  • Alice Cooper
  • Beastie Boys
  • Bon Jovi
  • Chic
  • Neil Diamond
  • Donovan
  • Dr. John
  • J. Geils Band
  • LL Cool J
  • Darlene Love
  • Laura Nyro
  • Donna Summer
  • Joe Tex
  • Tom Waits
  • Chuck Willis

Every year I say this and I feel compelled to repeat it.  This year’s list of nominees include people that have no business being in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame before rock acts like T. Rex and The Faces.  Rod Stewart is in solo, but the band that made him great, a massively influential group, waits and waits and waits.  T. Rex, admittedly, lacked some substance, but they were a very influential rock band, the kings of the Glam movement.  Bands like Oasis made fortunes pinching some of Bolan’s work.

I’m not a Rush fan personally, but it’s ludicrous to think that Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Chic (Chic???), Bon Jovi and Dr. John could make their way into the RRHOF before Rush.
