And if I may add to the discussion, I would also like to see inducted:
The Moody Blues
Yes (nominated once)
Emerson Lake & Palmer
Procol Harum (nominated once)
And....although their chances of getting into the Hall are slim at best, I'd like to see on the notinthehalloffame list....
1. The Fixx (the best MTV 80's band, IMHO---why aren't they on the 500 list? Still together today...)
2. The Call (passionate rock band, cut from the same cloth as U2. Brilliant band, led by the late, great Michael Been. Always critically respected and they've always had a devoted cult following)
3. Renaissance (magnificent progressive rock band with a devoted cult following. Still together.) - Musicologist999
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.
