    That waitress was Kate Murtaugh and had a good film career. She was in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s amongst many others.

    Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie in, and rightfully so I guess, but then what about Ramblin' Jack Elliott?
    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.

    As well as a gazillion AOR radio hits which never reached the Pop Top 40.

    Re: Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame snubs thread.

    Another, IMHO, glaring omission:

    Multiple Platinum Albums? Check.

    Multiple Pop Top 40 hits? Check.

    A Billboard Number one single? Check.

    At least two songs that still Oldies/Classic Rock Radio staples? Check.

    Supremely talented songwriter, instrumentalist and vocalist? Check.

    Few, if any, peers as a humanitarian? Check.

    Adored by both critics as well as the public? Check.

    It's well past time to posthumously induct Harry Chapin into the RRHOF.

    A brilliant songwriter whose two biggest hits were written by other people. Speaking of which, I think they should induct Badfinger just to make it all up to them a little. Maybe the most tragic band of all time. First band signed to Apple Records (Beatles label, not Steve Jobs, kiddies), Apple falls apart just as they're taking off, they trust a manager who was incompetent and/or crooked (I'd have to look it up), both of their songwriters, the singer and the guitarist, kill themselves because of the mess, years apart. And then, as if that wasn't enough, Mariah Carey covers "Without You" and Harry Chapin dies while her version is out.

    At least their reputation was revived when Walter White died to "Baby Blue".




    Edit: Sorry about the spoiler. Maybe Walt gets better?

    Mariah Carey was 11 years old and not yet covering anything when Harry Chapin, who wrote all of his material, died. You're confusing Chapin with Nilsson.

    I agree about Badfinger, though. They should be inducted on the basis of "No Matter What" alone.

    And I have been this whole thread. Sorry. I think I was thrown off in the beginning because there's been a strong push for Nillson in recent years, including a song written supporting his candidacy.

    No big deal. It happens to the best of us.

    Once ELO finally gained RRHOF induction, I promised myself that I wouldn't get wrapped up in sort of debate. But old habits die hard, and here I am.

    Harry Nilsson, IMO, should be in.
