What about Raitt's guitar work? I don't know, kind of grasping at straws, she's an awards darling who they love because she overcame her addictions. Never have really seen what made her special, myself.Dave Clark isn't a selection I agreed with, but it's a better one than the Hollies, I think. British acts who flourished in the mid-60's are a bit over-honored.

If you understand the induction of The Velvet Undeground, then The Stooges shouldn't raise an eyebrow.Miles Davis should have been inducted as an Early Influence. Coltrane as well.My Personal 10:Dave Clark FiveDellsNeil DiamondThe HolliesLittle Anthony & The ImperialsJohn MellencampMoonglowsBonnie RaittPercy SledgeZZ TopGave Darlene Love a free-pass since her work with Phil Spector certainly was innovative and influential, even if her discography as a whole doesn't add up to much. The acts I listed above are ones that are oft-forgotten and barely influential nowadays, if ever (Dave Clark Five, Moonglows, Dells) or simply didn't do anything all that creative (Mellencamp, Raitt, ZZ Top). Sledge is undeniably the worst inductee in The Hall of Fame, a choice that clearly is a step below the rest of the head-scratchers.
