Where does one start with Tampa Red, he's one of the pioneers of the chicago blues, his guitar work was vary influential and the bottleneck technique he played is still being used today.

As a songwriter, blues classics like Love with a Feeling, Don't You Lie to Me and the raunchy, It's Tight Like That.

And the people that were influenced by him include: Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.

I think all of this, makes him worthy of the RHOF.
