1st Annual Yea Or Nay Rock Hall Contenders Pt. 1

Read my blog over the years and you will get my opinions on why certain should be and shouldn't be in the Rock Hall.  This year I decided to give the many contenders still eligible  a simple Yea or Nay.   Most of these names are ones I've seen bandied about for years.  This was done very quickly, so it's not in alphabetical order.  And, truth be told, the yeas far out weigh the nays.  Oh well, I guess I'm too nice.
