About Patti LaBelle, Bill G wrote:
  I totally AGREE with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer , Michael "Mickey" McGill of The Mighty DELLS !!
Rhythm and Blues has been thrown under the bus in recent years...and replaced with RAP/HIP-HOP.
That is a mistake !! Without R&B, there would be NO RAP, NO HIP-HOP, NO ROCK & ROLL for
that matter !!Yet, Rap artists are being inducted, while classic R&B artists are being IGNORED.
Since the change in the Non Com members and the CEO, deliberate efforts have been made to keep R&B Artists out of the Hall. It's high time that this practice STOPPED !!
If I would add anything, I would say that ALL of the Original Blue Belles AKA LaBelle, be inducted:
Patti LaBelle, Sarah Dash, Nona Hendrix
AND Cindy Birdsong (who was snubbed from induction with the Supremes) . SHE was an original member just like the rest.
And, while we're at it, How about some overdue inductions for: The Chi-Lites, The Manhattans,The Whispers,The Dramatics,The Marvelettes, The Spinners, The Commodores,The Delfonics , The Stylistics,Rick James & The Stone City Band,Gene Chandler,Barry White, Lou Rawls, Dionne Warwick, Johnnie Taylor,Mary Wells, Jr. Walker & The All-Stars, Betty Everett, Nina Simone,The Pointer Sisters, and numerous other deserving R&B artists that have been bypassed as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame transitions to the "ROCK" Hall of Fame.
As I posted on this site some four years ago;



*****PATTI LaBELLE*****

"She is not Rock and Roll".

I'm actually getting sick of hearing this...and I've addressed it before, so let me reiterate...

"Rock and Roll" is DIFFERENT than "Rock".

"Rock and Roll" actually means and includes ALL derivative forms , progenitive forms and offshoots of what is actually originally called by that term.

That INCLUDES RHYTHM & BLUES. Hello ? Mc Fly ?? Am I making my point clear here ??

RHYTHM AND BLUES was one of the PROGENITORS of what we today call "Rock and Roll".

Webster's Dictionary defines "PROGENITIVE" as

"tending to or able to reproduce itself : reproductive".

For the uninitiated, that means simply that RHYTHM & BLUES was and is one of the FOUNDING FATHERS of Rock and Roll.

In fact, in no small part, Rock and Roll BEGAN when White music artists began covering Black Rhythm & Blues.

It was people like the late Alan Freed who opened the doors of exposure of R&B to the mass White audience . He did this in the early 1950's as a Dee -Jay in Cleveland...and that is why Cleveland is the home of the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME .

So, to deny induction into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME of Black R&B artists simply kills the idea and the point of the type and genre of music that spawned Rock and Roll in the FIRST place.

So, for all of you out there who still feel that "Rock and Roll" only includes white "Rock" bands...Please do yourselves and the rest of us a favor....

And please...PLEASE DO RESEARCH on the HISTORY OF ROCK AND ROLL !!

And do it before you begin making blanket judgements on who you think belongs in the R&R HOF...

...And who does not.

While, at one and the same time...

making yourselves look stupid in the process

should have been inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall
of Fame years ago. Who's better? Who has accomplished more? Rock n Roll is the baby of
'Rhythm & Blues' Let's get real - The Hall is trying to take the 'Roll' out of their title, and make it the 'Rock Hall of Fame'. Rhythm & Blues is The Template, and was created in AMERICA,
by your BLACK VOCAL GROUPS.

About Glen Campbell, Shrek wrote:
  He should be in the HOF via the Musical Excellence category along with the other members of The Wrecking Crew who have not yet gone in.

I see no need to induct most country music acts, unless they had direct impacts and influence on Rock N Roll (that's why Johnny Cash was inducted); or in cases where the lines are pretty blurred - most genres are as much about marketing as it is about the musical intentions of the artists after all. Country as a genre precedes Rock N Roll and has its own very well established HOF.

But much as I have little interest in the easy listening pop-tinged country ballads that Campbell became famous for - he absolutely belongs in the Rock HOF for his studio work because of all the hugely successful Pop and Rock recordings he played guitar on.

  No, she absolutely does NOT deserve to be inducted. & no, Aaliyah didn't open any doors for anybody. Stop with the delusion. & she wasn't even a great actress so why the hype now? Gloria, Madonna, Whitney & Janet opened all the doors. Aaliyah is one of the most overrated artists ever, imo. People give her career too much credit just because she died. She wasn't that good. Period.

About Aaliyah, Essence wrote:
  She has no major impact on pop culture in general. Aaliyah is a perfect example of a mediocre artist who's death thrust her into the stratosphere. She was not even the best singer on her own tracks. She was a whisperer, her voice was soft, weak & bland. She was not a good performer. She had no stage presence, imo. She had no special sound. If she did, she got it from others. Y'all need to give more credit to those who helped her. Like R Kelly, Missy, Timbaland, etc. She's lucky because she had a good team/good producers/etc. There are artists who deserved it way more. If I just HAD to compare Aaliyah's whisper singing ass to anybody it would be Ciara. A lot of singers/artists were better. it was just the Timbo beats, that's it. Many people can outsing her and out dance her. I wish people would stop making Aaliyah out to be this extreme talent when she was not. She was alright but she was far from great. She was average at best. She's overrated. Point. Blank. Period.

About The Moody Blues, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Michael Roach,

If you have a chance to read some of my previous posts, you will realize that I am a huge supporter of the induction of The Moody Blues into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. It was almost 37 years ago, when I had discovered the music of The Moody Blues by myself, while tuning my college roommate's radio to different channels. The Moody Blues are third on my list of favorite bands, slightly below Yes and Rush. I will not deny that The Moody Blues are probably the biggest snub on the List of the artists who most deserve induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. With that being said, since 2010 several major "prog" artists have finally been inducted: Genesis (2010), Rush (2013), Peter Gabriel (2014), Chicago (2016), Deep Purple (2016), Electric Light Orchestra (2017) and finally Yes (2017). If The Moody Blues do happen to receive a nomination later this year, then I can not possibly think of a single possible reason why they will not be inducted during next year's Rock Hall induction ceremony.

  RIP Glen Campbell; it's a damn shame you have not already been inducted into the Rock Hall yet. One of the few crossover successes in both the pop/rock and country genres, he won Grammys in both country and pop categories at the 1967 ceremony. He wrote, collaborated and produced so many classics. "Witchita Lineman" is, IMO, one of the ten pop songs ever recorded. He would be an excellent candidate for the Sidemen or Musical Excellence categories.

About Phish, Shrek wrote:
  Phish completed their recent 13 show residency at MSG in NYC last night.

13 shows in 17 days. 26 sets of music. 237 different songs played. No repeats - though there were two song "reprises" in the final encore on night 13.

What other band on the planet could pull that off? And still left a good number of fan favorite songs on the shelf they could have used to fill out several more shows without a repeat.

Perhaps that will catch the attention of the nominating committee and Phish will get their first nomination?
