I agree with Rush, Heart, Deep Purple, Procol Harum, Albert King, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Joan Jett. Not the others though. NWA does not deserve to be in the Rock hall of fame.

It's about time for DP and Rush to get nominated.

I voted for DP, Rush, and Heart.

Still waiting for ELP, Jethro Tull, and Yes to be nominated.

Also, if influence means anything, Kraftwerk are definitely deserving. Their influence on anything and everything involving a synth is staggering.

Donna Summer? I did not know there was a disco category for the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame. Thanks for the fan vote link, Deep Purple gets my vote!

If Deep Purple indeed gets inducted, it will be interesting to see what members are inducted and who shows up. I know that Richie Blackmore won't show since he has issues with the band. Eddie Trunk has been offered many times to interview Richie, but the condition is that they can't talk about Deep Purple or Rainbow, etc.

Oh boy, lets see if we can't fire this topic up a bit, with some opinions and debate, lol....


Albert King- love to see Albert get in. Highly influential on rock and blues guitar players already in the Hall. If 2 of the 3 Kings are in there, the 3rd one deserves to be as well, imo.


Deep Purple- I like DP, and dug the late Jon Lord on keyboards, not a big fan of Blackmore's, and I can give or take Ian Gillian.
I know these guys have a lot of support, but I'd like someone to tell me why they are considered so influential, I hear it in a band like Wolfmother, but not much else.
Obviously I'm missing something here, but I'm open to hearing why they should get in, on their merits, not because somebody else more slack got in.

Kraftwerk- Yep, not "rock and roll", but highly influential in electronic and dance music and the various sub groups in that area of music.

Public Enemy- Again, not R&R, and I'm more of a fan of the production team (The Bomb Squad) their cut and paste of various beats, samples, and quoting past hits, was groundbreaking in the rap game, and a blueprint for alot of what is still going on in that type of music.

Rush- absolutely. To me, a unique act that were highly influential due to their brew of highly intelligent lyrics, mixed with progressive hard rock. A lot of acts out there striving to reach what this band is.

I participated in the fan vote.

My picks were similar to several I see above -

Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Deep Purple
Heart
Albert King
Rush

I really wanted to pick Joan Jett - it's rare to read or hear an interview with a female rocker from the past 25-30 years who DOESN'T cite Joan as an influence, but given that I HAD to pick PBBB, DP and Rush, that left me with only two more spots, and I just couldn't put her before Albert or Heart. Ah well.

Deep Purple are very hard rocking, and every musician in that band is superb, but I find most of their material mediocre at best. Tunes like Smoke On The Water, Woman From Tokyo, and Space Trucking are almost Spinal Tap-esque. If it wasn't for the high level of musicianship they brought to the table, most of their songs are forgettable.

Maybe Rush will get in this year, and I have to say they are worthy. They rock just as hard and have just as high a level of musicianship as Deep Purple, but their songwriting is far superior, in my humble opinion.

Glad to see The Meters and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band on the list, two of my all-time favorites and two of the most influential bands in the history of music. I doubt either of them gets in, though. Not well known enough to the masses.

Fans get a voice in picking Rock Hall of Fame inductees

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2012/10/04/rock-hall-inductee-fan- vote/1613305/
1:50PM EST October 4. 2012 - Traditionally, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are determined by the hall's voting body of roughly 600 artists, historians and music industry professionals. But for the first time since its 1986 inaugural ceremony, fans will have a say in the outcome.

A small say.

Beginning today and through Dec. 5, fans are invited to cast votes for the 2013 class at rockhall.com, hbo.com, cnn.com and rollingstone.com. The top five artists selected by the public will comprise a single ballot to be tallied with membership picks. The five will be culled from this year's slate of 15 diverse artists, announced today.

PHOTOS:Who was nominated?

They include Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush, Chic, Heart, Donna Summer and Kraftwerk. Deep Purple, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Albert King, The Marvelettes, The Meters, N.W.A. and Procol Harum also made the cut. The fan vote was modeled after the Heisman Trophy selection process, in which results of a public survey count as one vote among hundreds of media ballots.

STORY:Heart, Public Enemy earn nominations

"There have been times that something has come down to one vote," says Joel Peresman, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. "One vote can carry pretty great weight. We wanted to give people a small voice in the process as opposed to just an opinion on a website. We'll see how it goes. If everyone's comfortable with it, it could be expanded.

"It will be interesting to see how it matches up with the votes (of members). It could be in sync or we could see a huge disconnect."

The 28th annual induction ceremony will take place April 18 in Los Angeles for the first time since Cream was inducted 1993. The event at the Nokia Theatre will be broadcast at a later date on HBO.

If you honestly doubt whether they are deserving then no wonder we disagree often. You are delusional.

45 year career
huge sales in albums, singles and tickets
many songs radio staples
incredible musicians who influenced countless players
still releasing material and still selling tickets headlining at arena level.

What more is needed? How can there even be doubt?

Are you trying to talk yourself into them being inducted or talk yourself out of it?

Spinal tap like? Perhaps but that is from being played so damn much. How many bands even create three of those type of songs? Don't forget - Hush, Highway Star, Child In Time,Burn and even more hits. Not many bands come even close to that many memorable songs. For myself, it is all the other music that draws me to them as with most bands the album cuts are the gems. I can understand that they might not be for everyone but suprised that anyone would question whether they were worthy. (Complete with Wayne's World bow)

Revisit some of those album tracks, Rob. Some absolute classics and you might even remember a few.

How on earth does Jethro Tull continue to be ignored? I just don't understand it. Did Ian Anderson piss in Jann Wenner's coffee or something?

Rush finally! Deep Purple finally!!

Maybe there is a statute of limitations on whatever crimes these two committed to JW and his cronies. Hopefully they both get in. As many said, both bands were so influential and are both still relevant today.
