Plenty of good possibilities out of those picks, but why people seem not to include Chicago(Transit Authority) is beyond me. Their first three albums alone warrant attention. They were able to create a jazz-rock-pop sound that been able to cross generational lines for the past 44 years. Go to a Chicago concert and you will hear only top ten hits for the two hour concert. Every year for the past decade I would look for the latest inductees and be disappointed,but not suprised by the picks when Chicago was not even mentioned. Just think of the Monkees because of the recent loss of Davy Jones, I think of Chicago's Terry Kath, considered one of the best rock guitar players in his day.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame is nothing but a sham anyway when you look at the inductees and those who've been snubbed. The New York Dolls are a no? What a JOKE! Miles Davis? As great as he was, just where does this JAZZ musician fit into the Rock and Roll part? And those who have ultimate say so? Peter Asher? Come ON...

It is supposed to be the Rock Hall of Fame right? Well the voters should spend some time listening to Classic Rock Radio, where they would hear songs from groups like Boston, Chicago, Doobies,

Someone should tell the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, what rock and roll is! Glad to see Rush and Heart in. Rock comes from blues ,therefore ONLY blues and rock.

Fans are passionate by nature, so each year's unveiling of the Hall of Fame's newest recruits assures an equal and opposite reaction from champions for other influential artists. Here's one critic's pantheon of rock stalwarts as yet ignored by the Hall monitors.
