I think that Crazy Horse's reference to the BeeGees' three comebacks was an astute observation and not the sole reason for nominating, JazzBo ! It is entirely up to the members to decide who is nominated/inducted. Popularity and worthiness is a factor and will obviously entice members to vote or not. The American Music Hall of Fame seems to induct any one who had a hit record just to keep the program going !!!!...lol

My answer to your guestion ...whatever the members decide! Most polls would not even look at John Fahey...but we did !!!!!...Confusedmile:Cool


jazzboCR Wrote:A question here--Is the HoF about popularity or worthiness? Bob Dylan re-invented himself several times--doesn't each time count as a "comeback"? And how about the Beach Boys from cover band to inventive pop band to whatever it was they became near the end of the creative period? Look at the top of the charts for the last 10 years and point to the genuine worthiness there, even short-term...I'm waiting with bated breath.

doesnt it all come down to popularity with the R+R HoF in Cleveland,Ohio also??????

doesnt it all come down to popularity and age with the Grammy Awards also?????

classic "age" thing....Neil Young didnt win his first Grammy until a handful of years ago with his "fork in the road" album!Dylan also,only a few years ago...McCartney hadnt won one for decades until the late 1990s(previous one would have been for "live and let die" in '73ish)

I agree Crazy mate ! They honour and praise the icons when they are close to croaking !...lol

Another (and to my mind, as good) example is Freddy Fender--5 nominations, 2 wins: once at 62 with a group; one at 65 by himself. And BTW he re-invented himself 3 times, without a big support staff and not because he'd faded in a genre. Mr. Fender was a class act through-and-through. Sorely missed.
A man accustomed to hear only the echo of his own sentiments, soon bars all the common avenues of delight, and has no part in the general gratification of mankind--Dr. Johnson
What he said. Amen, Bro--JazzboCR

You're very welcome SteveO - glad you enjoyed it. I voted yes for the Bee Gees a little while ago - did you count it? We may have a flurry of inductions!! :biggrin:
