The class of 2016 has been announced:

Steve Miller Band
Cheap Trick
Deep Purple
Chicago
NWA

I'm disappointed that Yes and The Cars didn't get in but I am sure they will be back on next year's ballot

I am disappointed that Los Lobos didn't get in from the original list, but I'm good with Purple, Chicago and Cheap Trick all getting in. I didn't expect that all 3 would get in this year.

It looks like the members of Purple being inducted are:

Blackmore
Gillan
Lord
Paice
Glover
Coverdale
Hughes
Evans

Disappointing that Steve Morse wasn't included.

I think Steve Morse has been a member of Deep Purple longer than Coverdale, Hughes, and Evans combined.

He has been. He has been on more DP albums than all three combined also. He is a huge part of why they were able to continue as he is glue for the others to bond to.

This is a rare year for me where I believe that the Inductees are deserving except for the annual Rap entry. It will be funnier each year to see who they include from rap. Snoop followed by Ice T and after that........anyone who is on parole?

Yes will go in next year.

HOORAY!!! Finally, Purple gets in! Just a shame that those fools who vote waited until Jon Lord had been dead for several years to recognize this more than deserving band.

As far as members, yeah I agree that it's disappointing about Morse............I think he's been in the band for 20 years now, or close to it. If you put him in, really you'd have to put Don Airey in as well; he's been their keyboard player for around 15 years, nearly as long as Morse has been around.

Rod Evans? He was in the band for what, their first two records? Maybe two years. Don't forget though, Evans was their original lead vocalist, and he deserves some recognition for being there at the band's beginning. Evans went on to form Captain Beyond, a GREAT band which never got any recognition. I am fortunate to say that I saw them, and WOW!!! I know that he became an x-ray technician after that because a former roommate of mine way back when was dating Evans' ex-girlfriend.

I think it's quite obvious that they chose to honor the "classic" era of the band. I choose not to put up much of a stink over this. I'm just glad that the idiots finally pulled their heads out of their asses and put one of the very best hard rock bands of all-time into the Hall Of Fame. The Coverdale/Hughes era was an incredible one and I'm glad they both were included.

Somewhere Rod Evans has a HUGE grin on his face.

I've never been a Cheap Trick fan, but Chicago and Steve Miller Band are certainly deserving. NWA? Could not name you one single tune.

Evans went on to form Captain Beyond which he did two albums with. Actually real good albums if you are looking for something old that you may not have heard originally.

He toured in the early 80s as Deep Purple with real bad results as people went and then realized that it was not DP. He got sued in a big way. Had no money to pay so he lost his royalties from the original Purple albums.

Morse has been in Purple almost 10 years longer than Airey. Put them both in as they are deserving musicians with great resumes. Oh well.

Just wait till they try and figure out who from Yes should be inducted. Don't know if the stage is big enough.

You beat me to the punch, I had just edited my post to include Captain Beyond in Evan's resume when I saw your post. I knew he had toured as Deep Purple at one point and I read that it was really BAD. Did not know he got sued. I agree, CB's two records are really good especially the first one, "Captain Beyond".

A good list (with the exception of Steve Miller, who should be banned for life for Abracadabra, lol!)

NWA are most deserving in the rap category and while I know most of you on here deplore rap, I enjoy some of it when it's done well (Ice-T, Tribe Called Quest, Arrested Development, Blackilicious, etc.) and NWA are some of the founders and the best. Straight Outa Compton is a classic. They deserve it.

Wow.


Will never forget a Source magazine cover called The Top 10 Rappers on Death Row. Considering that just about every rapper inducted in the HOF so far have been gang members, my statement is not so far from reality.


Each year a rapper/rappers gets inducted and each time they are called the founders or innovators. This is interesting to me as they just stole others recorded music/beats and talked over them. How many people did it take to invent that?

But to stay PC, they will induct a rapper each year regardless of who they are up against or how deserving.

They by and large did not tour, no albums sales compared to the greats or have a sustained career with the group and were completely racist. This gets you in the HOF? One of them couldn't even rap so they recorded him one line at a time. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube had the talent and Ice Cube left with that talent right away.

