The Scottish Hard Rock group Nazareth had a great run in the 70’s with some driving Rock songs and a Proto Power Ballads. There is not a Classic Rock station in North America that doesn’t play their songs. Nazareth did achieve a level of success that could potentially garner them a look from the Hall and there is no doubt that straight up Rock bands have a place in the Hall. There is however a long line up of bands like Nazareth and the question is whether they could overtake the others of their ilk who may be ahead of them.
