Hootie and the Blowfish

A lot of big things were pegged for Hootie and the Blowfish.  Their 1994 album, Cracked Rear View, dominated the radio with their mainstream appeal of Country and Blues based light Rock and Roll found a massive audience and an unexpected “cool” appeal.  They never did replicate that success and though that was expected, it wasn’t expected just how fast they seemingly fell off the radar.  They did have a period of success that most bands could only dream about but they haven’t been cited as influential in many circles.

  • 291. Manfred Mann
    For argument’s sake we are going to combine the collective works of Manfred Mann’s various bands and include the Earth Band as one progressive link. Chances are; it is only going to be him who would get inducted anyway. If they did, they would be inducting an artist who transcended infectious British Invasion Pop to the fringes of Progressive Rock.…
