2013 Songwriter's Hall of Fame Inductees

2013 Songwriter's Hall of Fame

The biggest names inducted this year are Steven Tyler/Joe Perry, JD Souther & Lou Gramm/Mick Jones.


Take a look at my running list of names that are missing from this ever-growing dubious Hall and you will scratch your head even worse than when you look at who's missing from the Rock Hall.
All I can tell you is that if you thought Neil Young, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne or Pete Townshend (just too name a few), were already in the Song Hall, you'd lose a big bet.

P.S.  Unlike the Rock Hall, I have no special insight into who nominates these artists or even who votes for them.  The Song Hall has inducted artists that aren't in the Rock Hall (e.g. Bon Jovi, Hall & Oates and now members of Foreigner), so good for these people for getting recognized.  But legendary names are missing, and I'm surprised that nobody else seems concerned.
