Always felt the Zombies were underrated in a similar way to The Kinks, but the Kinks kept going and justified their legendary status and the Zombies became ... Argent. There is an interesting link between the two bands in that bass player Jim Rodford hung around the original Zombies though not an official member, then was an original in Argent before becoming the longest tenured bass player for the Kinks and then going back as part of the Zombies revival. RIP Jim.
Bryan Ferry was the quintessentially cool front man with Roxy Music, and though somewhat unfairly, negatively associated with club music, they had some great musicians in the group.
Interesting interview with Phil Manzanera discussing joining Roxy Music.

Sadly there is more chance of BPiets getting a Pulitzer Prize for writing than Little Feat getting into the R&R Hall of Fame . Their chance has gone now as these are the likely inductees in the years ahead :

Little Feat has been played by and with many...and many respect them... I don’t know any Grateful Dead....or Frank Zappa.....yet they are in... In fact there are three stories about the genesis of Little Feat. In any version, Zappa was instrumental in getting Lowell George and his new band a contract with Warner Bros. Records.
Guitarist Jimmy Page stated Little Feat was his favorite American band in a 1975 Rolling Stone interview. Rolling Stone has done various articles on them and fan polls in the magazine in the past have shown people believe they should be in...
Some of the prominent musicians and bands to play and record the music of Little Feat include Phish, The Black Crowes, The Byrds, The Bridge, Garth Brooks, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Emmylou Harris, Taylor Hicks, Ron Holloway, Keisuke Kuwata, Nicolette Larson, Nazareth, Robert Palmer, The Radiators, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, John Sebastian, Richard Shindell, Carly Simon, Mick Taylor, Van Halen, Joe Walsh, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Sam Bush, Coco Montoya, Vince Herman, Inara George, Stephen Bruton, Widespread Panic, Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule, Blackberry Smoke, Jimmy Buffett Anders Osborne and Gregg Allman.
In 2008, Little Feat reached their 20th anniversary as a once-again active band, and with just one lineup change since 1988. Jimmy Buffett has been an enthusiastic booster of the band for many years and his private record label was partnered with Feat's Hot Tomato Records to produce the CD Join the Band. Released in mid-August 2008, the album features collaborations with Buffett, Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Bob Seger, Béla Fleck, Brooks & Dunn, Chris Robinson (Black Crowes), Vince Gill, Mike Gordon (Phish), and Inara George.
Little Feat's songs "Sailin' Shoes" and "Fat Man in the Bathtub" were featured prominently in the 2010 Edward Norton film Leaves of Grass.
Please note that I am writing this out of regard for the opinion of someone I know who thinks the band merits a place there..and I can tell a Little Frst song more readily than some of the acts who have made it....
Woulda coulda shoulda gone to the Zombies show. Basically the same seats as in the avatar. They broke up because the lead singer Colin Blunstone had stage fright. They were on CBS recently and sounded good. It seems he hasn't sung since the break up so he sounded great. I was really kicking myself. It was a Wednesday show which screws with work so that was the main reason we said no. I love Ron Argent.
Saw Chicken Legs right down the road, Painters Mill. Unfortunately the place burned down in an attempted burglary. It was about a 15000 seat arena with rotating stage. Saw Crack there a few times, Styx, Climax blues band, others.
