Mariah Carey - 3
DMB - 2
De La Soul - 1

MC was the only one I voted for, but it was practically a coin flip between De La Soul and Dave Matthews. I went with DMB for second place out of personal bias - De La Soul's music just isn't memorable to me, no matter how much I've tried to get into it.

True, I voted for Beefheart, and Captain Beefheart's individual songs aren't memorable, but his music itself is an unforgettable cacophony.

I'll come back next year and help push for The Killers. I didn't notice Tears For Fears wasn't in, so they will get a vote also.

  Hey Enig, Good to hear from ya. I see your point about Green Day and Nine Inch Nails. I actually don't know much about Nine Inch Nails. Only that they were very popular 90s Industrial Band. Both bands were Successful and Critically acclaimed. I just don't think there's enough support for 2 90s artists at the same time yet. This is due to the age of most of those on The Voting Committee and the Judges. They tend to still be people who grew up in the 60's and early 70s. As I mentioned 20 years ago there was a big fuss over 70s starting. Allman Brothers, Led Zep, Neil Young and Pink Floyd went in around that time. Things being equal the same would happen with the 90s Now. However, the Age of the Committee and Judges hasn't changed that much. So I'll stick with my predictions. Those include Lou Reed, The Spinners and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He is actually 80s but is a Blues Rock Icon. This cuts down on the 90s right now. However since you spoke of 2016. I do expect 2 90s to be inducted at the same time in 2016! I'm figuring that Nine Inch Nails will go in Next year along with perhaps Soundgarden. Just not this year. Hey those 2 could go in at the same time as the Moody Blues. You never know. I'll stay away from comments on 2016. Not ready for all that yet really.

   There's a year to the next nominations list. Have to start early for Duran Duran October 2015 Nominee RRHOF. I think you could argue Duran Duran is good or greater than each of the 15 nominees this year. As Enigmaticus has brilliantly written over the last 2 years, I really don't know what Duran Duran is missing. They have so many outstanding qualities...Innovation and Influence, Gold & Platinum Records, Top 10 hits, awards, creative longevity, outstanding concert/live performances. They had successful spin off groups Arcadia & Power Stations who had hits. Including the Band Aid collaboration & Live Aid concert. Duran Duran were included in many important music shows. They have fulfilled the RRHOF criteria presented. KING

  My tiebreaker vote:

De La Soul - 3
Dave Matthews Band - 2
Mariah Carey - 1

Regarding next year's newly eligibles, I think that maybe Arctic Monkeys and Janelle Monae might have a shot someday, but they'll need to continue releasing great albums and singles to build enough of a track record. The Killers have a better discography than either (and they're more successful), and they weren't even close to getting voted in as rookies this year.

For returning artists, obviously the tiebreaker losers will be front-runners and while votes this year won't translate directly to similiar votes next year, I would think that these co-relations may apply for these inducted Performers:

Bill Withers - Hard to say where his votes could be distributed, as he fits into the singer-songwriter category and the R&B category. There weren't any artists that fell just short this year from either genre. Mariah Carey (if she loses the tiebreaker) could benefit from an R&B perspective, but I don't know that her fan base overlaps well with Withers'.

Lou Reed - Singer-Songwriter, Alternative / Indie, Classic Rock - There are tons of alt / indie artists and several leading contenders under Classic Rock. Reed's music tends to be pretty dark, so Bauhaus may pull a vote or two and that may be all that they need to get in.

The Guess Who - Our classic rock pick this year. The top contenders for Guess Who votes would probably be Three Dog Night, Supertramp, and maybe Paul Revere and the Raiders. There's also the possibility that a different classic rock band (such as Foreigner or Boston) could emerge as a front-runner.

Fugazi - Punk, 80's / 90's alternative - Fugazi's votes could go to Bad Brains, Bauhaus or an emerging front-runner from the list of 80's alt rock / punk bands that haven't been inducted yet (Billy Idol, Social Distortion, Jesus and Mary Chain, Dinosaur Jr., Tears For Fears, etc.).

LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem and The Chemical Brothers have pulled votes from one another the last three years. Now that LCD Soundsystem has been voted in, Chemical Brothers seem to be the surest lock next year outside of the tiebreaker losers.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Neu! seems like the most logical benificiary here.

*De La Soul - If they win the tiebreaker, it opens up votes for Hip Hop / Rap artists next year. Those votes could go to A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg or another consensus selection.

