Yes, the manager.And, I was wondering where they would rank. I believe the Crickets are still playing together.
Committee Chairman wrote:Knuckles....Do you mean the manager, Peter Grant?As for the Crickets, it is possible that we could include them as we have made a strong case for the Miracles (as Smokey Robinson was inducted without them)In terms of ranking, is your question about how we rank the 500, or how would we rank the non performers?
That list I posted was simply of the ones we felt should be in from the inception of the Cleveland hall through this upcoming election. We did induct Freddie King, in 2019 of our mock elections. Note that the Non-Performer, Sidemen & Influences categories had a limit of two names per year.

Clapton drew heavily from him ("Hideaway" with Mayall's Bluesbreakers and "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" as "Derek" in the Derek and the Dominos in particular), and F. King's speedy, brassy style was picked up by guitarists from Steve Cropper to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
