Jim Steinman For Rock Hall Campaign

The New York morning team of Steve Mason & Sue Kolinsky who host what they
call "The Anti Show" on 102.7 WNEW have launched the online ROCK HALL
OVERSIGHT PETITION at the show's website at

The list of overlooked candidates was compiled by Mason, Kolinsky, and
callers over a period of weeks. "There were some obvious ommissions like
Aerosmith and Queen," says Mason, "but there are also some personal
favorites." Sue Kolinsky is a big fan of Steely Dan and Laura Nyro, while
Mason is a Harry Chapin afficianado and, having grown up in Toledo, has a
soft spot for straight ahead rock like 38 Special, REO Speedwagon, and Cheap
Trick. Two of the candidates who have clearly earned a place in The Rock
Hall, but might not garner support without a public push are Burt Bacharach
and Bernie Taupin. "Bacharach's career and influence spans the 60's, 70's,
80's, and 90's," Mason points out. "From his string of hits with Dionne
Warwick to his recent collaborations with Elvis Costello, he is a
distinctive musical voice that deserves recognition. As for Taupin, it is
his lyrics that created hit after hit for Elton John. The Rock Hall is for
songwriters as much as it is for performers."

Visitors to the website at can vote for as many of the
candidates as they believe are deserving of Rock immortality. Mason &
Kolinsky will foreward all online petitions to Rock Hall voters, the Rock &
Roll Hall of Fame, and to major music publications. Here is a list of all of

  • 38 Special
  • Aerosmith
  • Burt Bacharach
  • Harry Chapin
  • Cheap Trick
  • Don McLean
  • Moody Blues
  • Rush
  • Laura Nyro
  • Queen
  • Stevie Nicks (solo)
  • REO Speedwagon
  • Jim Steinman (writer/producer)
  • Bernie Taupin
  • Steely Dan

Of course you can also vote for Meat Loaf!
