Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music and Todd Rundgren have my vote. It is about time they BOTH made it into the RocknRoll Hall of Fame. Todd Rundgren has a HUGE following in Columbus, Ohio. I own everything both of these artist have recorded.

My picks are Kraftwerk, Devo, Stevie Nicks, The Zombies and Todd Rundgren. None of the others I would consider because they either haven't been around as long as others who should have been in a long time ago (or aren't on the list), or they shouldn't be on the list, example: LL COOL J? What does he have to do with Rock & Roll?

I heartily agree. A lasting impression in our hearts and a continued presence on the airwaves for all those mentioned should result in nominations and eventual seats at the table.

The initial inductees were great choices, do doubt about it, and many great choices followed. But somewhere along the way, they forgot some people who made rock, rock. Steppenwolf was one of those bands (and arguably many others, esp prog rock bands of the late 60's-early 70's).

 

As for the fans voting, I suspect that they are mostly millennials and younger, that wouldn't know John Kay from John Adams. To get fans to vote requires a following on social media that most of the older rock stars do not have. Steppenwolf have been eligible since 1992, but they weren't even nominated until 2017. According to Kay, they received around 110,000 fan votes. Kay was very gracious and thanked HoF for the nomination, and thanked his fans for voting, but went on to say that he's there for one reason and that's the Wolf Pack. 

 

And there's also the case for Deep Purple who were only inducted in 2016. By that time, Jon Lord, a founding and significant member of the band, had passed on some years earlier. Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore were both outspoken critics, especially Blackmore. Blackmore didn't bother to attend, and it wasn't because of Gillan as media liked to suggest. 

 

I would only suggest that if this were a peer-based HoF, the make up would be quite different. 


All good points!
