How in hell has Herbie Hancock been eligible for Rock N Roll Hall of Fame for the past 25+ years? He does not seem that old!

Herbie's influence on Funk is so massive he should be in just for his album THRUST!! I think most jazz heads don't pay attention to the RockHalls neglecting of Jazz artist.

He is most definately an Icon in the world of Jazz/Rock and Fusion.

His first solo record "Takin' Off" came out in 1962, so I'm not sure why he's supposed to be eligible since 1981, which is a moot point anyway, since the HoF didn't exist until 1986. So be that as it may, he's already eligible, but was never considered. If Miles Davis is in, then Hancock should definitely get a shot.

I don't know for sure!!! But I've got this feeling that Herbie is going to get inducted in the RRHOF sometime in the near future.
