Cool.


But if they're a no brainer, they better start constructing some new wings to that building.



Or you don't know a lot about music?


Well I certainly don't have a top 10 progressive rock album list.

Well it's already watered down so they probably do. Just like the Orioles HOF is watered down. If they're a no brainer, then they are letting in too many artists for my taste.

But I have some good news for you Pedro, if Yes is a no brainer, then even The Hold Steady has a chance.

It was more fun back when they first started this thing... there were so many clearly deserving candidates, it was just a matter of who got in before somebody else... but for years, they all deserved it... now, not so much....

You know all the arguments about how Cooperstown should have different tiers?  Well, that's true here as well...  sure, you can make a perfectly sound case for both of them getting in... at the same time, putting Steve Miller in the same category with the truly greats isn't right ether...  in effect, we need one category for Truly Great and another category for Pretty Damn Good....

Nobody is saying Steve Miller is on the same level as The Stones.

Everyone relax.

Obviously, but the words criminal and insane being used to describe Steve Miller and Yes not yet being in the HOF is let's see how I should put this, how about insane.

The fact that it took forever for KISS to get in shows what a joke the HOF is.  Whether or not you thought their music was great, their influence was off the charts.

 

Off this list, The Cars is the most obvious choice. Original sound and very successful.  Their music still sounds fresh.  Always will.

Interesting thought, I personally feel like the hall LOST credibility by putting KISS in to be honest. I would think it supposed to be about the music, as opposed to the "show". The joke always has been KISS had all the gear, clothes, hats, lunch boxes....etc, the only thing they didn't have.....talent. 

 

But yes, they were absolutely influential, can't argue that.

 

Great call on the Cars, they deserve to be in.

Since You're Gone. Not close for me. 

 

Absolutely LOVE the way Ric sings that song. The big payoff on that one is at the end, when he's singing what he's going through "since you're gone", and as it fades he sings "the moonlight ain't so great"..

 

Yes, I realize I've overanalyzed this.

Is their influence off the charts? Are we talking about influencing people to dress up and put on their type of show, or musically influential?
