I never really payed much attention to the Rock and Hall of Fame until I saw the list that this was cloned from which prompted me to look at the Full Inductee List. Where in the heck is their nominating committee coming from? Tom Petty before Yes?

The nominating committee is probably comprised of critics, journalists, and those in the know in the music industry. I guess their argument is that someone like Tom Petty is more in the public eye (i.e., more record sales, videos, etc.) than Yes, hence his induction. I just cringe thinking of the day when Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and Poison get tapped for induction...ugh!

In the case of the J. Geils Band and Bob Seger... I think it's because most people don't know the depth of great music they put out BEFORE they hit the Big Time nationally. Seger with "Night Moves" and Geils with "Freeze Frame".

Seger was OK through "Stranger In Town" until Glenn Frey messed with his head and he wimped out trying to find another "Night Moves".

I think J. Geils just realized they'd sold out with "Freeze Frame" and broke up. "Centerfold" made me puke. (OK, the video wasn't bad).

The Stooges should definatly be in.

Apparently The Stooges are on the nominee list for this year.

Anyone think Guns N' Roses deserves to be in before any of these bands?
