I was just thinking today about how perfect of an addition Beefheart would be, everyone on this forum loves him, myself included. 'Doc at the Radar Station' is an excellent album.

Forgot about that bit. I was listening to Decals and Trout Mask an insane amount when I did that write-up. Funny how the day I give Beefheart a listen again after a long break my nomination for him pops up here as well. Spooky!

I'm sure some people dig his stuff, and I respect that, but what he added to the musical landscape doesn't seem too valuable to me. I think he gets some respect for the circles he ran in, and the act he put out there, but again, its not HoF worthy to me.

both your favorite artists cite him as an influence.

i'd think you'd give him more credit than that; if Kathleen Brennan hadn't introduced Waits to Beefheart there would be no Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, Bone Machine... basically anything of his that sounded remotely interesting.

i can understand if you don't like the guy's music (it is an acquired taste), but he's influenced EVERYTHING, whether it be blues, punk, hardcore, prog, psychedelia, avant-garde, etc. on the contrary, he may be one of the most valuable individuals in music history. and he wasn't too shabby of a songwriter either.

You should have been here long enough to know that the argument you're using is as terrible as it is ****. Who gives a **** who influenced who? Waits came back from Europe a new man, and Beefheart alone didn't make him.

To suggest that I should vote him in because I like waits in intellectually bankrupt.

He's not my thing at this current juncture and i voted no. Half the genre's you list that he influenced is even more of a reason for me to vote no. I hate most things about punk and its only gotten worse since 1977. The more I "should" vote for someone, the more they influenced "my favorite artists" the more I vote against them.

I didn't know I only had two favorite artists, or if that, by definition, is even possible.

Any by the by, way to discredit Satchmo, arguably the biggest influence on him. You would want to take away credit from a black artist, you racist ****. I bet you're going to be offended by this too, aren't you? Can't take a joke, can you? Well you know what, I think the best thing for these boards is some sensitivity training. I don't know when you sold yourself to the communist party, but you should reevaluate your life.
