Five For Friday: Not In RRHOF, Part 3

Back with Part 3 of a list of 100 artists and bands that Best Rock Bands.com worthy of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame which have never been considered. The comments are from the website…

  1. Cher, “Believe”: Is she rock? Probably more so than Madonna, who’s been inducted. And let’s not forget those good times with Sonny.
  2. Joe Cocker, “You Can Leave Your Hat On”: That voice! That thing he did with his hands! A master interpreter of songs. Did we mention that voice?
  3. Judy Collins, “Both Sides Now”: More than just another talented folk singer, she was one of the artists who defined her generation.
  4. Phil Collins, “In The Air Tonight”: Already in as a member of Genesis, but he arguably had a bigger impact on his own.
  5. Ry Cooder, “Crossroads”: For his guitar work alone he should be enshrined. Add his work as solo artist and producer, and it’s a no-brainer.

And that’s Five For Friday for May 13, 2022.

  1. I’m dumbfounded that Cocker, Collins and Cooder are not in yet…shocked. that song by Cooder makes wonder if tgat eas not the song from the film Crossroads. It’s an excellent movie

  2. The first time I ever heard this Cher song was in a movie theater where they were playing music before the previews started. I liked it when I heard it and it still sounds good.

    Judy Collins was quite and influence on rockers (CS&N for example) though I wouldn’t call her music very much R&R. But she is an icon of an era. She’s my favorite of all of these.

    Phil Collins made a huge impact on the music industry. I’d say more people know his solo music than that of Genesis. Though I’ve never been much of a fan of his music, Joe Cocker seems kind of legendary in the annals of rock.

    Ry Cooder did some great music, but I’d say he’s more of a musician’s musician which seems like that should have scored some notice in the Hall of Fame.

  3. Wait….Joe Cocker is not in? What? … hard to believe Phil Collins is not in also as a solo artist.

      1. One thing wrong with the Hall is Jann Wenner…he still has influence.
        I agree on both of them. Phil Collins really is a no brainer…as much success as he has had. Cocker’s voice alone should have gotten him in.

          1. Yes that is what I’ve read. He is not the most likable person in the world. I’m surprised bands like Rush got in…it was by constant complaining.

    1. You know, considering some of the people who are in the RRHOF, I’m unpleasantly surprised that neither Donny nor The Osmonds have been considered, nor bands like The Ohio Express or The Archies…
