    Perhaps you have a better theory about why they expanded the footprint but I don’t think it’s a stretch to suggest they wanted to freshen it up.

    Of course,  makes perfect sense.  Take the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” brand and bastardize it by adding and promoting non Rock and Roll music and non rock artists in order to “freshen it up”. Brilliant.

     

    Oh and while I like Badfinger enough they never had an album higher than 28th and only four Top 10 singles. The RRHoF doesn’t miss Badfinger nor was it created to respresent “Bands that 5 O.T. Likes”.

     

    Who are you quoting?

     

    It’s not only me that thinks Badfinger should be in the RRHoF. These writers makes a good case. As does their music.

    Why Aren’t They In The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame: Badfinger

     

    Badfinger – Baby Blue

     

    This is a Badfinger song covered by over 180 artists.  Including Harry Nilsson, who had a #1 hit with it and Mariah Carey who had a #2 hit with it.  A song that Paul McCartney once described as “the killer song of all time”.
