  Ok. I was looking at the Fan Ballot. I was voting in the actual Rock Hall. The ones I voted for are different than what I predicted. I want to keep this a little short. I'll list them if someone asks. I saw that Stevie Ray and Nine Inch Nails are both high on the Poll. Near the top. NIN is #1 right now. Now I am not changing my predictions. I did notice that NWA is at the bottom of the poll. They have the least votes. Now I believe the Fan poll counts for a small percentage of the whole Vote. I still think NWA will go in because the actual Hall committee will want to make up for no Rap last year. However you never know. If Rap is skipped again. Well then NIN and Stevie RAy Vaughan can clearly go in at the same time. I am not a fan at all of Nine Inch Nails. They do seem to have a big Fan base though. It's like Nick said Rush and Kiss received the Most Votes and got inducted. Kiss were especially hated by critics. Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone and a couple others swore to no end that Kiss would never get in while he was alive. Yet Kiss did get in last year. They were #1 on the Fan poll. I am not changing my predictions but I do see the point. If NWA is inducted. That could shut out Stevie Ray a hero of mine if NIN is #1. This is because I feel Chic, Lou Reed and probably Spinners are such sure ones. A mellow R&B choice anyway. I may change my predictions when we're closer to the announcement if NIN is still #1. Good point Nick

  Greg F. - Be sure to nominate that genre during the genre nomination period.


Nominations for next month open at midnight. Every voter can nominate one album from 2013 and one album from 2013 or prior to 2013. Nominations will end at 11:55 PM Central on the 3rd.

The following albums are automatically nominated as the result of losing the tiebreaker in last month's Album Project Vote or Genre Project Votes:

Bob Dylan - Desire (1976)
Frank Zappa - Apostrophe (') (1974)
Yes - Relayer (1974)

Each voter will be allowed to vote for 6 albums. There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 11:55 PM Central on the 8th. The top 5 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.

This month's album genre is Live Albums, as it lost the genre selection tiebreaker in September. Nominations will begin after the Album Project and Song Project voting has concluded. In the meantime, please discuss if the genre should be split into multiple votes (and if so, how) and which albums are eligible and which albums aren't.


The following genres are automatically nominated as a result of losing the previous genre selection vote (or were nominated last month, when there wasn't a genre vote), but receiving at least three nominations:

90s British Rock/Pop
Art Rock/Progressive Rock
Blues
Christmas/Holiday Music
Cult Classics
Hip Hop/Rap
Metal
Novelty / Parody
Punk



Each voter will be allowed to nominate one additional genre this month if they choose to do so. Nominations will end at 11:55 PM Central on the 3rd.


80's New Wave / Pop is ineligible for nomination until December, as it was the selected genre from May.

Psychedelic/ Experimental/ Avant-Garde is ineligible for nomination until January, as it was the selected genre from June.

Electronic is ineligible for nomination until February, as it was the selected genre from July.

TV and Movie Soundtrack Albums is ineligible for nomination until March, as it was the selected genre from August.

Jazz is ineligible for nomination until March, as it was the selected genre from September.

Live Albums is ineligible for nomination until March, as it was the selected genre from October.

70's Singer-Songwriters is now once again eligible for nomination, after spending six months ineligible.


Every voter will be able to vote for 5 nominated album genres. Any genre that receives less than 3 votes in the genre selection will not be automatically nominated for the genre vote next month (any genre that receives 3 votes, but doesn't with the selection vote would be automatically nominated).

There will be three days of voting, ending at 11:55 on the 6th, followed by a discussion period to nail down the specifics of the votes (which albums qualify for the genre, whether or not there will be an early influence vote, whether or not the genre will be split along chronological or other lines, etc.). The discussion period will continue until the conclusion of the Album Project voting (which may or may not require a tiebreaker).

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated album, but only if they feel that the album is being nominated inapproriately. Any album that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Album Project vote.

Any nominee that receives three protests will be be disqualified from the Voter's Choice. The review period will end at 11:55 PM Central on the 3rd.

The following songs are automatically nominated as a result of losing a tiebreaker in last month's Song Project Vote or as a result of losing tiebreakers in last month's Genre Votes:

Connie Francis - Stupid Cupid (1958)
Wilbert Harrison - Kansas City (1959)


Each voter will be allowed to vote for 10 songs. The only restriction is that voters can't vote for their own Voter's Choice nominee. There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 11:55 PM Central on the 8th. The top 10 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.


During the Song Project voting (excluding any tiebreakers), we'll have a vote to determine if we'll have one genre vote this month or two. It's a Yes / No vote. In the event of a tie at the end of the vote, the last vote cast will be disqualified to break the tie. If we decide to have two genre votes, we'll also need to decide what year we want to split the groups in. Voting to determine the number of genre votes this month will end at 11:55 PM Central on the 8th.


This month's selected genre is Revisited/Projected Acts With 2 Songs or Less. There will be three days of nominations that will begin after the conclusion of the Song and Album Project voting (and tiebreakers).

About the 2015 Nominees, Nick wrote:
  Since the inclusion of the fan ballot on the rock hall website, I believe whoever has the most votes is guaranteed induction that year. Rush and Kiss received the most votes and got inducted and I believe their high marks on the fan ballot plays a major factor here. Remember Rush and Kiss were never critics' darlings (especially Kiss) but receiving the most votes on the fan ballot pushed them toward an induction. Plus, both fans have devoted fan bases that will (and did) anything in their power to receive at the top of the fan ballot in their induction years. At the end of the day, the Rock Hall is an institution with the intention of making profits. It would look ready bad on the Rock Hall to not induct the person who receives the most votes on a given year. This year will be no different: Stevie Ray Vaughn or Nine Inch Nails (or both, let's hope) will get inducted.

