The Moody Blues are basically the same band they were in 1965. Ever heard of them? The HOF hates them because they compose love songs. And that?s the truth.

Mountain... Moody Blues... Robin Trower... Bachman-Turner Overdrive...Wishbone Ash.

I vote for John Miles, who, besides a brilliant solo career, has written songs for and performed with rock royalty: Tina Turner, Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker, Alan Parsons.

I think the most overlooked artists are the Moody Blues & the Dave Clark Five. This the second year the DC5 are on the nominee list, but I don?t recall the Moody Blues ever being considered.

Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge... These guys are great and still going strong. Johnny Maestro is one of if not the best lead singers! This is long overdue.
