with the new 'single' criteria (which i believe jann wenner has instituted to keep a whole lot of 60's and 70's bands out of the hall, but still keeping saving his face by acknowledging them) i think wenner is paving the way for the 80's and 90's bands to get in. he wants new audience, and he will not get it with warren zevon, carly simon, steppenwolf, and the MC5.
so he can add 'werewolves of london', 'you're so vain' 'born to be wild' and 'kick out the jams' without adding the whole band.
The way it's going, might as well get ready for the Hooters, Billy Ray Cyrus, Rick Astley, Mr. Mister, Tiffany, Tesla and ah-ha.
The Bangles in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Turn in your man card.
I just went to the RRHOF site and perused the inductees. It's a freaking joke Tull or the Moodys weren't inducted 10 years ago!
rjp is a close call to jwb. In fact I know of no poaters with letters as avatar names that are not douchebags. Every poat I've ever seen by jrp is idiotic (see above)! He's whining because some acts from a bygone era, not as ancient as his own, are being nominated in the Hall of Fame.
I demand the Moodys be retroactively awarded an induction along with the original class, and I intend to march on down to the Hall and protest if this does not happen. In the meantime, I will be boycotting ALL rock n roll and I suggest you do too.

You don’t see what sets Tull apart from dozens of other bands.? How about a string of great albums with Great original songs like no other band. Great lyrics. Excellent musical chops. And On stage, great presentation and exceptional stage presence.
Paul Revere and the Raiders . In the sixties they were right up there with the Beatles,Stones and The Monkees and most of their music still sounds good today.
Besides the Stray Cats and George Thorogood....who are some of the actual rock and roll snubs still waiting?

I respect you have an opinion but when use words like tripe for billy joel and cat stevens you lose my respect. so they may not be your cup of tea but you insulting their fans too. you are the one that brings up popularity and you say mc5 belongs and the man that continues to sell out madison square garden year after year doesnt?
The Doobies probably will get a nomination eventually... But I think they are way back in the que, behind Rundgren, Warren Zevon, and Nilsson. Think Carly Simon will be more likely nominated before Doobies. I anticipate Zevon on the ballot and inducted in 2019. Radiohead, and LL Cool j also inducted 2019. That leaves two openings for 80s acts, Janet Jackson, etc.
Al Kooper. He's been active in all of the eras of Rock and Roll as a performer, composer, producer, A & R man and wrote a great, funny book about the music biz.
Another artist who had lots of airplay, a handful of hits and still gets airplay today. Gerry Rafferty. Two hits with his second band Stealers Wheel and on his own scored eight top 40 hits. I doubt he will ever get in but he should be considered.
