    Hmmmm... good question... my guess is there was no length of musical influence, but rather a brief, though profound one. Kinda like Foreigner or Lover Boy?

    Whoops... I guess Foreigner squeaked by The Cars into the Hall of Fame... never mind!

    I think it also had to do with length of time on top or influential. IMO, Cars way better than Foreigner.

    We're not talking baseball here. The Rock and Roll HOF adds absolutely zero to a band's cachet.

    Travesty that it took so long for Deep Purple to get in

    A talented creative band like them can't be in the rock and roll hall of fame. If they were, where would Madonna and Run DMC and ABBA and John Cougar Fucking Mellencamp go?

    I think Benjamin Orr's early demise also hurt them.
