Another good call. He may have only had one US hit, but he produced Elvis Costello's first four records (his best by far), wrote the classic song "What's So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding," wrote "The Beast in Me" which was the center piece of Johnny Cash's comeback American Recordings album, was in Rockpile, one of the most underrated bands of all time, produced one of the Pretender's earliest recordings. (Their cover of "Stop Your Sobbing") - The list goes on and on...
And in the end...

Guess Who reccomendation: Live At the Paramount (Seattle 1970).
As stupendous as their recordings are - wait until you hear their songs live- at full throttle, on this OUTSTANDING, double (2) re-mastered disc! 8) :mrgreen:

holy carp ! these lists are stunning...all of these are not in...????

somethings rotten in denmark ! there is not one mention that should not be in...at the tepid pace they are putting people in, it'll be the next century before they get some of these in !

they just need to set the date for inclusion ( 20-30 years in the past) and let everyone one of the really good ones in...it's just a pathetic excuse to have a show, and an issue of RS...Jann, you putz, do as macca said...let 'em in !

Ha, that's the same to Grammy award where some nominations have nothing to do with the artists. One day I saw Jethro Tull winning on Heavy Metal category! I just had to laugh! They've always classified as prog rock band, haven't they? And saw some unfair nominations that I won't be listing here, because it'll take too much space here!

Are the BeeGees Hall of Famers? I ask because it is after all, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Disco tends to make things...shrivel up a bit. Gee, is it cold in here? I think we have shrinkage :wink:

The Bee Gees got in 2003 chris. They were always more than about disco to me, their 60s act was acceptably noteworthy. They really picked up on the Beatles baroque/chamber-type rock stuff, sounded very influenced by Revolver/Sgt. Pepper.

Yeah, The BGs were just "infected" by Disco fever in mid 70s. Not that they hadn't quality in that decade but sincerely I do prefer their 60s hits.
