Tull is similar, although you can argue that Aqualung enjoyed somewhat wide appeal. I personally like them, but that's hardly the test for HoF qualification.
re: Tull's wide appeal, what about a string of gold (11) and platinum (5) albums )some reaching #1 Billboard status), two #1 singles and 7 other top 10 charting singles, and 60 million albums sold? Or selling out five nights in a row at the 20k seat LA Forum?
Tull were huge in the early to mid-70s.
Tull is a closer call, no question.
Ian Anderson's schtick is easy to mock, which likely keeps them out.
probably has more to do with them being critically reviled
Very much like RUSH. It was RUSH's pestering fans that got them in.
There's some other artists out there that need this treatment to get Jann Wenner to let them in.......Priest, Maiden, Ozzy (solo) Doobies, Tull, T Rex, etc. There's plenty of others
