    I agree, I saw them a few times in the early days when Bloodshot came out and they killed it! And who can forget the Live double album Blow Your Face Out! If that doesn't get you jamming and in a full on party mode you must be dead...

    well, if Madonna is in, I guess anyone can get in. Still, they don't strike me as a seminal band

    Peter Frampton should be nominated - amazing guitarist. Frampton Comes Alive! was voted "Album Of The Year" in the 1976 RollingStone readers poll. It stayed on the chart for 97 weeks. released in 1976. It is one of the best-selling live albums, and considered by many to be one of the finest live rock recordings of all time. The rhythm guitarist and drummer of that album have already passed away. Peter has a great story about his black beauty LP lost and found after 32 years.

    Rush was already inducted in 2012.

    The Cars. No one sounded like them. The closest the critics would compare them with back in the day was Roxy Music. Elliott Easton, a versatile guitar player. Does Depressed Mood even have a guitar in their music or is it all synth?

    Of course, Dire Straits. They were extremely important to me in the 1980's.

    Moody Blues have had a long career and Justin Heyward and crew still play on.

    Judas Priest is further down on my list behind Dio, Sabbath, UFO, & Maiden, but they should be in.

    I pick the one's that I'm surprised aren't already in there:

    • Bon Jovi - Well they should probably be in but I have to reject them on the principal that they are Bon Jovi, and minus extra points because Ritchie Samosa.
    • Dire Straits
    • Judas Priest
    • MC5
    • Moody Blues
    • Radiohead
    • Link Wray

    They i.e. The Zombies, not Seminal? Well, besides being one of the main bands that comprised the initial wave of the "British Invasion" they also added a kind a 'jazzy' quality to rock music. Name a rock band that did that before them?

    I'll add my yearly rant: How in the world could Johnny Winter never be nominated let alone voted in?
    I'm with y'all that proclaim this isn't a RnR Hall of Fame. Somebody needs to start a real one.

    Link Wray - for his seminal work. See this:

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.bill...daughter-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-interview

    MC 5 - Really, why not already?
    The Cars - huge sellers and very good, underrated musicians and performers and THEY were the seminal/personifying New Wave band - AND they sold records!
    Judas Priest - just duh!
    Moody Blues - very successful and seminal commercial “art rock” band (no slams on including them in that “genre” please)
    The Meters - so much good stuff and a long career. Defining funk band for many.

    IMO most of the rest just elicit a “What?” from many of us.

    J Geils a very close runner up. Next year!

    Totally agree on Johnny. WAY ahead of most of these folks. Many of us grew up on his stuff and he influenced many of our styles - certainly mine! Still not over his passing...
