    I was just thinking about this, who is the youngest member ever to be inducted into the hall of fame? Of couse i am refering to dead people. Off the top of my head i can only think of Randy Rhoades (he was inducted right?), i think he was 24 or 25.

  4. You are either joking or you are 65 years old.

    These guys were rockin' hard beginning in about 1972 when their first album came out. They had been on the Texas blues scene for many years before that. Though I don't know exactly, I would say that they all have to be over 50 by now.

    Not exactly "young" :meh:
  5. the rock n roll hall of fame is a really wierd concept to me.

    Isn't Jimi Hendrix in the Hall? He was very youny when he died, as was Buddy Holly and Richie Valenz.

    Off the top of my head, I would have to say Valenz. That guy was in his early 20's, if I remember right, when that plane crashed (worst day in rock EVER!!! IMO).
