About Stevie Ray Vaughan, Karl Singleton wrote:
  WTF??!! How did you find me, Andrew??? For your information I like Stevie Ray BETTER than Katy
Perry. The thing that I like about her is that she can wrtie her. That's the ONLY thing I really like about her music. If it wasn't for those at times inspirational lyrics, then I wouldn't give a what about her.

Anyway here are some reasons why Stevie Ray is better:

1. He played instruments
2. He was a descent songwritter (not as good as Katy though)
3. He appealed to many audiences
4. He had passion for music
5. He could play jazz a little bit

So, could you PLEASE stop trolling on me. Katy is not my favorite. Here are the acts I like better:

1. The Eagles
2. Led Zeppelin
3. The Allman Brothers
4. ZZ Top
5. The Beatles
6. Stevie Ray Vaughan
7. Red Hot Chili Peppers
8. Stevie Wonder
9. Queen
10. Elvis
11. Creedence Clearwater Revival
12. The Rolling Stones
13. Van Halen
14. Jimi Hendrix
15. Chuck Berry
16. Kelly Clarkson
17. Aerosmith
18. Lynyrd Skynyrd
19. The Beach Boys
20. The Who
21. Santana
22. Adele
23. Coldplay
24. Green Day
25. Nirvana
26. Michael Jackson

So as you see, Katy is not my favorite act. Although I do enjoy her, I respect that you don't like her. But still, Stevie Ray Vaughan is better. Can you agree with me on THAT??

  I'm no fan of John Mayer either, but he IS an extremely talented guitarist. The point is, if you think Vaughan didn't influence a ton of rock guitarists, and even the fact that you need to differentiate that much between rock and roll and blues (when the Hall very much does not), then you're showing your ignorance on the subject matter.

About Stevie Ray Vaughan, Andrew wrote:
  Karl, when are you going to stop attacking me for that comment I posted on the Katy Perry page? My point was that Katy doesn't belong in the Hall because she hasn't done anything innovative or new as a performer. Madonna started the whole whore pop star look, so what Katy's doing is just copying what has already been done. Plus, by the time Katy is eligible, no one will remember who she is, because there will be some other little slut trampin' it up on stage.

About Stevie Ray Vaughan, Karl Singleton wrote:
  Phillip, you and Andrew both. I WANT Stevie Ray Vaughan to be inducted. But he didn't do much as far as influencing. In fact he influenced John Mayer. Who in my opinion is AWFUL. His only good song is "Waiting For The World To Change". Also he influenced Kenny Wayne Shepard. Who is HIGHLY forgetable. I find Shepard BORING. SRV's style was unique. But I heard someone say he played a lot like Albert King. Which is why I might have said "he was kind of a Jimi Hendrix/Albert King ripoff". So he did influence. But didn't influence anyone who is MEMORABLE. And that's why I think he might not get in.

  PopeCharming- good list of snubs from the top 100 lists (Turn Turn Turn and I Wanna Hold Your Hand stick out)

My biggest head scratcher was no solo Van Morrison. Gloria is a great song but no "Brown Eyed Girl" or "Moondance"

Also it my not quite be rock but I was incredibly surprised that "Unforgettable didn't make the pre-60 list. I'm glad Nat King Cole got an entry in the top 100 though (even if it wasn't the one I expected).

I will say however that my involvement in the project only goes back to the 80's preliminary list as that is when I discovered the site, so I gripe even though I wasn't around to change the outcome

Darren- Walk this way is a big snub. Out of curiousity how close was it (and Brown Eyed Girl) to making their respective decade lists?

About Crowded House, Joe wrote:
  Actually, they had two hits in America: "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Something So Strong". And yes, they were--and are--huge in Australia. Several worthy acts became huge in Australia--John Farnham comes to mind--but to my knowledge, not many (AC/DC, the Bee Gees, and who else?) continued to make it big here.

In terms of hip-hop, A Tribe Called Question and possibly De La Soul will both be on my ballot next year. They should both be in by now.

  Donnie, it wouldn't flabbergast me if he was nominated. Still would consider him a longshot to be nominated at this time, though.

About the 2014 Inductees, Donnie wrote:
  So, beings we don't have a 2015 Nominees page up yet, I figured this section was the best one to bring this up.

Every year, the Hall of Fame always nominates a left-field pick that no one sees coming at all. It's usually an artist from an "outside genre" like jazz, country, blues, avant garde, etc.

Does anyone think it's possible that with all of the attention he's been getting in the media, and particular with Rolling Stone, that "Weird Al" Yankovic could see a nomination on the ballot for the 2015 class?

