Ranking the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees
Bill Wyman (not that Bill Wyman) has ranked all 214 artists in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for Vulture. He’s wrong, of course.
First off, there are far too many artists that aren’t even rock and roll musicians. Eliminating the country, blues, and hip-hop artists would greatly lessen the load. For example, James Brown is listed as the fifth best inductee. I would say, James Brown never played a lick of rock and roll in his entire career and is flat out a funk artist. However, Prince (#6) is most definitely a funk artist too. He just played a lot of rock too.
I could go on, but it isn’t worth it. These kinds of lists are designed to illicit debate and arguments.
