RNR Hall Of Fame Nominees

Rich From PA

It took years to wear Jan down enough to allow KISS in, so maybe he's softening his hardline a bit. Not surprising, especially after all of the controversy surrounding the Dave Clark 5 induction. Word was that he really liked the Raspberries set at the Rock Hall induction dinner last year, so who knows?

On the other hand, the 'berries don't have a pitbull like Gene Simmons calling Jan at home and at the office every day... smirk

Its political poo-poo Rob the voting process for the fame has become very frustrating for such remarkable talents such as the raspberries and Chicago also and many others

I had forgotten about Chicago.What do those guys have to do after 40 successful years in the business and still performing.They have like 3 greatest hits albums now.I really amazes me.

I've been dying to post on this topic since Wednesday, but the site wasn't allowing me to log in (Wierd grumpy but THANK YOU Bernie for helping me get back in!)

I happened to visiting former Hollie Terry Sylvester at a show in Massachusetts on Wednesday, and I had the honor of being the first to tell him of the nomination.

He was VERY excited to hear the news, and he announced it to the crowd that night - there was a truly rousing reception when he shared the info.

What The Hollies has going for them is that they are the only nominee with a strong presence in the 60's (as well as Terry's era from 1969-74). The others are mainly 70's/80's artists.

My picks are :

The Hollies



KISS and

(begrudingly...under political pressure) LL Cool J

The only thing I can see that even connects Laura Nyro to rock

is that Three Dog Night did covers of her songs. But, with that in mind......Hoyt Axton would be a better choice....or perhaps 3 Dog themselves...

And who are the Chantels? Sounds like one of those "15 minutes of fame" groups.
