398. Luther Vandross

This page generously sponsored by: Nobody yet! Sponsor it on Patreon to be the first name on this list!

As one of the most successful R&B singers of the 80’s and 90’s, Luther Vandross dominated the charts and sold out arenas across the United States. Vandross was as creative as he was smooth, and he took more ownership of his music than a lot of R&B stars did at that time. As popular and innovative as Vandross was, the bulk of his music was veering towards Adult Contemporary sounds and though he was revered in multiple circles there are few interpretations of Luther Vandross that screamed out Rock and Roll.

The fact that one of the most melodic and talented singers of our time is not in the RRHOF just makes the Hall that much more of a joke! I wonder what the demographics look like on the voting here! Let me guess - all of the fans of "The King of Rock and Roll" are No votes for Luther Vandross. Little surprise there. Many probably don't even know who Luther Vandross is.
