Others missing from Rock Hall

September 26, 2009

With regard to the nominees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ["KISS Makes Rock List; Sting Doesn't," by Randy Lewis, Sept. 24], I am constantly disappointed by the omission of five words from any Rock Hall ballot, and I know I'm not alone: Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Never mind that Sting isn't getting in next year. I'm sick and tired of [them] continually ignoring the progressive rock movement of the '70s. Don't tell me bands such as Jethro Tull, Yes and ELP don't belong in there. Those bands were as much responsible for the advent of "arena rock" as Led Zeppelin, the Stones, the Who or anybody else.
