    For a few years after the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame started in 1986, they inducted around a dozen singers and groups every year. Now it's usually just five or six. They should go back to having 12 (or more) inductees every year because so many worthy artists are still not in.

    I totally agree! Legendary groups shouldn't have to wait 30 or 40 years. One of the inductees in that first ceremony in 1986 was Fats Domino, who died last month at 89. Here is his induction, with Billy Joel doing the honors:
