Default Re: Vote For Lightfoot

Very true.

But I think of someone like Johnny Cash, who is in the HOF, deservedly so, although I don't think that many people really consider him a rock-and-roller.

Or, to come at it from a different direction, Gordon is in the Canadian Country Hall of Fame, but I don't think of him as a country singer. What makes him so unique, and so worthy of recognition as an artist, is that his music defies pigeonholing. His work transcends any particular genre, and I think he deserves whatever accolades can be given, even if they may not seem to fit exactly.
