15 Outrageous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs By Dave Basner - October 15, 2019
Today, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the 2020 list of nominees, and while the Doobie Brothers, Judas Priest, Soundgarden, Pat Benatar and Motorhead made the short list, there are quite a few artists out there who should be in the Hall but didn’t even make the cut this year.
Musicians are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their debut album, but they first have to be chosen by the Hall's nominating committee, which is made up of music industry insiders as well as musicians like Dave Grohl, and ?uestlove. From there, ballots go out to 1,000 historians, artists and more within the music industry and acts with the most votes get inducted. The public even gets to vote, with the top five acts the pick acting as one ballot.
It seems, however, there have been quite a few rockers who have been overlooked. Here are 20 that are overdue for induction:
8. Jethro Tull: If the prog rockers can beat Metallica for the first-ever Grammy for Hard Rock/Metal in 1989, they should definitely be in the Hall.
chefseanleone 6 hours ago LINK My “ high fidelity” moment ... • Why Jethro Tull is not in the rock n roll hall of fame... one only knows, but regardless, Ian Anderson is the top 3 best front man, showman, musicians in rock n roll, period! I dare you to challenge me...
Pictures were taken by my father in 1973 at the Fox Theater in St.louis, a “Passion Play Tour” Jethro Tulls best concept, theme, and musical album in my opinion. • ...and why is Martin Barre not in the 20 best guitarists Thank you Rolling Stone magazine to overlook artists...
jackinthegreen: Cream without Eric??? Santana without Carlos?? and not even with a stand-in player.....you're easily pleased, I reckon most people would not be happy to say the least...

jackinthegreen: If it was Scott that got Covid would they have played the gigs without a drummer?

ash: It's Tull not Cream and my answer stands. Now it there was no flute player...No flute no Tull . I've seen Ian play with just an ipod backing track it was great

jackinthegreen: "No flute, no Tull".......hmmmm tell that to MB when he's doing all the Tull stuff..
May 3, 2022 20:18:27 GMT
jackinthegreen: and I've seen Ian doing his one man thing with just the backing track too, but that's not billed as a Jethro Tull concert.....
May 3, 2022 20:19:44 GMT
jackinthegreen: I do agree he's brilliant at playing to his own backing tracks though

ash: My first answer stands in stone

jackinthegreen: Cheers MD, I can only see the link from the "Home" page, but disappears when looking at threads etc, so find if I open it up in a new window it then plays constantly

smint100: Good Lord, why did no one tell me about the radio.net! I've spent a joyful afternoon in the garden watching the strawberries ripen - I mean, editing a book - and listening to unadulterated Tull. Heaven!
