4 thoughts on “The Goldmine Hall of Fame inductees

  1. THIS LIST IS INCOMPLETE….if THE YARDBIRDS is not on it. (Clapton, Beck and Page…ever hear of them?). Jim McCarty just finished another tour with the great band he has had with current members for I think 10 years….I have seen them many many times over the years since they started up again, including Chris Dreja who was forced to retire due to health concerns….(I hope he comes back if the band continues)

    Two bands that are the hardest working (touring band I know) Big Sandy and the Flyright Boys and LOS STRAITJACKETS…who have been on tour again this year and have many many cds…….and next year going to Europe and Austrailia.

    GENE VINCENT and the BLUE CAPS….rocker–underrated.

    LINK WRAY…influence on so many guitarist and grundge and punk bands

    DICK DALE the father of surf music and maybe the innovator of HEAVY METAL.

    Incomplete? Really Duke? Maybe if you bothered to read the introduction, you would know there are 700-plus inductees to be announced. We’re only at about 150. And yes, I’ve heard of Clapton, Beck & Page. In fact, I was buying their records probably before you were born – Phill

  2. Great List!!! I agree with ALMOST everything. How about Paul Revere and The Raiders? They hold the record for the most television appearances by an artist. They may not have had a ton of hits, but what they did have were very unique and successful. These guys were great! I still remember watching them on “Where The Action Is” with Dick Clark hosting. Please consider them in the future.
    Joe – Keep watching for the Raiders. Meanwhile, you can check out this article…