Nine Inch Nails or Stevie Ray Vaughn will have the most votes on the fan ballot this year (by a wide margin). They are neck-to-neck for first place. By December, I think Nine Inch Nails will still be number one on the fan ballot because they have a devoted fan base that will vote for them tirelessly. I think Stevie Ray Vaughn will probably be an inductee for 2015; Nine Inch Nails is not as much of a sure-fire thing with Green Day also being a first-ballot nominee this year. However, if Nine Inch Nails receives the most votes, the Rock Hall cannot deny the impact of the fan ballot. If Nine Inch Nails gets the most votes and doesn't get inducted, that would be a middle finger to the fans voting for them.

As far as who will be inducted from Yes is concerned, that is certainly anybody's guess. However, I am inclined to believe that these individuals are most likely:

Jon Anderson
Chris Squire
Steve Howe
Bill Bruford
Rick Wakeman

  And Roy, to be accurate, you need to add "vocals" to Trevor Rabin, as he sang lead vocals on several songs on each of the Yes records during the 80's. Also, you need to bave "backing vocals" with Squire, as his harmony singing is present and prominant throughout the Yes canon.

  Roy, I wouldn't mind seeing all those people go in, but I have strong doubts that either Peter Banks or Patrick Moraz. Moraz only played on one studio album, 'Relayer,' and that record is generally not put in their all time essentials, although I personally think 'Relayer' is awesome. Banks was gone and Steve Howe in by the time they started to record their really important records.

As I stated above, I could see the Hall making what I would consider to be a mistake and also leave out Trevor Rabin. I'm sure that would make Howe happy, though.

  Lance, I disagree that Yes will not get in. They will. But you do pose an interesting question as to which members should/would be inducted.

No brainers:

Jon Anderson
Chris Squire
Steve Howe
Rick Wakeman
Tony Kaye
Bill Bruford
Alan White

Strong argument:

Trevor Rabin


I feel that Rabin absolutely should go in, I personally love his era and he was the driving force for a decade. But there are many who do not like the Rabin era.

I would put in those eight listed above.

I usually look at it this way. Would the band be getting in to the Hall of Fame if the work done while Person X was in the band had never happened? If the answer is "no," then that person deserves induction.

With Yes, it is 'The Yes Album' through the late 70's somewhere, and the early to mid-80's. While there are fans of other periods, those periods don't really matter that much.

  Peter Cetera, blue-eyed soul? I dunno. The term applies well to Daryl Hall. It is valid ico Annie Lennox, Eric Burdon, Tom Jones other notables. Cetera?
As to Raymond's comment Chicago v. Beatles: Mercifully (imo) The Beatles split up, went their separate ways while they were still going strong. Chicago should have disbanded long ago. Going long does not equate to going strong! It usually only equates to "oldies" group.
Also, I myself respect the people who run the Rock Hall. If you don't respect the institution, why do you even care about yor artist getting in or not? Rolling Stone and MTV don't completely control everything. Jann Wenner has/had influence as well he should, but nobody annointed him dictator. I would encourage disgruntled fans to stop whining about Wenner, he puts his pants on same as you! Of course, after he puts his pants on, he has an empire that he runs! lol. SNL joke.

Getting snubbed is nothing new. Steve Howe regularly get's left off most Top Guitarist lists while he is arguably one of the top 5 of all-time when it comes to versatility and flat out talent.

Another issue for Yes is the 18 member roll call. Who would go?
Jon Davison
Jon Anderson
Trevor Horn
Benoit David
Oliver Wakeman
Patrick Moraz
Tony Kay
Geoff Downes
Igor Korochev
Rick Wakeman
Pete Banks
Billy Sherwood

About the 2015 Nominees, Ben wrote:
  Hey Enig, I was looking over your predictions for the 2015 Inductees. If I got this right. You're predicting Green Day and Nine Inch Nails along with people like Lou Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan. You also list Sting solo and a couple others I didn't predict. Now you see I think the Hall will Induct 6 again. Also I think a Rap artist will be chosen. I am venturing to say that Green Day and Nine Inch Nails could be inducted at the same time when I think about it. I think NIN will be prevented this year though due to NWA. I don't like Rap but since they skipped Rap last year they'll have one this year. If you consider that Lou Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan are pretty sure ones out of the 6 and that I predict Chic after 9 noms. There is also a mellow old R&B choice with Spinners I predict. Then there's no room for NIN. Now if the Hall goes back to 7 choices then I do think Nine Inch Nails can go in. The Hall likes being somewhat older with choices. Hence the Lou and Stevie Ray

  I love how Roy has entire bands listed who are voting for a certain artist. Didn't the Grateful Dead get, like, eleven or twelve members inducted? So according to Roy, for instance, when he lists "The Grateful Dead" as voting for Lou Reed, he is saying that all 11 or 12 will each cast a ballot with Lou Reed on it? Without exception? See Roy, this is way too general. I think next you need to break it down by every single individual in every single band ever inducted, and then show us what each of their ballots will look like. Then you need to break down each ballot of every music critic, record exec, etc. who also get ballots. Get to work. I want to see this by sunrise.
