The biggest joke is the snub of kiss by the rrhof and this list! say what you want, but they are one of the biggest influences sighted by so many artist, both musically and visually. They have more gold albums than any other american act....yes that includes Elvis. They have shattered attendance and merchandising records. No too mention, in terms of longevity combined with viability...they are pretty much unmatched.

I was a charter member of the RRHOF until last year. I wrote them a letter which told why I was leaving and how disappointing it was to have them overlook so many iconic bands that were the heart and soul of Rock and Roll. When Chaka Chan was nominated, and the Beastie Boys were inducted, that pretty much spelled the end of my membership. Eddie Trunk was right when he called the whole thing a 'travesty'......

What an ongoing is a 'list' of performers/writers/producers that somebody likes.

Patty Smith is IN...OK but...Pat Benetar is NOT!!!!

Flavor Flav is IN...but....CHICAGO is NOT!!!!

Madonna is IN...OK...but Carol King is NOT!!!!


Everyone has personal favorites...and anybody can(should) think or feel differently about different musical styles genres...but..that asided...the contributions, influence, longevity, and impact  is what is SUPPOSED to be celebrated or recognized.


Jerry and the Pacemakers......Humble Pie....Grand Funk Railroad..... Boston...Journey...Styx...

The Doobie Brothers....Yes....

MY list could go on......

It's a shame that the Hall still refuses to recognize and honor Pat Boone, Paul Anka, and Connie Francis- artists that were there at the birth of rock 'n roll and helped shape the music for future generations.