*Mariah Carey - If she wins the tiebreaker, it opens up votes for other R&B and Pop artists, such as Mary J. Blige or Justin Timberlake. There weren't any comparable artists that got more than 2 votes this year, so it's hard to say how this would shake out.

*Dave Matthews Band - They can't win this tiebreaker, but if they did, their votes could go to 90's artists, alternative artists, singer/songwriters or pop artists. Their fan base is rather all over the place.

These are the bands that got more than two votes this year:

Bauhaus - 5
Neu! - 5
The Chemical Brothers - 5

Queens Of The Stone Age - 4
Three Dog Night - 4

Paul Revere And The Raiders - 3
Supertramp - 3
The Dells - 3
The Shangri-Las - 3

Logically, they should be considered top contenders next year, since there aren't any likely first ballot inductees.

Welcome to our projects. It can be very overwhelming at times. I joined in about 2 years ago and it took me a while to get in the groove.

As for next year's newly eligible, there are certainly some bands that will have an argument, especially down the road. I only meant that none will likely be beating the door down on their first ballot.

Some to keep an eye on:

Arctic Monkeys
Bloc Party
Carrie Underwood
Deadmau5
Gary Clark Jr.
Janelle Monáe
Kaiser Chiefs
MGMT
Panic At The Disco
Silversun Pickups

About the 2015 Nominees, Zuzu wrote:
  You're right about the garage acts from the 60's. A lot of that has to do w/how the people running the show feel the music should be portrayed. They want the late 60's to move beyond three chords & novelty numbers, and into the realm of "high art". Hendrix, Cream, the Airplane, etc., can't be the next step in musical evolution if you've The Blues Magoos or ? & the Mysterians sharing the same space. Never mind that they're good - they're not the new definition of "art".

If you're following the actual route the music took, as "music", there's a greater argument for groups like Steppenwolf, Iron Butterfly, Blue Cheer, Vanilla Fudge - perhaps even more than some of the folk artists as well.

Thanks for replying.

Regarding the Smashing Pumpkins I think you might of misinterpreted the point I was trying to make. I think he was intentionally blowing off Chicago because he wanted to be seen as the alpha dog in town and not the beta following in the footsteps of the alpha.

For the garage bands, topping the list would be Tommy James and the Shondels and the Buckinghams. These two do have substance. You should see who comes up in Forgotten Hits survey on garage bands.

http://www.forgottenhits.com/your_top_50_all-time_favorite_garage_bands

The Exceptions' members although known only locally did go on to bigger and better things. Kal David formed Illinois Speed Press, Marty Grebb joined the Buckinghams and Peter Cetera was the last founding member of Chicago. James Vincent, Jim Nyeholt and Billy Herman joined by Bobby Jones went on to for Aorta. Billy Herman later joined New Colony 6. The Dells hooked them up with a record company. Their Rock and Roll Mass is actually early Christian Rock. they were also back up musicians along with members of the Paul Butterfield Blues band for a Dick Campbell album.

The American Breed morphed into Rufus. With Vehicle and LA Goodbye, Ides of March was morphing into a rock band. Plus member Jim Peterik went on to form Survivor in addition to producing. Let's also not forget Canadians, The Guess Who.

For folk what about Joan Baez and Melanie. Don't forget the 70's Old Town Triad of John Prine, Steve Goodman and Bonnie Koloc. Then there are singer/songwriters, Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver and Don McLean.

for country: Patsy Cline, Dottie West, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. Oh for the hell of it let's add David Allan Coe since he could probably get even Punkers and Rappers to take a second look at Country? Do they bleep things out on cable? Notice that everybody I mentioned are crossovers.

The people you mentioned are fairly minor 70's players. California and New York was not where it was at in the 70's. For that you need to go to the heartland. That's where things were happening.

Altho Double Trouble was per se a backing band, they are all 1st-rate musicians and were with Stevie thru-out his recording career. If SRV is not elected in (this year) it would surprise me. It would actually piss me off to be truthful.
I am not passionate about any of the other nominees. As re Chic: they have more than 2 hits, but several of the songs sound the same, with Nile Rogers distinctive guitar chucking. Bernie Edwards was considered a great bassist. They also composed hits for Diana Ross and Sister Sledge, among others.

Sting is already in with The Police. NWA...no. Chic...sorry but wern't they a two hit wonder? I respect Nile Rodgers but come on they don't belong in. I hope Stevie Ray Vaughn gets in its nice to see him finally getting noticed by the hall. This is quite possibly the worst nominees they've had. They're all just clueless Rolling Stone yuppies that'd probably vote for Clapton's hand, which would be the 4th for Clapton.

