    Heart - the old rocking Heart, not the ballad Heart.
    War
    How is Alice not in?
    King Crimson.
    Ooooo...Bread (kidding - I like them though)
    How are the Stooges not in??
    Deep Purple
    The Motor City Five
    Rush
    The Cure
    A couple of less popular picks that I am on the bubble on are Patsy Cline, Joy Division, T Rex and ABBA.
    The future: Sonic Youth, Metallica, Run DMC, chilly willy, Nirvana
    Just off the top of my head.

    Ah, Live at Budokan. Probably the best live I've every listened to. My cousin turned me into a heavy metal lover in the pre-hair band days, and he saw a lot of live shows, but he always said J. Geils, Cheap Trick, Heart, and John Cougar Mellencamp did some of the best rockin' around live.

    No votes for Iron Maiden? In my pagan days, "Run to the Hills" was one of my favs of all time, especially live (they were openers at about every concert I attended). But the Scorpions were my favorite band.

    Hope this doesn't hijack from the original intent, if so ignore.

    Do you folks think Guns N Roses are HOF material when their time comes?

    On the one hand, took pop-metal away from hair bands and back towards rocking out. Appetite for Distruction was huge with lots of hits (or at least very popular songs), heavy MTV rotation, true rockers in a sea of big hair and spandex. Sortof like the Sexpistols they didn't have any staying power but they came roaring and left just as quickly.

    OTOH: Very short catalog, 4 real albums (and that's being generous by including Lies and counting the Use Your Illusions as two seperate albums - ignore Spagetti Incident and the live stuff). Volitale live shows (saw them twice. The only band to be on both my personal best and worst live shows list) and of course, Axel "My best friend is Danny Boniducie" Rose.

    K.I.S.S. - they've got an army for crying out loud.

    The Cars - invented new wave

    The Cure - Was anybody from the R'n'R HOF alive in the 1980s?

    Black Flag - invented modern California

    Peter Gabriel - one of the biggest acts on planet earth

    Motorhead - unless you're too much of a (expletive) to vote for them

    Rush - 10 million stoned kids can't be wrong

    Kool & the Gang - We've all been to a party right?

    Chubby Checker - So what if he only recorded two songs. Everybody knows them.

    Albert Collins - The Master of the Telecaster

    Jethro Tull - a band that boasts two greatest hits albums, the undisputed kings of flute rock

    ELO - go ahead, listen to ELO and try not to tap your toe, it can't be done

    Peter Frampton - The Chubby Checker of the '70s

    Robert Palmer - and have the backup Betties accept for him

    Iggy Pop/The Stooges - Nothing says "uncool" faster than this omission

    Judas Priest - convinced an entire generation of metal artists to dress up like gay bikers

    Cheap Trick - Unfathomable that they aren't in

    "Weird Al" Yankovic - perhaps the most single brilliant performer of our time

    I could go on, but given who isn't in the R'n'R HOF it's probably more of a badge not to be in it.

    Stunning...bravo! Well done. You've got some great choices of groups I had overlooked.

    Especially like the Chubby Checker/Peter Frampton connection

    I can't believe I forgot Motorhead.

    The track "Welcome to my Nighmare" by itself should be enough, but thats probably a little over the top.

    I'd also throw a vote for Stevie Ray Vaughn out there, but I don't think his first album came out till 1983ish, although IIRC he had a single or two prior to that.
    I was listening to a radio show the other night on the 35th Anninversary of Cooper's "Killer" album. It had some great interviews and clips. I was a huge Alice Cooper fan back in the early-mid 70's.

    KISS, who are in the HOF, state Alice Cooper was a huge influence on them. And Cooper is not in the HOF, and should be.

    Three words: Bay, City, Rollers.

    Also, Til Tuesday, David Hasselhoff, Blind Mellon, The Fixx, Rick Springfield, Katrina and the Waves.

    And I didn't think there were actual Alice Cooper fans. Midwest thing I guess.

    Institutionalizing rock 'n roll, tsk. I hope Gang of Four never make it.

    I just saw Tommy Womack last month and he finiished with "Surrender". He called it the greatest r@r song ever written. He then went into some philosophical stuff and lost me, and then hw played it pretty well.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
