Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to Induct Buddy Holly’s Crickets [VIDEO]

YouTube

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is inducting the backup bands of six people who are already in the Hall. The inductees include Buddy Holly’s Crickets, Bill Haley’s Comets, Smokey Robinson’s Miracles, James Brown’s Famous Flames, Hank Ballard’s Midnighters and Gene Vincent’s Blue Caps.

Obviously, the standout (left out?) here will be the Crickets. Buddy was inducted in 1986 and his famous band is just now getting the credit they deserve.

The induction will happen at the April ceremony in Cleveland. New inductees this year include  the Beastie Boys, Donovan, Guns N’ Roses, Laura Nyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Small Faces/The Faces, Freddie King, Don Kirshner, Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns.
