    Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.

    I'll throw a few more names out for future RRHOF consideration:

    Pat Benatar.

    Robert Palmer.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    Blue Oyster Cult. The Replacements. Two of my favorite bands.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Blue Oyster Cult eventually inducted, as the credentials are certainly there.

    As for The Replacements, I view them as I view The Call.

    Both were critically acclaimed bands with quality material, but for some reason the public--even AOR fans of the era--never seemed to fully embrace them even though both were not exactly flops on AOR radio, either.

    I was actually going to feature a track by The Replacements in a future Lost Tracks segment, but, what the heck? Here's a bonus.

    The Replacements--I'll Be You (1989)

    This track climbed to the top of Billboards Top Rock tracks in the Spring of '89.
    Why was this wasn't a correspondingly smash Pop hit, I'll never understand. This band's entire catalog is well worth checking out.

    Favorite Replacements song is Johnny's Gonna Die.

    After the band's breakup Tommy Stinson fronted a group called Bash and Pop. Here's a sample.

    I'd throw Golden Earring into the mix. Love that group.

    It is a fantastic album, definitely one of my 'ten on a desert island' records.

    I love the early BOC pre-hits. On Your Feet Or On Your Knees is a raging live record.

    They are mentioned in this article.

    Unwanted -- Dead or Alive: The Rock Hall’s Top 25 Snubs

    T. Rex

    Marc Bolan & Company were instrumental in the development of glam rock in the 1970s. Bowie got his Rock Hall due. Give T. Rex its props, too.
    And look who else is mentioned.

    The Replacements

    Post-punk poets from Minneapolis blazed the trail for every alternative-rock band to come along since. Gets my vote on the strength of "Here Comes a Regular" alone.

    OTOH, it's difficult to take any article seriously that suggests that Joan Jett And The Blackhearts are even remotely close to RRHOF material.

    Wait for Me, the live version, is one of my favorites.

    Daryl Hall's voice is a treasure. Never sang two refrains the same. Just great.

    Anyone checked out any of the "Live from Daryl's House" sessions? Some quality stuff on there.
