Historically one of the premier Hard Rock bands and perhaps the best to come from Australia, AC/DC continues to sell out arenas and rock millions. There is little doubt among anyone that the Aussie powerhouses are worthy of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.…
Although Steven Tyler may look like an aging transvestite, there was no doubt that Aerosmith was one of the top Rock acts of the 70’s. With a successful comeback in the 80’s that lasted well over a decade, the band cemented their legacy as one…
The heart of the Mississippi Delta has brought the world a lot of great musicians, and one of its best has to be the left handed Blues guitarist, Albert King. Normally it isn’t a big deal to be left handed, but when you didn’t restring…
As popular music grew, television made it a visual medium. Landmark moments were created; as anyone alive could tell you about the first time they saw the grinding hips of Elvis Presley or waiting in anticipation to see the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.…

One of the first true stars of Rock and Roll, Bill Haley could have made a case for entry just on the strength of “Rock Around the Clock”. There can be much debate as to whether Haley was Rock’s first star (which some have called…

The first real Heavy Metal band in the Hall could very well be the most important. Sabbath took music to dark pounding places and they helped to propel the genre to new heights. Although they are in the Hall, they should have been a first…
Though some of labeled Blondie nothing more than a Disco and/or New Wave band, they were incredibly versatile and they had an incredible range. The technically proficient band was propelled by the looks of their lead singing siren, Debbie Harry and though she got them…
He was called the “Originator” and no other nickname could have been more accurate for Bo Diddley. He was the key man in incorporating Blues to Rock and Roll and his guitar patterns influenced multiple artists that followed. His signature song featured his own name…
