About the 2017 Nomination Predictions, Enigmaticus wrote:
Ben,

Thank you. It's good to hear from you also.

Yes, I had listed Doobie Brothers as a possible nominee. I had watched the "Behind The Music" episode featuring their various members on YouTube. Former member, Tiran Porter is one of the most articulate and intelligent musicians in any group. It was a very interesting show. Other than a compilation, I have not yet purchased any of their studio albums.

On the other hand, I am definitely a huge supporter of those first 6 acts on my nomination list. I have many of their albums in my collection, with the possible exception of Carly Simon. I only have 5 of Carly's recordings and one compilation.

About the 2017 Nomination Predictions, Ben wrote:
I just want to clarify. J Geils Band and the Zombies can certainly be considered Classic Rock as well. I should have said less of the populist acts. What is great about the Moody Blues is they are populist and Prog at the same time.

The Doobie Brothers as well as Bad Company and some other popular ones I've seen on here are good picks but I think the Hall will have less of the Populist thing this year. Its the way Paul Butterfield was on a few ballots and then were inducted. They were a pet project of Paul Schaefer and some others.

Ahh but the Moody Blues I always predict. You have to have a popular legendary act on the ballot somewhere. The Moody Blues fit in perfectly.

About Electric Light Orchestra, Enigmaticus wrote:
I am also a huge advocate for E.L.O.'s induction.

As I had stated previously, I have been an aficionado of
E.L.O.'s music since 1979, the same year that I had first been
introduced to the music of Rush. In the case of Rush, it was while attending the Heart Seminar at the UA College of Medicine in Tucson, Az in February, 1979 however.

My introduction to Electric Light Orchestra was via the song, 'Don't Bring Me Down' on the tv show "Solid Gold." My parents went to the store that day, whereas I had committed the crime of turning on the television to watch "Solid Gold." I am mentioning the Electric Light Orchestra, because the "Xanadu"
soundtrack was one of my first cassette purchases, almost 36 years ago.

As far as I am concerned, Electric Light Orchestra is the major "art rock" band of the 1970's; Duran Duran is the major "art rock" band of the 1980's and beyond.

I, for one, am Interested in hearing, "Alone In The Universe." I was extremely impressed with the Bluray version of "Jeff Lynne's Electric Light Orchestra Live In Hyde Park." As far as E.L.O.'s studio albums are concerned, my previous purchase was "Time." Unfortunately, I have not heard "Zoom" nor any albums since, with the possible exceptions of various compilations.

In my honest opinion, Electric Light Orchestra and especially Jeff Lynne, deserves immediate induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, along with The Moody Blues, Duran Duran, Yes, Sade and Carly Simon. Let's get them all inducted in 2017!
