Nile asks why Todd not in RHOF

Nile Rogers in the Plain Dealer -

“I say to myself, who has had huge influences on people?” he said. “I think about how come there hasn’t been more psychedelic bands in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I don’t quite get that. These bands had a huge influence on the music of today, and they’re sort of underrepresented.” 

Rodgers said he feels particularly bad that nominee Todd Rundgren, who received the third-most votes in the Rock Hall’s own fan balloting, was overlooked.

“I feel really weird about that one,” he said. “Not just because I know him, but people don’t understand that Todd Rundgren is an absolute genius."