I'm sure many people's first instinct will be to say "yeah right," "no way," or just start laughing. But he has been getting a lot of publicity and attention lately for his latest album which in many ways has been the biggest success of his career, some 35 years into his career. What other artist has accomplished that? He's officially hit the record books this week with the elite artists from the 80's as he's now become the only artists with Michael Jackson and Madonna to have a top 40 single ("Word Crimes" in his case) in the 80's, 90's, 00's, 10's.

Those are all great accomplishments, but the big question will be will the HOF look at things like that and thus consider him? The Hall has become much more populist in the last few years so commercial success, while the Hall won't publicly admit it, is becoming more and more important.

But again, he has been getting a lot of attention from Rolling Stone, not only in the last week, but in the last few years actually.

I think the thing with Al is that it'd be really difficult to find someone on the Nominating Committee that would push for him. The older 60's era people on the Nominating Committee obviously wouldn't push for Al, so it'd have to be one of the younger members. But I just don't see Tom Morello, Questlove, or other younger members being big pushers for him.

However, I think if he did end up on the ballot, I think he would get a lot more votes from present HOF members than many would think. I could see artists like Madonna, Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, David Byrne, the members of Nirvana, and pretty much all of the members of the 80's and 90's bands in the HOF voting for him, either due to history together, or due to being fans of Al. If Michael Jackson was still alive, I have no doubt he would've voted for him.

So does anyone think there's any remote chance that "Weird Al" Yankovic could be nominee on the ballot that no one sees coming? Or is it a longshot? Or is they're a better chance of John Lennon and George Harrison coming back from the dead and playing some Beatles reunion shows with Paul and Ringo?

  That took a long time to scroll past. Way more annoying than compelling. Roy, I know that you're capable of speech and debate, I've seen hints of it on the other site. Knock it off with the lists. Express your passion. Tell me to f off and explain why I'm wrong about Yankovic in your own words. You are capable of that.

MY PRIVATE MESSAGE TO ROBERT LAMM ON THE OFFICIAL CHICAGO FORUM. WAITING FOR A RESPONSE:

When Chicago is finally nominated for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, will you, Walt, James and Lee make an effort to make sure the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame listens to you when it comes to which additional members of Chicago to induct along with the 7 original members?

I can tell you right now that the Rock Hall will not include guitarists Donnie Dacus, Chris Pinnick or DaWayne Bailey as inductees because they were all short-lived, non-original members of Chicago. Keith Howland and Lou Pardini will not be inducted because they were very, very late arrivals to the band.

Along with the 7 original members of Chicago, these are the additional members of Chicago who can and should be inducted: Laudir De Oliveira, Bill Champlin, Jason Scheff, and Tris Imboden.

Laudir De Oliveira was Chicago's 8th member. He was with the band for 7 years and he performed on 10 Chicago albums, including all 5 of Chicago's number 1 albums.

Bill Champlin was with Chicago for 28 years and 9 studio albums. He played a big part in the Chicago 80s comeback. His lead voice is heard on the radio on the Chicago top 10 hits, Hard Habit To Break, Will You Still Love Me, I Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love, You're Not Alone, and the number 1 hit, Look Away.

Jason Scheff will mark his 30th year with Chicago next year. It would look very odd if the guy who replaced Peter Cetera in Chicago is not included as an inductee into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Jason Scheff has been on 8 Chicago studio albums and his voice is still heard on the radio on Chicago's top 10 hits, Will You Still Love Me and What Kind Of Man Would I Be.

If Timothy B. Schmit of Poco and Joe Walsh of The James Gang were inducted with the Eagles, and Sammy Hagar of Montrose was inducted with Van Halen, then Bill Champlin of The Sons of Champlin and Jason Scheff should be inducted with Chicago. They shouldn't be treated any differently.

Tris Imboden will mark his 25th year as Chicago's drummer next year. He should be inducted as well.

MAKE IT HAPPEN. THANK YOU. PLEASE WRITE BACK AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK AND WHAT YOU WILL DO.

About The Doobie Brothers, Jim W wrote:
  Why should the Doobie Brothers be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? Because, to me, they represent the perfect amalgamation of rock, pop, R&B, and even country music. They did not suddenly "break on the scene" like other major bands, but gradually and steadily built an impressive body of recorded work (from 1972's "Listen to the Music" to 1989's "The Doctor"), as well as a large, devoted, worldwide fan base over the years. The instrumentation of their mid-70s recordings anticipates the emergence of the Americana movement (when they are not serving up a crunchy guitar-based wall of sound), while their late '70s songs crystalize the "California sound" of that time, and often cross into R&B, such that some of those recordings are sampled within the hip-hop genre. The Doobies boast a vivid concert experience (consult YouTube if you doubt this), and have influenced hundreds of rising club and bar bands. They have earned Grammys, have been mainstays on AM/FM/Satellite radio, and have achieved several #1 albums and singles on the Billboard charts. They have made an historic mark on rock and roll, and can be considered the quintessential American rock band. To me, there is little doubt they belong in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
