Well, they got in. Congratualtions and I look forward to their induction.
Cool! Elliot's been a friend of mine for about 25 years or more. Great guy!
Congrats to Elliot and the boys!
Very cool and happy for Elliot and the band.....well deserved!
IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN TIME! Congrats!
Congrats! Cars and Dire Straits---both favorites!
Congratulations, Elliot. It’s a well-deserved honor.
This will be the first time someone I played in a band with gets inducted. Hal Lindes was in Dire Straits for a couple of years and worked with Knoffler on some movie scores. In 1972 I played in his band Sudden Rush, the house band at the M club in Georgetown and a few other gigs, but only when their regular drummer Jack, was...indisposed.
They were one of the main soundtracks of my youth and this recognition is way overdue!
Congratulations, Elliott! It's about time you get the formal recognition that you deserve. I've had a lot of fun learning some of the iconic solos you composed while you were in The Cars and your post Cars career. Your imagination never fails to challenge me, and keep me in in my A game.
