Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    How does that work? Will he have to compete in some way in order to get in?

    I really don't know why. There are a lot of acts that aren't rock and roll in it. It should just be called the music hall of fame.

    More than one band gets in but to be honest I have no idea how it works.

    i think 'industry insiders' vote and there's a vote total or percentage of votes that they have to reach to make it. so as many people get inducted as make the vote mark.

    also tom waits has been eligible for like 12 years so i don't really see him getting in, honestly. not yet at least.

    What did Donovan do other than Sunshine Superman, and Mellow Yellow, and Season of the Witch, and Atlantis... okay I guess that's sort of a large number of songs.

    Sorry Donovan, I take it back.

    donovan was pretty successful over a long period of time, so i'm definitely not surprised by that. he was definitely bigger outside of the US, though, and critically has always been regarded as an also-ran to dylan.

    I don't have a problem with people not enjoying Tom Waits. His voice is off the charts different so I don't expect everyone to like him.

    Now if you have a problem with his music or lyrics then I'm done with you.
