by Toto" in the opening credits.Somehow I never investigated the entire Dune phenomenon. I've known people who raved about the book, and even a couple who raved about the film. As someone who loves Plan 9 from Outer Space, I owe it to myself to watch Dune sometime. I love bad sci-fi flicks.
Agreed. Twenty-five years is plenty.]]>
Anyway, i can't see a longer waiting period helping much. 25 years seems long enough already, and playing the money card, a Hall of Fame induction ceremony where the acts waited 50 years, could be quite...well...morbid.

Johnny Cash went to that big gig in the sky in 2003, but the Man in Black's silver and black tour bus will be on the road again next week in Northeast Ohio. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum acquired the legendary country singer's luxury coach -- christened JC Unit One -- as part of its permanent collection in 2007.
