154. Lenny Kravitz
He did not have a lot of success as “Romeo Blue” when he looked back at developing a Retro Funk career, but under his given name of Lenny Kravitz, success was found when he channelled a Classic Blues based Rock sound mixed with a bit of Psychedelic. Retro is a great word to describe Kravitz as everything from his style, his stage presence and of course his music, had a “retro cool” feel. Even though he had a remarkably consistent career, it is that Retro label that could work against him as the Hall may feel that he was not innovative enough and musically looked too much to the past as opposed to the future.

Maybe not super inovaitive.
But is a blast from the past 60s/70s (Jimmy Hendrix kid)
Also one of only a few black Rock Songer Guitar players. Hendrix berry prince and a few others.
Very talented worthy of Conserdiatio n. :-|
