Default 2011 R&R HOFInductees Announced

The class of 2011 in the R&R HOF are, Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love and Tom Waits. Not a very impressive class! Did Tom Waits ever have a top 50 song? Even tho I like Neil Diamond he is not a 'rocker'. Dr. John had maybe one hit song. Can anyone name a Darlene Love song?
In the non-perfomer category.....Jac Holzman founder of Electra Records, signed the Doors and Queen among others and Art Rupe founder of Specialty Recorsd, signed Little Richard and Loyd Price among others.
I saved the best for last...in the sideman category.....Leon Russell.
Two of the inductees have Beatles connections. Leon played at the Concert For Bangla Desh. The Dr. was in the first All Starr Band in 1989.
Two more to add to the list of R&R HOFers that I have seen......Leon and the Dr.. That brings my total up to 51.

Tom Waits is brilliant and definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Just because something is not popular in the mainstream doesn't make it undeserving of recognition. Van Gogh never sold a painting during his lifetime, after all...

The Sex Pistols never had a hit in the U.S., neither did the Velvet Underground or John Lee Hooker... yet they all deserved their inductions. Just like Tom Waits... they were all very influential.

Tom Waits is a great songwriter!

Alice Cooper for sure belongs. Not only is he a great artist, he is a great person. I met Alice Cooper and his wife, they made me feel like they were happy I took a few minutes out of my life to talk to them.

He is a great Beatles fan (who isn't?) also and does a great version of Hey Bulldog. Steve Vai on lead.

Darlene Love has done many recordings, mostly as backing vocals. She has done vocals on "Johnny Angel", "Poor Side Of Town", "Da Doo Ron Ron", "He's A Rebel' and "Tracks Of My Tears". She began her career in 1961.
