“Rolling Stone” asked their readers who should get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, and here’s how the top 10 shook out:
1. Pearl Jam . . . This will be the first year they’re eligible.
2. The ’70s rock band Little Feat . . . They’ve been eligible since 1996, and have never been nominated.
3. Electric Light Orchestra . . . They’ve been eligible since 1996, but have never been nominated.
4. Janet Jackson . . . She’s been eligible since 2007, and was nominated last year.
5. Yes . . . They’ve been eligible since 1994, and were nominated in 2014 and this past year.
6. The Moody Blues . . . They’ve been eligible since 1989, and have never received a nomination.
7. The Cure . . . They’ve been eligible since 2003, and were nominated in 2012.
8. Jethro Tull . . . They’ve been eligible since 1993, but have never been nominated.
9. Warren Zevon . . . He’s been eligible since 1994, and has never received a nomination.
10. The Cars . . . They’ve been eligible since 2003, and were finally nominated for the first time last year.
We’re several months away from the Rock Hall’s shortlist for the 2017 ceremony, but this could be a good year to catch up on some of these bands . . . because the list of acts that are becoming eligible this year isn’t very strong.
In addition to Pearl Jam, they include: Alanis Morissette, Tupac Shakur, PJ Harvey, Rage Against the Machine, The Cranberries, Crash Test Dummies, Live, Tori Amos, the Spin Doctors, and LFO . . . yes, the LYTE FUNKIE ONES!
