VH-1's been covering it for the last several years, so I would say yes.

No, the hall just wants to keep credibility. No good artists will list those three as inspirations.

The Hall lost its credibility years ago.

And you'd be surprised how many great artists today have been inspired by those three groups.

Name me one must own album from any of those artists........you know, one that appears on any of the multitude of "Greatest Albums Of All Time" lists.......or how about a handful of tracks from any of them that really made an impact. If the Hall is going to go back and reward older artists, along with the upcoming onslaught of integral newer acts, they should be looking more towards Brian Eno, Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen, rather than at record sales.

Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

This was their magnum opus and is one of the best prog rock albums of all time. The fact that they were able to have major commercial success later in their career cannot be overlooked either, despite the fact that the quality of music wasn't as high as their early years.


Yes - Fragile

You can't tell me that this record isn't considered one of the all-time classics in rock, with one legendary song (Roundabout) and numerous other FM radio staples (Long Distance Runaround, Heart Of The Sunrise).


ELO - Out Of The Blue

This double album was issued at the peak of their career, and it is their best. Major hits included Turn To Stone, Sweet Talkin' Woman, and Mr. Blue Sky, which you hear everywhere nowadays from commercials to movies.

Considering that the Hall has already inducted artists like Blondie and Aerosmith, I don't see why these three wouldn't be there.

Um, because Aerosmith has had like forty hit singles........Toys In The Attic, their biggest studio record, actually makes it onto those best of lists and sold eight million copies.

Blondie also had a ton of hits in their brief run and you can hear their sound echoed in countless acts today.

Sure, everything that was ever as popular as Genesis will have some impact, but the kids today are wise enough to steer clear. I listen to a ton of great new albums every year and I just don't hear a prog influence in any of them. At most, maybe a song or two. I hear Blondie everywhere, including various, well, entertaining rip-offs.

Van Halen's induction in the R & R Hall of Fame

Firstly are there are Van Halen fans here?
and what do you all think of the induction???

As for the reunion pppft what a farce Dave coudn't carry this band anymore - he wasn't even a great frontman to begin with....
Sammy still rules....and he's a complete gentleman

Dave should just go back to being a fuckin paramedic.....and leave the job of the rockstar to sammy or some other great vocalist.....

David sings on 2 tunes.

Sammy on 1.

And Mike Anthony plays his crappy bass lines.

Let's be real, they're here becaue of Dave.

No Dave in VH, no awards ceremony.

It doesn't really matter though. REM will be playing with Bill Berry. That's the headline.

In Sammy's favor, 5150 is one of their best. As strong as I and II, and I love the glossy sheen spread over all of the tracks.

If you are going by hit singles, you can see that all three of those bands have had quite a few in their own right, especially compared to Blondie.

You'd be surprised how many Top 40 singles a band like ELO had, for example.

But anyway, it's apparent we have different musical taste. I actually like Aerosmith and Blondie, but I don't think they deserve induction any more than these three bands.

We covered this already in my thread about them being inducted into the Rock and Roll HOF.

Diamond Dave was a pompous tool, but he did have a great voice and presence. I still prefer Sammy though. His lyrics and happy sense of fun were great.
