Badfinger was an extremely talented group that should be recognized. What really stood out about this band is that there live music was a carbon copy to there recordings which most bands could not do back in the days. They where a true rocking band. Pete Ham's talent alone has all the credentials to be inducted. He had one the best rock voices in there era. In addition, Ham was an exceptional song writer with guitar skills most would die for. Its dam crime this band is not recognized!!

This band's lyrics, melodies, and passion is transcendent al and angelic They put goofy bands like the cure or consider Iron Maiden junk bands but not Badfinger? The RNRHOF deserves the middle finger for not considering Badfinger!!!

Not so sure the entire group needs to be in, however a HOF without Ham / Evans being recognized as "Early Influences" is clearly not a HOF. There are tons of groups that were influenced by chords that no one else would dream of playing...he ll they should be in for writing Without You, it's only been covered by EVERYONE!!!

Sorry, just one more thing.I didn't know BADFINGER were not already in the HALL until recently.I am so shocked and dismayed I find myself here trying to be their advocate in this terrible injustice.Pl ease put an end to this and induct them now so we can move on and clear our minds to help others deserving of acceptance.

I mean no disrespect whatsoever but I have to say this the way I feel it.The fact that BADFINGER are not in the RR Hall of fame makes me believe Pee Wee Herman must be running the show over there in Cleveland.Wh y not ask Paul or Ringo if they belong.Who better to know than a musician from that era.I must repeat myself. It is sacrilege that they are not in.SACRILEGE .

I am completely dumbfounded that BADFINGER are not in the R+R HALL of FAME.Wheneve r I'm in the dumps I always go to this band for comfort and they save me from myself.That is part of their magic in songwriting. If only someone could have saved them from themselves.T here are very few artists better than these guys if any.They are MAGIC.It is sacrilege that they are not in already.
