What do the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Comets[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Crickets[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Miracles[/lastfm] have in common?  We know they are all backing groups for legendary singers.  But, they share yet another common thread.  Do you know what it is?

Those are three of six groups that were NOT inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame along with their lead singers!

  • Comets / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bill Haley[/lastfm]
  • Crickets / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Buddy Holly[/lastfm]
  • Miracles / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Smokey Robinson[/lastfm]
  • [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Famous Flames[/lastfm] / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]James Brown[/lastfm]
  • [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Midnighters[/lastfm] / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Hank Ballard[/lastfm]
  • [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Blue Caps[/lastfm] / [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Gene Vincent[/lastfm]

[photogallerylink id=84427 align=right]The HOF has finally admitted their oversight and will induct each of the six bands during this year’s ceremony.

According to Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame President/CEO Joel Peresman, “As part of our mission to recognize the most impactful, innovative and influential artists in rock, the committee brought forth these six groups that belong in the Hall of Fame.”
