|I know that this is an old thread, but I had to comment. Robert Palmer was AMAZING, and he was one of the kings of Blue-Eyed-Soul. He was so original, a gentleman, and an amazing performer. Bernie Taupin added the lyrics to Melissa Mancherter's version, but Johnny and Mary by Robert Palmer is 100% Robert Palmer, with no help from Taupin.|

|Thank you, Gassman, for hosting our Rock Hall Projected.|
Major props to jtrichey for successfully starting a push for Bill Withers.
I'm in the unique position of having voted for all three artists involved in the tiebreaker, and I'm delighted that they all made it this far.
3- Mariah Carey
2- De La Soul
1- Dave Mathews Band

Agreed. I'm happy with this class. I was really pleased to see Bauhaus do as well as they did after I killed their momentum last year in giving Siouxsie & the Banshees a serious push. Bauhaus, Bad Brains and Neu! will be my top priorities next year.
And I agree on the Fugazi/Minor Threat issue, but certainly won't complain about Fugazi getting in.
Well done, all.
De La Soul 3 (Way overdue)
Mariah Carey 2 (I do understand the argument for her)
Dave Matthews Band 1 (Good showing this round. I'd expect DMB to be a strong favorite next year.)
