How many singer/songwriters were doing things like this?

Let me try and use an example. Nick Drake certainly had fans in his time but it took many many years after his death to achieve the revered status he has today with many people. I think the same will happen with Smith. Of course he has fans now but as for a hall of fame I think it's not quite his time yet.

I think you have a point.

And why isn't this poll public after the Led Zep fiasco?

Yeah a public poll would be nice so we could discuss it with the disagree-ers.

I was thinking more along the lines of spoilt votes, multiple accounts etc.

I definitely think the votes in the next round from the HOF panel have to be public.

On the subject, I'm either voting no or not voting at all. I can't justify voting yes for him. I'm just not that big a fan. I can appreciate the artist's skill and influence but neither are so great to overcome my lack of avid enthusiasms for the music.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Has enough time passed? I think Smith is safe to get in

If artists like Elliott Smith get in, then the hall of fame will just become "Artists that some people on MB like" and we will have like 500 artists in there.

True. (I like Smith though) should the percentage be raised higher? I mean 50% isn't that much.
