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

    Why isn't ELO the band in the Rock And Roll hall of fame already?
    Excellent question. I simply assumed they already were in there. Kinda shocking considering the number of hits Jeff Lynne and crew put together.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Yup. ELO had 19 top-40 hits over 15 years, and they're definitely considered one of the biggest RnR HoF snubs. The Cure is the biggest snub imho.

    What about Rush and Kiss?

    ELO, The Cure, Rush, Kiss and Heart are the biggest snubs off of the top of my head. Bad Company, as well.

    I'm not suggesting that they are undeserving, but, IMHO, there is no way that the Beastie Boys should have been inducted before any of the aforementioned bands.

    Based on their merits, they both deserve it. Kiss is a great live show but write terrible songs. People love them anyway though.

    I concur regarding Kiss. Hard Luck Woman is the only Kiss song that I'll go out of my way to listen to. Of course, Rock Stations continue to act as if it never existed whilst playing Detroit Rock City and Lick It Up to the point of nausea.

    Yes indeed. Kiss is bloody horrible, but they've also had a big influence on stage shows and such. Now Rush is the best band ever, and any HOF that doesn't include them is an absolute joke.

    The Beastie Boys and Laura Nyro are in, but Chicago and KISS are out?! No way, writes journalist/musician Jamie Reno.

    KISS is one of those bamds whose sum is definitely less than their parts. Some great stuff, just not enough of it to say they belong to the hall.

    They are one of my favorite bands but when you look at the material, it isn't that great.

    If Hall and Oates don't get in, something is pretty wrong.

    You'll get no argument from me, Dom.

    As an aside, much like Poco, Kenny Loggins and the late Dan Fogelberg, Hall and Oates, IMHO, have been unfairly pigeonholed as Pop artists only. When, in reality, all of the aforementioned artists have had a much larger impact on AOR radio than most realize.

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

    I've campaigned far and wide for ELO for years, and was a bit shocked when I realized Hall and Oates weren't in. I think The Rolling Stone has always had some animosity toward ELO because of their pioneering work in enhancing their concerts with recorded music, which was pretty controversial back in the day, and RS seems to have a pretty big say in the Hall.

    One of my jukebox favorites. The problem with Hall and Oates is they reached their chart zenith was some schmaltzy hits: Kiss on my List, You Make My Dreams, Private Eyes. But She's Gone, Say It Isn't So, Rich Girl, Maneater..... the good stuff outweighs the bad.

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

    She's Gone, specifically, the LP version from Abandoned Luncheonette remains the definitive H&O track, IMHO.

    Fun fact: She's Gone didn't become a smash pop hit until two years after it was initially released. Of course, AOR stations were playing it when it was first released.
