With his release of Tubular Bells, the haunting theme from the Exorcist, Mike Oldfield had a surprise number one hit in England on his hands. Oldfield had indirectly ushered in the New Age genre and as such became known as one of the most respected musicians in England. He never reached that level of success but by pushing the Electronic platform he does meet the influence category that the Hall claims to look for.
