Mountain has to be considered one of those bands whose lack of commercial success has to be considered a mystery. Filling a void of American Blues Based Hard Rock, Mountain had an aggressive sound and with stellar live performances to back it up, they probably should have been a much more successful band. They broke up only a few years after they started, but it isn’t impossible that the Hall would induct them based on Mississippi Queen and love for Leslie West. The Hall has inducted artists for a lot less than that!
