Bob Seger & Gordon Lightfoot

 

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Seger[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Gordon Lightfoot[/lastfm].  Now, THERE’S a concert I would pay good money to see!

[photogallerylink id=87618 align=left]While these two superstars may not be touring together, they just might be performing together very soon!

Bob and Gordon are just two of the names on this year’s list of inductees to the Songwriters Hall of Fame!  Did you know that Gordon Lightfoot’s lyrics have been sung by legends like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Dylan[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elvis Presley[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Barbra Streisand[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Peter Paul and Mary[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Richie Havens[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Glen Campbell[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Anne Murray[/lastfm]?

I sure hope they’ll both perform at the induction ceremony on June 14th.

Who else is joining the HOF this year?

  • [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jim Steinman[/lastfm], who wrote the songs on [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Meat Loaf[/lastfm]‘s Bat Out of Hell, as well as “Total Eclipse of the Heart” for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bonnie Tyler[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Air Supply[/lastfm]‘s “Making Love Out of Nothing at All.”
  • Don Schlitz, the Nashville tunesmith who wrote “The Gambler” for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kenny Rogers[/lastfm] and has since penned 24 songs that topped the country charts.
  • The team of Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, who made their mark with the score for The Fantastiks, the longest running musical of all time.

Here’s one of my favorite induction videos from the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.  I think you’ll like it, too!  Ever hard of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Billy Joel[/lastfm]?
