Hard to argue with that list. Glad that Al Kooper is on it.

 

And I am sure that Jim A would agree that someone so young and promising needs a long, distinguished career before being eligible. Jim will be there, one day.

'55 and '59 B3's, Leslies 147, 122, 21H, Motif XS7, Mellotrons M300 and M400, Wurlitzer 200, Gibson G101, Vox Continental, Mojo

Good list. I wasn't familiar with Twinkie, checking her out now.

 

Hopefully Mark Stein and the prog guys - Emo, Vincent Crane, Banks - will get in soon.

It is a solid list for sure. I like to gripe.

 

I still think Jim ought to be added sooner rather than later. I bought his whole discography earlier this year and I'm already one or two releases behind. One bad dog, playing, singing, producing, touring, and whatnot.

A few exclusions I hate to see but you can't put in everyone or there will be no one left to put in next year. Lenny Dee and Cherry Wainer would have been nice.

 

One guy who is a multi instrument talent I would personally like to see recognized because he get little recognition is Joachim Young RIP. He was a tremendous talent.

 

PS - well poo.... Jack McDuff didn't make the cut either.

No Banks so it's not representative IMHO.

Totally recognisable style and millions of albums sold world wide (someone remind Hammond the USA is NOT the world ;) )

Nothing wrong with the list, but is anyone else getting tired of all the "Halls of Fame" that now exist? So many seems to diminish the purpose.

 

I see the day when there's a Hall of Fame Hall of Fame, where the people that are inducted are those that have been in more Halls of Fame than anyone else.

Setup: Korg Kronos 61, Roland XV-88, Korg Triton-Rack, Motif-Rack, Korg N1r, Alesis QSR, Roland M-GS64 Yamaha KX-88, KX76, Roland Super-JX, E-Mu Longboard 61, Kawai K1II, Kawai K4.
