That poll has been around for ages and keeps getting reset every so often.

Even if ELO did get in, It's unlikely Jeff would show up.

That Rock Hall Of Fame is just an excuse to hyperbole the record companies.

I sense if Jeff really wanted in the RRHOF, he'd be in by now. I think JL will be voted in someday but not ELO.. Just my opinion.

well rock&roll hall of fame is just ROCK&ROLL hall of fame, and ELO music is so much, much more than just rock&roll (classic rock, rock&roll, reggae, disco, classic rock, progressive rock, pop, rock... and even more classic rock) :-)

I believe ELO's reggae trip was The Lights Go Down from Time...

"Long Black Road (Electronic Reggae Version)" is the reggae song i was referring to, but i think the "Long Black Road (Japanese ZOOM Bonustrack)" is also reggae. actually even "Starlight" sounds a lot like slow reggae.

here's a short list of other catecories i can think of right now and examples from them:

disco: xanadu
progressive rock: Dreaming of 4000
pop: Julie Don't Live Here
rock: Poker, 10538 Overture
blues: Birmingham Blues
ballad: One Summer Dream
rock&roll: Don't Bring Me Down, Ma Ma Ma Belle
<-"Do Ya" and "Roll Over Beethoven" (are somewhere between these two catecories)->
classic rock: Tightrope, (Concerto for a rainy day) Standin' in The Rain, Mr. Blue Sky, The Diary of Horace Wimp

Title: ELO in Hall of Fame

I believe they will make it in the Hall of Fame in time. They were one of the greatest bands of the '70's. I don't know if Jeff will make it but there is a member who lives in Ohio that may make it there.

Lou Clark? I think the "Hooked on Classics" stuff will shut the door for him. That's not thought of very highly in critics circles.

ELO should be in the Hall of Fame.  The fact that they're not means nothing.  So what if they didn't have 3,000 hits!  So what if they have a lifetime average below .300.  So what if they didn't have 300 wins!

If there's any justice, the Veteran's Committee will vote them in and someday we'll all make that trip to Cooperstown to see our beloved band inducted.

Cooperstown? Isn't that the Baseball Hall of Fame? I'm sure they will make it. There are bands that are less rock n roll than they are that have made it in. And Louis Clark should be there even if he did do classics. He was a part of their success.

Bruce Sutter should go in as a Cub.

Bruce Sutter should go in as an Atlanta Brave and Jeff Lynne shou;d go in as a San Fransisco Giant becasue he is a giant among musicians!


Title: He's performed there

When George Harrison was inducted, Jeff and the remaining members of Willburys performed "While my Guitar Gently Weeps," with Jeff singing lead.  It really was incredible.
