According to this Time magazine article, these are the top ten bands not yet in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame:
Now, firstly, the notion of a Rock N Roll Hall of Fame is a little bit silly-the whole idea of rock n roll should be, in a sense, opposed to the notion of things like halls of fame. And, similar to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the selection criteria are not super clear. But, here's the list, and my thoughts on each.
Not a fan, but important? Surely. Belongs in the Hall.
Not enough hits, in my opinion. Significant, maybe, but not historic.
I loved Def Leppard, but one great album and a pretty good one should not be enough.
Nope. Lame in the extreme. Sorry, Jimmy Pardo. Nothing personal, dude.
Kind of the same as Def Leppard-I enjoyed them, but one great album and a pretty good one shouldn't be enough.
Not a huge fan until the "Invisible Touch" era, but their body of work should get them in.
7.The Doobie Brothers
No. No lasting impression on music that I am aware of.
8.The Moody Blues
Absolutely. Like Bert Blyleven, should have been in several years ago. Hugely influential, with great music from first album to last.
