Why not? He fits the criteria. 25 years past since his 1st record and his concluded body of work contributed to the perpetuation of rock and roll. (NT)Those are the only real requirements set forth by the Hall of Fame.Wednesday, January 11, 09:50:22pm
I tend to agree. He has a couple hits, and didn't live long enough to have an influential body of work. Honoring a 17 year old? (NT) theChroniclerWednesday, January 11, 10:08:18pm
It's interesting that Buddy was moving away from the rockabilly sound that established him. Several of his later releases were more MOR. As for Bopper, I think had he lived he would have been a very successful songwriter. (NT)No nameThursday, January 12, 06:26:53am
In 2001 there were thousands of us who petitioned the Rock and Roll HOF with postcards for the purpose to honor Ritchie Valens being the first Latino to be recognized. (NT)Most of RV fans were born after he died, like meThursday, January 12, 01:24:49pm
