Makes sense. Now that the Internet & streaming music sites have pretty much turned the music industry upside down, there should be a People's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 

 

I remember Joe Walsh from the James Gang, pre-Eagles!

@millineutron - Here's Joe Walsh . . . someone recently asked him about it and this was his answer:

 

 

As with most things this days, there is money involved. IMO, it is no longer the R&R HoF because it is no longer honoring R&R. More correctly, it is a Music "we like" Hall of Fame.

 

Some of those ignored have been asked, and most say that they really don't give a hoot!! They were in it for pleasing the fans, not a bunch of corporatists. For similar reasons, many of them went sour with their management and record labels. Or like the Joe Walsh example, some artists were not that well known, but they were very well known to the musicians in the bands. But still, there are ardent and adoring Heart rock fans (like me) who want to see their bands/artists honored.

Don't really get how how this works. Seems like at this rate they might get caught up by the turn of the next century.

The Zombies

Def Leppard

John Prine

Todd Rundgren

Devo (not really a fan of Devo, but I'd vote for them because they were really different at the time)

 

IMHO, the R&R HoF need to get their 'acts' together!! They have snubbed and completely ignored some of the best classic rock bands and influential artists that have been around since the 60's and 70's. Who gets nominated seems to be the opinion of a very few people who seem to have forgotten what rock really is; or was. Acts that are long overdue include (but far from limited to) - - -

 

Steppenwolf  (the group who gave us "heavy metal thunder" !!)

The Guess Who

Three Dog Night

Iron Maiden

Blind Faith / Derek & the Dominoes

Thin Lizzy

Tom Jones (what??? no Tom Jones????)

The Doobie Brothers

Blood Sweat & Tears

Carole King

Pat Benetar

Peter Paul & Mary

Neil Sedeka

Tommy James & the Shondells

Barry White

Manfred Mann

Vanilla Fudge

Styx

 

 . . . and the list could go on and on! Shame on the hall of fame!!
