There have been many who have called the omission of Connie Francis to the Hall as the biggest crime the Hall committee has done thus far. We don’t necessarily agree with that, but we don’t completely disagree that she was the template that other female Pop stars followed. Her large catalogue of hit singles had few equals in the early 60’s but despite her massive success (and make no mistake, she was extremely popular) very little about Connie screamed “Rock Star” and this is likely why the Hall has ignored her thus far.

    As this list (and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) finds itself with a large amount of Singer/Songwriters, it is sometimes tempting just to say that this was the only genre that we are looking to represent. With Tim Buckley, just calling him a Singer/Songwriter seems so empty.   Like so many, Tim Buckley emerged from the Folk Rock…
