Steven Van Zandt Demands Procol Harum Rock Hall Induction (A Top Story)


.
On Thursday Steven Van Zandt Demands Procol Harum Rock Hall Induction was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Last week, Radio.com spoke with Bruce Springsteen sidekick and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt about his Rock And Roll Forever Foundation, his initiative to get music history integrated with public school curriculum. But Little Steven being Little Steven, he's juggling a number of projects right now.

We spoke to him about a few other things on his agenda including his recent hiatus from E Street Band, the Rascals' reunion shows (which he prompted and produced) and, for the fun of it, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, which he often seems to be at least peripherally involved in.

Van Zandt famously advocated for the Rascals' induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1997. Another group whom he campaigned for was the Hollies. Former members Allen Clarke and Graham Nash attended the ceremony, but founding members Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliott were unable to attend… because the current version of the Hollies had a gig in London the night of the induction. This still rankles Van Zandt.

"I couldn't get all the Hollies to show up to the f***ing Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame," he said, "after I practically had to kill people to get them in!"

So, who is the next artist who he thinks deserves induction? "Easy answer: Procol Harum!" he declares, with no pause at all. "It's absurd that they aren't in yet! They're No. 1 for me, on my ballot. I have a lot of No. 2′s, including Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio, the greatest rockabilly group of all time, arguably… other than Elvis, Scotty and Bill," referencing Elvis Presley and his early backing group Scotty Moore (on guitar) and Bill Black (on bass). - Find out who else he things should be inducted and more.
