Should've been inducted with Dion. Disappointing they weren't retroactively inducted with the Miracles and whatnot.

"Should've been inducted with Dion. Disappointing they weren't retroactively inducted with the Miracles and what not."

So true. The BELMONTS should have gone in with Dion. He could have gotten a second induction for his solo career...but the GROUP should have gone in FIRST.

That was the Rock Hall's FIRST mistake.

The SECOND mistake was not inducting them with the Great Retroactive Group Induction of 2012. When THE MIRACLES, MIDNIGHTERS, FAMOUS FLAMES, CRICKETS,COMETS and BLUE CAPS got in, the BELMONTS should have gotten in...again . The timeline, and the opportunity , would have been PERFECT ,because they, like the other 6 groups , were all active in the Fifties and early Sixties. The "Great Hall" blew it...TWICE.

The THIRD MISTAKE will be if they induct them NOW...because, unless they induct them as MAIN PERFORMERS, which, they indeed WERE, The Hall will induct them in the "MUSICAL EXCELLENCE" category...FOREVER BRANDING THEM AS "SIDEMEN" to Dion...which of course, is GROSSLY UNFAIR.

The BELMONTS were NOT "SIDEMEN" for DION. They were ALL part of the SAME GROUP...just like the six other classic groups inducted in 2012.Just as Smokey said when he inducted them back then:

"These are NOT "Backing Groups" .

"These ARE the Groups"


Not inducting them AT as to cover The Rock Hall's own SCREW-UP.

So...what NOW ??
