Leading Light of Misunderstood Rock Era

Just as I'm on the bubble as to whether Tom Dowd belongs in the RRHOF (the documentary didn't convince me), I'm also on the bubble with Phil Walden Southern Rock Pioneer Dies. But I'd have no problem if he got recognized, mainly because Southern Rock is an oft-misunderstood genre (it was more than rednecks with electric guitars). Walden's Capricorn Records was indeed a leading light of Southern Rock's golden era, that I'm glad to see his passing has at least made enough headlines to get the Hall to consider him.
