350. Peter, Paul & Mary

With beautiful harmonies and as one of the first political Folk groups of memory, there can be little doubt that the threesome established their place in musical history. The question is does the most successful Folk group of the 60’s have enough Rock and Roll credibility to get into the Hall? Unlike Dylan or even Joan Baez, Peter, Paul & Mary may have had some songs about anti-establishment ideas, but they look like your aunt and uncles. They have yet to receive a nomination, and the Hall may remain reluctant a group that seems so mellow.

Peter Paul & Mary are Folk titans, and they've definitely left their mark in music, for sure (and rest in peace, Mary Travers, you are greatly missed). But to put them in the *Rock N Roll* Hall Of Fame may seem very inappropriat e. I mean, how Rock N Roll can you be with just two acoustic guitars and three mellow voices? Not very. Still, Peter Paul & Mary have my respect, as well as the respect of their legions of fans and peers. But that may have to be enough.