_______________________________________________

This is tough, as frankly the RRHOF is at least 40 artists or so behind since cutting down the number of inductees around 2004 or so.

Kraftwerk (Electronic)
Johnny Burnette & the Rock n Roll Trio (50s)
T. Rex (Glam)
Judas Priest (Metal)
Motorhead (Metal)
The Spinners (70s Philly Soul)
Janet Jackson (80s/90s pop)
Sade (80s/90s R & B, jazz rock)
Joy Division/New Order (punk, post-punk)
The Smiths (80s alternative, Britpop)
Chicago (Classic Rock/Soft Ballad Kings)
The Go-Go's (80s rock/female influence)
Eric B. & Rakim (Hip Hop)
King Crimson (Prog)

I feel artists that debuted or had their most succes in the 80s have been greatly under-represented in the past 10 years or so that they have been eligible.

I don't want to overly prematurely discuss who is getting in to FRL's Artist Hall this year, but at least two of the top contenders would be added to this list, so it's nice to see we didn't wait in vain. Bill Withers, a surefire lock, already has 3 songs, however. Lou Reed, with 2 songs, will be eligible; The Guess Who, with 4, will not. LCD Soundsystem, with 3, will not. Fugazi, with 2, will. These five seem pretty safe, all things considered. The remaining two spots are pretty close, so we'll see what happens.
__________________________________________________

Well Paul K your were right on the money with those inductees. Lou Reed and Fugazi will both be eligible for the November genre vote as they both only have two songs in.

To update Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band were also inducted and is also eligible for the genre vote with only two songs in the Song Project.

Out of the three artists involved in the tie breaker, both Dave Matthews Band and De La Soul would be eligible for the genre voe if elected with two and one song in respectively while Mariah Carey (who has five songs) would not.

Tough choice. DMB was an easy top choice as it was the only one I cast a vote for but Mariah Carey and De La Soul were both potential vote switches for me (especially since my mini push for Dionne Warwick crashed and burned). I'll be happy with whoever wins the tie breaker as the three artists represent three genres not included in this year's class. (90's Rock/Jam Band, Hip-Hop, and solo pop vocalist). Regardless the losers will likely end up on my shortlist next year.

This was an interesting challenge and these were 14 that I came up with to fill some gaps:

The Moody Blues (Prog and British Invasion)
The Spinners (70's R&B/Soul)
Deep Purple (Hard Rock)
The Replacements (80's Alternative)
The Zombies (British Invasion)
Yes (Prog)
Chic (R&B/Disco)
Peter, Paul & Mary (Folk)
The Doobie Brothers (Classic Rock)
Chicago (Classic Rock/Fan Favorite)
N.W.A. (Rap)
Kraftwerk (Electronic)
Judas Priest (Metal)
War (Funk)

Would there still be some gaps to fill? Absolutely, but it's a start and it would take care of some fan favorites and musical pioneers (Not to mention some multiple nominees from clogging the current ballot).

  Ben,

The reason why I think that Green Day and Nine Inch Nails will be inducted in 2015 is due to the fact that both were successful, critically acclaimed and immensely popular. For some reason unbeknownst to me, critics have been on the so-called "punk bandwagon" for several decades. Green Day represents the epitome of punk for many of them.

  Hey Roy I will respond to Roy on his Inductee predictions. I do think it's doubtful that 2 90s artists will be inducted this year. It's not because it should be that way. It's because fo the Conservative nature of the people that Run the Hall. I think for now it will be one 90s choice despite the 90s Rock blitz coming. It is true that if you go back 20 years to when the 70s were just coming into focus at the upcoming 1995 ceremony the Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin and Neil Young all went in at the same. However those are the pride and Joy of the Hall. Basically the same people run the Hall. 90s are not their pride. They would still lean towards that era a little. I do not speak as that big a 90s fan myself. I am stating a fact. I go with Green Day as the 90s choice just as Nirvana was last year. Totally agree with Lou Reed and Stevie Ray. Both Well deserved. I really think Sting will not go in. He is super popular as a Name but his Body of Work is kind of Weak as far as success and reputation as compared to others on the ballot. I can see Bill Withers as a mellow R&B choice but I go with Spinners instead. They've been nominated before. As much as I don't like Rap I say NWA. The influence thing and they skipped Rap last year. I made my list. Anyone can feel free to give their opinion.
