Default Re: Been A long Time but R & R Hall Of Fame 2018 BIG NEWS!

I agree that The Moody Blues were long overdue for that recognition. I got into them after someone put me onto them in 1981. The first album I bought was "Octave" and I especially liked the song "Driftwood". I remembered years earlier when "Nights in White Satin" was a huge hit around Australia and overseas. I saw them in concert two or three times. Justin Hayward did a solo tour of Australia in October this year.

And the late Nina Simone was also deserving of the honour. A unique, soulful voice and excellent songwriter and musician. I'm not sure which of her songs got the biggest airplay, but around 1987 "My Baby Just Cares for Me" became a huge hit after being used for a perfume commercial.
