    In Your Opinion Who are Some of the R&R HOF's Biggest Snubs???

    In the other thread I mentioned that I felt Zevon was long overdue for HOF induction. I got to wondering about who you folks feel are some of the Hall's biggest snubs? I'll start with a couple and add some more later in the thread.

    Why hasn't THE GUESS WHO been inducted ? Gosh, Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings made some great music. Some truly iconic songs. TGW deserves serious consideration.

    I also think BAD COMPANY deserves induction. And speaking of BC, why in the hell is Paul Rodgers not in the Hall. This guy, in my opinion, is one of the greatest voices in the history of rock music. An all-time R&R great!!! The guy still has some crazy good pipes. Still sings 'em like forty years ago.

    Paul Rodgers is easily the biggest snub of an individual from the R&R HOF. One of the 4 or 5 best voices ever. If they don't want Bad Company in for whatever reason, Rodgers himself should be in for his overall body of work.

    Couldn't agree more. Snubs like Rodgers makes the Hall seem like a complete sham. I don't know how they could justify the snub of Paul.

    For me it was Aerosmith, 1978, just a MESS

    BTW not having the Monkees in the HOF is criminal. They invented the stadium show and had numerous hits, Dolenz was the first rocker to own a Moog as well

    Saw them when they first broke at Hara Arena in Dayton. We thought it was going to be a great show but it was really lackluster. Too much coke probably.

    I'd like to see this guy inducted. Been doing it since the '60's and still at it today. Should be in the HOF.

    Another personal favorite by TJ&S . He still sounds like he did decades ago.
