To become a great touring band you have to cut out the amateurs. It sucks personality wise, but they weren't great players. You can see who it payed off for in the end. Billy should have never teamed up with Mike, Nicole, Lisa, Jeff, Ginger at his and Jimmy's level. Stuff like that is what separates Dave from Billy. Plus hiring real artists and professionals. Do you think Dave would ever work with a Linda Strawberry?
I agree with just about everything you have said here, but why do you lump in Nicole, Lisa, Jeff, and Ginger with Mike Byrne? I thought all those other musicians have/do a good job. In particular, I would actually say Ginger was the best fit for the band after D'arcy in regards of playing ability mixed with her ability to nail the Smashing Pumpkins bass sound.

I did noticed you did not mention Jack Bates because he remains the best of the band's history!

SP absolutely does deserve to be in the HoF, and they will eventually.

I personally think the FF suck, but am not one bit surprised they are in the HoF before SP. While Grohl and crew have been grinding away making huge rock albums and selling out arenas, Billy has been spewing conspiracy theory bullshit on Alex Jones, hawking his pathetic backyard wrestling league, doing daily diatribes on Instagram Live about topics he has no qualifications to speak about, and supporting no-name artists like Sierra Swan and Linda Strawberry.

After all that, are you really surprised nobody give a shit about SP right now?

And let's not forget SP was completely omitted on the Chicago episode of Sonic Highways. Totally Inexcusable

They did focus on pre-90s music scene, didn’t they? the blues up to the ‘70s-‘80s.

Yeaaaaah, most attention Billy got for his music in last 20 years was when 0pn roasted his modular noodlings and it got reported as news. I don't think HOF is coming up any time soon.

Ginger is about the only bassist I have ever enjoyed with the band. I wish she would have stuck around longer.

This thread has been probably the most non-dysfunctional and coherent thread netphoria has had in the past twenty years. There’s actual conversation, well thought out statements and pure discussion without anyone throwing a tantrum, making fun or bullying anyone, or using terms like poopie, balls, or cooter, and nary an insult of anyone’s mom or dad. Back in the day someone would have posted a trick link to the goatse guy by now. Well done netphoria! This thread is HOF worthy!

People make fun of Billy's voice, but I can not stand Grohl's shouting. It does nothing for me. He's never angry he's just shouting on every song. LEARRRNING TO FUUCKK AGAAIHHHN.

Terrible. Plus they have no tunes.

Agree tbh. Except:

Monkey Wrench
Learn to Fly
Everlong
Breakout
My Hero
All My Life
Times Like These
DOA
Cold Day in the Sun

So wait, no I disagree, they had tunes in the early days.

Just listened to My Poor Brain with Goldsmith on drums. It's an improvement in my opinion. He doesn't hit the drums quite as fast as Dave, but that is actually giving the song more dimensionality. Kind of like how Billy said the way D'Arcy played bass was the magic touch for the pumpkin swim.

SP will never be in the HoF and do not deserve it. They released two huge albums. So did Collective Soul.

SP has sold around the same amount of records as The Cure and they are in. It’s not just about sales.

SP will get in, but likely in a slower year. Those “two huge albums” were immensely influential to a generation of musicians. That’s the same argument people are making for Devo to get in and they have just one platinum album and one gold album.

People on this forum that think SP will never get in are just factoring in the bad taste many of us have here from Billy’s past shitty behavior. Most people don’t know or care about post 2000’s SP but have strong nostalgic feelings for Today, Disarm, BWBW, Zero, and Tonight Tonight.

Once the smoke fades and people can look at the impact SP had on a generation without Billy’s mouth tainting it, it’s easier for the voters to put them in.
