What a sorry lot!

Too early for Radiohead. Too late for Link Wray. Can't deny the talents of Nina Simone but her influence and popularity lie largely outside the world of rock and roll. Depeche Mode have a solitary US Top 10 single and this qualifies them? The Zombies were good musicians, good songwriters and came up with three hit singles and one highly rated album but probably shouldn't be selected ahead of the Pretty Things, a band of greater stature I would have thought.

I like the J Geils Band and some of the Cars singles but not sure either band should be Hall of Famers.

Better to induct two or three worthy artists each year and there are only two or three on this latest list.
