*** I want to see The Big Bopper inducted ***

I hope I'm not coming across as confrontational (as that is *not* my intention), but under what category would you put him?

As a performer, two hits, both of which are more or less just novelty songs-So I'd give him a no vote on that.

As a songwriter-He had a couple of songs placed with artists other than himself, but that amount of songs is so microscopic I'd be very hard pressed to call him an influential songwriter.

Some argue that he deserves induction because he supposedly coined that term "music video"-If that isn't grasping at straws to say he was influential in some way, I don't know what is. I don't know if he actually coined the term or not, but regardless, giving a name to something that existed before he named it certainly does *not* merit induction-Not to me anyway...