They only have 2 albums and the guy who could at least write lyrics left after the first? This is HOF worthy? Dr. Dre or Ice Cube solo are more deserving than NWA.

Glad to see Chicago get in - their first few albums were fantastic
Terry Kath was one of the best guitar players of that era but seems to get overlooked when people talk about "the greats"

There is precedence here with the Rock Hall as the Sex Pistols got in on one album, no album sales, no sustained career and with pretty much worse attitude than everyone in NWA. They were also as manufactured as The Monkees, but somehow the critics loved them and they had credibility.

I'm guessing both are justified being in by the musical and cultural movements they helped create.

Would also question the exclusion of Little Feat and of course, Delaney and Bonnie.

Also, hip hop is world wide, uniting culture around the world. Lots of great music, Straight Outta Compton is a great movie. I will not right off a whole genre.

P.S. Death Row is a record label. :/

Wasn't trying to be "PC," that just surprised me coming from you.

The rap/hip-hop artists already in the HOF are:

Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five
Run-DMC
Public Enemy
Beastie Boys

Most of those guys are gang members? Wow. I did not know that, especially those three Jewish kids from Brooklyn.

I had to leave that out. Imagine how it would look if I added the part - "except for the white boys".

Just imagine that all of them are founders and innovators. Makes it even more amazing how similar they all sound.

That wasn't the Death Row that they were talking about unfortunately. This was the real one although at times the two could easily be confused. Hip Hop is great and every artist belongs in the HOF.

I think Steve Morse has been a member of Deep Purple longer than Coverdale, Hughes, and Evans combined.


Even though he was only with the band for a short time, it would be great to see Tommy Bolin too.

I remember when I bought Straight Out of Compton. My friend who was always into rap had the cassette so when I was on Easter break with my parents my Mom took me to the mall so I could pick out a tape for my Easter gift. I picked Straight Out of Compton. I was way big into the classic rock bands growing up and not really into the old school rap, but NWA was different. Very different ofcourse. Not exactly sure what the appeal was looking back, however no doubt did they change the course of pop music from that point forward. When we got into high school the Running EP and Niggaz for Life and the solo releases were all very heavily played everywhere we went. They were a really big deal back then and in terms of their impact on music that followed them in that category think they are deserving for the recognition. I don't really care if they were gang members or sold drugs or any of that. They were game changers in the music world.

Thinking back though....maybe the world would be a better place without the growth of gangster rap. Well, I am in my 40s now...

Should I admit I still know most of the words to about a quarter of their songs? LOL.

Actually reflecting back on the music...maybe there are more reasons NWA shouldn't be in the hall of fame rather than reasons they should be?

I love that Purple finally made it. Long overdue. I wonder which members will show. As i recall, when Halen got inducted, Eddie and Dave didnt show. I could see Gillan and Blackmore blowing it off. They dont like the HOF; they dont like each other. Id love to see them appear and play something OTHER than "Smoke."

If Ritchie appears, maybe he will wear a Rainbow shirt!

Coverdale and Hughes will be there. No force on earth can keep them from the mic. Jeez. I pray they dont get speech time, though Hughes would at least mention Bolin.

Glover is a level headed diplomat. He might appear, though if he does, he will certainly mention Steve Morse, if not ask why he is not present. Morse sure deserves it. He has put in the miles and the years and is the sound behind 4 studio albums.

To me, one of the most glaring rock absences is King Crimson. Highly influential.

I'm still waiting for Steppenwolf to get in. That's right, ABBA, Hall and Oates, and Donovan are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but Steppenwolf isn't. ABBA, Hall and Oates, Donovan, Steppenwolf, which group/name seems worth of inclusion in a "rock and roll hall of fame?"

That said, one day, these pretentious critics are going to have to bite the bullet and induct Def Leppard and Motley Crue. Hair Metal Dominated rock music for the latter half of the 80's, and those bands sold millions, and millions of albums.

And of course The Cars. And Yes. And King Crimson. Seriously, and I like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but they are in, and the Cars, Yes, and King Crimson aren't?!

Those four acts are founders and innovators in that genre.

I'm pretty confident with you being the rap connoisseur that you are, you could actually discern the difference between Run-DMC and Public Enemy.
