I think the Bee Gees are in.

The Monkees should be in the Hall of Fame!

theDingle wrote: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.


You know they wrote "To Love Somebody" for Otis Redding, but sadly he died before he could record it. :( I think he was all set to record it as well. It would have been perfect for him. Then maybe we would have been spared Michael Bolton's version. :puker

Yeah, their late '60s stuff is brilliant. I also really like "Lonely Days." Very Lennonish vocals. Al Green does a great version of "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart."

Getting back to "To Love Somebody," there was a great version of this done with Rod Stewart and Booker T and the MGs back in the mid '70s. (Before Al Jackson was murdered) A great reminder of why Rod Stewart once really mattered.
And in the end...

A look at my March 15th list (above) of those deserving, but not in the hall (along with other people's listings), reveal the flaws in The Rock and Hall of Fame.
In light of that, Wings is in good company!

Rick's point is well taken, the system is flawed!
