Default Ringo To Be Inducted In R&R HOF?

It has been reported by, and others that Ringo will be in the R&R HOF class of 2008. I would think that at this point of time that they mean he is on the short list of CANDIDATES. The other candidates will be announced later this month and the inductees will be announced in December.
I may have to rethink my opinion that in the last few years, the R&R HOF has really went downhill. Ringo will give the R&R HOF a huge shot of class.

He deserves it, not only because of the Beatles, but also because of his solo career.
Ok, maybe he wasn't always on a high level, but in the early days, and in the last 15 years, he managed to put out some pretty good albums, praised by the critics and well recieved by the public.
It would be great to see Ringo in the RR Hall of Fame!

At least Wenner, Marsh and Evans - RRHOF nominating committee - got this nomination right.

They still have a long way to go to repair their lack of credibility.

Ringo Starr inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Sept. 3, 2007

- The drummer - who already features in the US museum as one fourth of The Beatles - is set to be recognised for his work as a solo artist next year.

If he is inducted, Ringo will join ex-bandmates John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison who have all been individually honoured as well as collectively.

A source said: "Ringo's work as a solo artist has never been taken as seriously as the other ex-Beatles but he's actually enjoyed a lot of success in his own right, particularly in America. It's hard to imagine, but there was even a point in the 70s when his records were briefly outselling those of John, George and Paul."

An album of Ringo's greatest hits as a solo artist, entitled 'The Very Best of Ringo Starr', was released last week.

The 67-year-old musician continues to perform live with his All Starr Band and his other group, The Roundheads.

The source added: "Having your own place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is generally considered to be one of the biggest honours a musician can have. Ringo is now among the favourites to be inducted next year."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a museum in Cleveland, Ohio, which celebrates the achievements of artists who have had a major influence on the music industry.

A handful of artists have been inducted into the Hall in a special New York ceremony every year since it was created in 1986.

Inductees include Elvis Presley, Prince, U2, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.
