The rest of the inductees: reggae legend Jimmy Cliff (the soundtrack to The Harder They Come, which he starred in, features most of his greatest songs, and is maybe the best non-Marley reggae album ever, and one of the best albums ever in any genre).
Genesis - a band I am a big fan of. Were they super influencial on rock and roll? Hard to say. But the timing couldn't be worse: Peter Gabriel may be willing to peform with the band, but Phil Collins is sadly unable to play the drums at the moment.
The Hollies - I'm sure Little Steven campaigned hard for this one, as he did in years past for The Dave Clark 5 and The Rascals. I wasn't convinced about either of those bands either, until I heard Little Steven and Tom Hanks' speeches about them, respectively.
ABBA - If this was the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, no question. I wouldn't have voted for them in a million years. I feel the same way about Hall of Famers James Taylor and Leonard Cohen. Great songwriters, not rock and roll.
My ballot would have featured The Stooges and Jimmy Cliff, as well as The Red Hot Chili Peppers (maybe they pulled themselves off the ballot due to their recent lineup change), KISS and LL Cool J.
And the Hall of Fame still needs to induct Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls, The MC5 and Motorhead!
