The inclusion of Chicago, one of the greatest American bands ever with legendary guitarist Terry Kath (whom Jimmy Hendrix said was better than he), is a no brainer. They didn't make the HOF until just recently. Meanwhile, unknown pathetic 'rap' acts got in. CHICAGO (1969-1977) being the Rolls Royce of Rock according to one music critic, released one of the best debut albums and sophomore albums ever and no band could touch them during their peak from 1969-1977. Joe Walsh has said: "There’s a lot of politics in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The corporate sponsors get to pick [the nominees], and then the people get to vote. There’s a lot of artists, I don’t know why they’re in there and there’s a lot of people, I don’t know why they’re not.” “It may be an honor, but it’s only an honor if it’s fan-driven. To be chosen by someone who I don’t even know who they are just to become a member of a club like that? It doesn’t really have any meaning to me. So until they change the rules or make it more fan-based, it’s not going to make or break anything we do. That’s how I feel about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Too many great bands have not been put in or it took 10,12 nominations just to be accepted." By the way, Joe Walsh actually helped Terry Kath's daughter Michelle to finish her film about her father. The film is called "The Terry Kath Experience."
