Report: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finally inducts the Crickets, the Comets, and others…

Both Buddy Holly and Bill Haley may have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame, but their backing bands have never got the induction along with them. Finally, after all these years, Buddy Holly’s backing band, the Crickets and Bill Haley’s backing band, the Comets will get the respect they deserve.

The backing bands of Smokey Robinson, James Brown, Hank Ballard and Gene Vincent will also get inducted.

See the full article, here.

Those are nice inductions and well deserved but they keep snubbing, Crazy Horse (Neil Young’s backing band). When will Crazy Horse ever get their respect? Also, the E Street Band (Springsteen).
