It’s nice to see a more critical success and influential artist like Tom Waits get nominated for the Rock Hall, but as we enter the 2010’s, I keep wondering if and when some of the more influential artists like The Smiths, Pixies, Gram Parsons and eventually a band like Radiohead will enter.
What kind of bar is being set when musicians like Bob Seger can be inducted but bands like The Smiths fail to get even a hint of recognition by the Induction committees?
