Okay... Here it is...

This thread is for the UM members to nominate and then vote on who WE think are the best professional bands, performers or groups in the Music world...

Rules:
- Nominations are open and accepted from Monday until Thursday evening - every other week.
- Each member may nominate 1 group, performer or band per nominating cycle.
- I will then do a bit of research on each nominee to ensure that they are eligible
- The following Monday the list of nominees will be published in this thread in alphabetical order
- Members will then have until Thursday evening to vote (1 vote per member)
- Friday the group/performer/band with the highest number of votes will be inducted into our Hall
- I and my staff (my cat) are forbidden from making nominations (to keep it fair)
- NO ONE MAY POST DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT ANY NOMINEE - OR THE PERSON WHO NOMINATED THEM

Criteria:
- Groups/bands/performers must have officially formed at least 25 years ago (1987 calendar year or before)
- They must be recognizable professional acts (not local groups that only perform at the local gymnasium or bowling alleys)
- They may be of any style or form of music


As this thread grows I will periodically re-post a list of those inducted.

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OFFICIALLY OPEN

Neil Young & Crazy Horse

(or just Neil Young if need be)

(any chance the cut-off date could eventually be scaled back to 15 or 20 years)?

I proposed the 25 year date originally and no one complained but If enough people request it - sure...

Actually, I am going to have to separate the two I think.... A quick look shows that while they recorded together, they were not officially joined as one 'group' (hence the "and Crazy Horse')... Do you wish Neil Young - or Crazy Horse?  (you may protest this decision if you wish)

I'll go with simply Neil Young. :D

As for the "25-year frame," I hadn't known there was a thread that discussed this. If everyone who participated feels 25-years is the way they want it, then I'm not going to raise an issue with it.

My main reason for asking if it could be cut to either 15 or 20 years is because I felt it would allow some younger members to participate in mentioning bands they like that weren't so "old."

Also, my teen years came in the 90s so it would allow me to vote for many of the bands that came out during the early part of that decade. :)

I have too much of a long list, but if I were to pick somebody that has influenced me and my life for the longest time ..it woul'd be Alice In Chains, before Layne Stayley died. Maybe someone will agree with me...thanks for starting the thread it's pretty interesting.......

Well I find the 25 year limit to be a little too restricting, otherwise I'd go with DJ Shadow. Granted, my vote would probably be all by it's lonesome there. He was the first artist to make an album out of nothing but sampled music, back in 1992 with his debut album Entroducing. On a side note, his cousin is Ritchie Kotzen of Poison fame. Here's a little taste...


Since I'm stuck with this age limit I guess I'll follow up with either Pink Floyd, Django Reinhardt or Ludwig Van Beethoven.

This thread is a follow on to the "Rock And Roll Hall of Shame" Thread I started a month ago or so... the 25 year limit was a copy of the Actual Rock And Roll Hall of Fame - but as I said, if enough people feel it is too restrictive we can just waive it totally... The intent was to separate out some bands that while they might be popular "now" (meaning for a short time) they fade into obscurity when taking "the long view"... One hit wonders so to speak...

EDIT: As mentioned in the original thread (but omitted here - sorry) All cut off times listed in the "Rules" are "Oklahoma Standard Time" (Central Standard Time - US)...

Led Zeppelin... After which comes Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne and of course Judas Priest...  I'm 26 and I'm pretty sure that they existed before I was born... I believe it can be safe to say that they were succeeded by Iron Maiden and such... Just a thought though...
