About The Runaways, Pam wrote:
  Of course the Runaways should go into the RNRHOF just like so many mentioned here. They played their own instruments, all TEENAGE Grrrlzzz NOT WOMEN, teenage girls that's a big difference. They should go under I think Musical Excellence. I listen still to them today, and they really were the BEST band around. Maybe Joan Jett & The Blackhearts induction will have an affect for the Runaways to get in

About Humble Pie, Dee Fitzsimons wrote:
  Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton should both be inducted as both have stood the test of time. So inducting Humble Pie into the RHOF would serve both sets of fans as well as those who were fortunate to have heard Humble Pie from their very beginning and those who have found them more recently.

About Peter Frampton, Dee Fitzsimons wrote:
  Peter Frampton is an excellent live act who draws his audience in to the performance. His songs have stood the test of time and his fan base is loyal. Have been with him since we were both 16.

About Duran Duran, KING wrote:
   Hoping 2016 Duran Duran is inducted. They have earned RRHOF induction. I remember seeing Duran Duran in an outdoor venue late 90's. They rocked and Simon's voice was strong. Draw a line. Name 10 bands more deserving of RRHOF than Duran Duran. KING

About Green Day, DarinRG wrote:
  I'm not a Green Day fan, but I disagree. They had an undeniable first ballot level impact. I think that at very least the Buzzcocks, Black Flag, New York Dolls, Television, MC5 and the Damned should have preceded them, but that's a different debate. They deserved it whether I'm moved by their music or not.

  I'm not going to deny that Green Day has talent. But they should not have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. They aren't punk music they are more pop than anything and they haven't really contributed much to music.

About Roy Buchanan, John James wrote:
  Roy Buchanan has been long overlooked for inclusion in the Hall of Fame. Perhaps because he didn't follow the usual path and avoided stardom, he is known as the ''best unknown guitarist in the world'' . His career spanned the late 1950s as a teenager until his early death 30 years later. He was undoubtedly the world's pre-eminent Telecaster exponent with an unmistakeable sound. Roy mentored Robbie Robertson and was the inspiration for countless guitarists. Martin Scorsese asked Robbie's musical advice for the movie ''The Departed''. He selected Roy's ''Sweet Dreams'' - the movie ends and the credits roll. I have listened to his ''Sweet Dreams'' thousands of times, and it never fails to bring out the emotions. I have asked my guitarist son to ''play it like Roy'' at my funeral.

About Roy Buchanan, Bsarrie Moore wrote:
  It is about time for the Rock n Roll Hall of fame to induct Roy Buchanan.
What are they waiting for?
He has been eligible since the first inductions, his first studio recording was with Dale Hawkins back in 1957 on a song called "My Babe".
Way before there was a Link Wray, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend or Bob Dylan.

Roy Buchanan, in my opinion, is in the top three guitar players of all time.
The other two are both included in the list above.

About Moby Grape, Hap wrote:
  I can't see how Moby Grape's first album is not included in every rock critics top 100 albums of all time. They definitely need to be considered for the R&R Hall of Fame. Best band in Frisco in 1966-67.

About the 2015 Inductees, Philip wrote:
  Maybe, but at the same time, acts like Green Day and RHCP are gonna vote the acts that they like and often are most like them. It's gonna keep getting more and more rockist. Although the upshot from that will be it'll get a lot more indie.

About the 2015 Inductees, Donnie wrote:
  I agree with Darin on this one. 5 years ago or so, I would say a lot of the blame laid on the Nominating Committee for their bias against so many genres. But in the last five years, the format of the Nominating Committee has improved drastically. Every year the ballot of nominees is very diverse with representation of just about every major genre.

The problem like Darin says is that the Voting Committee is still filled with older HOF inductees who only care about the music and artists of their era rather than future eras, and in some cases previous eras.

Put it this way, does anyone think Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Chuck Berry put in votes for LL Cool J and the Cure? I highly doubt it. And you know Greg Allman and the guys from the Allman Brothers aren't gonna give N.W.A. the time of day.

The more younger, more recent bands that get inducted, the more the classes are gonna diversify. It's just gonna take time unfortunately.

  I agree. Should be a 10 year minimum before an artist is even added. Just my opinion.

  The NomCon isn't the problem. The problem is a geriatric and ignorant VoteCom who know nothing outside of their peers and can't be bothered to learn. Deserving acts are constantly waiting because the geezers can't be botherered to acknowledge foebears who weren't their boys.

About the 2015 Inductees, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Each time that the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominating Committee makes their choices for induction, the public are usually perplexed. They often wonder why their favorite artists have to wait for such a long time, in order to receive their well deserved accolades. Now however, the fan vote is changing that outcome a bit. In 2013, the Rock Hall did an outstanding job of inducting both musical and non-performer icons. I am hoping that 2016 will be another such year. Therefore, here is my partial list of 2016 nominees:

1. Duran Duran

2. Moody Blues

3. Carly Simon

4. Sade

5. Doobie Brothers

6. Yes

7. Electric Light Orchestra

8. Deep Purple

9. Foreigner
