I think one of the things that makes him so special is that, even though he is hugely influential, nobody who came after him has really ever been able to replicate his style. It's pretty impressive when you think about it because so often the thunder of the highly influential is often muted over the years by the simple fact that their formerly innovative sound becomes commonplace.

That said, naturally I vote yes for Jimi.

That's the worst comparison anyone can come up with...

Just a note: not all influence is good influence. While he inspired plenty of artists' infectious groove he's also responsible for some of the most cringe-worthy indulgent wankery. Of course, it's not like that was his fault.

Any chance we can stop voting in "safe" artists? They might be worth the nomination but there's hardly any discussion behind them.

Get nominating then, lol :P:

I know what you mean though, but there are still some 'safe' artists I'd like to see in the HoF before less worthy ones.

I think the reason only safe artists being nominated is because of the way the voting works.
I said pretty much from the start that it's pointless counting 'No' votes against 'Yes' votes.

You need a huge number of Yes votes to get in just to counteract the 'No' votes. Because of this only safe artists will get in.

Let's just have a prerequisite number of Yes votes needed, say 15 or 20 and let them have a week to get to that total.

It'll totally freshen up this thread.

Not to mention Lenny Kravitz.

That's actually a really good idea!
