  • Artists That Have Been Overlooked for the Rock 'n' Roll HOF?

    What say you?
    Every year, when the new nominees are announced, there is lots of grumbling from fans about omissions. Here's a hundred to start with.

    I'd give the Moody Blues the nod.

      Of course there is whining, everyones personal sacred cow gets gored. That top 100 list has a lot of also-rans. I would consider King Crimson solely for In The Court of the Crimson King (the red album), likewise Emerson Lake and Palmer for their first let alone subsequent works and Steppenwolf for their psychedelic hard rock.

      Forget the trudging beat of Bad Company, saw them in concert with Black Oak Arkansas, Ricky Medlocks Blackfoot and Alvin Lee. Bad Company was blown away and at one point nearly booed off the stage.

      Maybe Lonnie Mack and Johnny Rivers for their influence.

      But in comparison to the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, the Doors, Hendrix, Dylan etc. the "Top 100" is comparatively weak.

        I guess there's a few that I think are deserving. But I think one has to think about what are the criteria that separate a group from being very good and deserving of being in the HOF. I think innovation, number of releases, sales and longevity have to be three criteria. Not unlike some of the arguments that go on with the BBHOF either.

        So there are three candidates off the top of my head that belong and are kinda mind blowing that they aren't in the Hall of Fame:

        Yes
        Jethro Tull
        Carole King

        Then the strong candidates:

        Joan Baez
        ELP
        Procol Harum
        Kraftwerk (almost belong in top category--and I don't like them but appreciate what they accomplished)

        Then the borderline:

        Billy Preston
        Stevie Winwood (solo)
        Johnny Winter
        Judy Collins
        3 Dog Night

            I missed Dire Straits. How are they not in the HOF. An oasis in a decade of bad sound in the '80s.

          The HoF really seems to dislike prog rock. King Crimson, Yes, and ELP all definitely belong. Moody Blues and Jethro Tull probably do too.

          Harry Nilsson, Carole King, Procol Harum, Los Lobos and Dick Dale all definitely belong.

          There should be a special category for people like Rodney Bingenheimer, too.

            Just like in anything Hall of Fame related its all up to some committee

            Each year, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation's nominating committee selects the group of artists nominated in the performer category.
            "" Ballots are then sent to more than 600 historians, members of the music industry and artists—including every living Rock Hall inductee—and the five performers receiving the most votes become that year's induction class. Beginning in 2012, fans were given the chance to vote for the nominees they'd like to see inducted into the Rock Hall. The top five vote-getters in the public poll form one ballot, which is weighted the same as the rest of the submitted ballots.

            Eligibility;

            Artists—a group encompassing performers, composers and/or musicians—become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Besides demonstrating unquestionable musical excellence and talent, inductees will have had a significant impact on the development, evolution and preservation of rock & roll."

                    We used to go to the induction ceremonies when they were held at the Waldorf. The best were before they started filming and broadcasting, which slowed down the pace considerably. One of the early ones- we are eating our appetizer course, and some guy comes blazing out from behind the curtains on stage ripping into some hard rock blues licks, wearing a sleeveless shirt. Jeff Beck. Over the years, got to see quite a few celebrated performers play in a fairly intimate environment- largely made up of the bands and the usual "big star" celebrity entertainers, some real power broker types and tons of suits and industry people who got to see and hear the fruits of their labors. It was great fun. We went largely because my longtime law partner was a big Macher in the industry. Liz and I took his place at the opening ceremonies for the venue in Cleveland due to personal circumstances that prevented him from attending. Downtown Cleveland isn't all that big, and everybody was packed into a couple of hotels. What's crazy is, with all the talent that performed- from Bob Dylan, to Chuck Berry, to James Brown, to Aretha, and everybody in between, the most riveting performance was by Iggy Pop.

                      i heard its $10k a seat to attend the R&R HOF award ceremony and that's for the inductees family and quests! I think Robin Zander of Cheap trick complained about it this year.
