Deep Purple and Yes should already be in there...and not because I even really like them but KISS should be as well...not for who they are now but for what they were. KISS set the benchmark for arena rock. Plus I really like Gene's kids. Heck just induct his family.

I'll take a listen, Dave!
In the cases of Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens, it's about time. IMO, though, Peter Gabriel, as a solo artist, should not be in ahead of Deep Purple.The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its inductees for 2014 today. Hall & Oates, Nirvana and KISS are among the legendary performers that will be inducted this year.
Held at the Brooklyn Barclays Center in New York, the 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 10, and, for the first time in NY, will be open to the public.
Additional performers being inducted into Rock Hall include Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens

Surprises me a bit. I didn't think KISS would go in so easily. And no Replacements.
Always loved Deep Purple, too, with their deep, foggy music. Maybe next year, and maybe ELO will eventually score a nomination.
Personally, I'm particularly happy about Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, and Cat Stevens. Tea for the Tillerman was a great, trippy album that I've always weirdly associated with The White Album.
And not having ELO in there...that's just stupid. Personally, I think the R&R hall of fame should be exactly that. Rock and Roll. Put rappers in a different venue. NWA and the Beatles should NEVER be in the same building. EVER!
Im going to repeat how thrilled I am with Hall and Oates getting in.
Daryl's voice is a treasure. Never sang a refrain the same way twice.
