Aside from being old or dead, what are the criteria?

I suppose it's okay to nominate dead people, but two dead artists and four bands where the lead singer and other members are dead, makes the list of 16 a bit of a depressing read.

 

I mean, who is going to show up on behalf of T.Rex or Motorhead or Thin Lizzy?

Holograms?  Tribute bands?

For the MC5, I guess if you have Brother Wayne Kramer, you have a show.

 

T. Rex's drummer is still alive.  He's the only one left.

 

There are surviving lesser known members of the other bands.

to think that the dave mathews band might go in before t.rex. 


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

Speaking of bands that deserve recognition, The Replacements just came out with a 4 CD set that has an earlier stripped down version of "Don't Tell a Soul," various outakes, demos, live concert material and half a dozen drunk takes with Tom Waits.  https://variety.com/...rticle-comments

If ever there were a band that belongs in a hall, it's this group.
