Now it's very well known the "actual" Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio is very much considered flawed by a large portion of rock fans so I ask you; If given 30 openings then who do you think would deserve to be included in a brand new Rock Hall? The only limitation on who you can include is that it has to have been at least 25 since the release of the band's debut album since in that respect we'll be playing by the actual Rock Hall's rules since I think that's a good rule. You could even go the extra mile *hint hint wink wink* and post a brief sentence or so as to why you choice that entrant.

So that's it. Who do you think deserves to be immortalized?

That is a capital idea Cosmic...like the others I will have to ponder this one for a day or two before I post my selections.

I love the list but what I put in bold is not true. The blues can be traced back to when slavery was in the US, but rag time was not around until the 1890's.

Now originally I'd planned on giving a sentence or two for each choice but after about 8 people I got bored and decided not to.

Elvis Presley
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Bob Dylan
Queen
The Rolling Stones
Judas Priest
David Bowie
KISS
