For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Chaka most definately but I don't think she really cares. She said she thought she had already been inducted lol . But, I'm really surprised they haven't inducted Miss Ross. eek

Joan Jett is already in the American R&RHOF as a member of The Runaways. But I would like to see her inducted as a member of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

ain't that the truth. lol



As I have said before, An artist life works represents them... anything else is a matter of opinion and taste. If the late great Barry White never makes it into "the Hall" would it matter? I'd think not...
