ROCK HALL 2015 - OUR PITCH FOR LINK

images
If you can tell the future by the past, the announcements for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees for the Class of 2015 should be sometime in mid / late October. Rumors on the Internet are that the Nominating Committee met a couple weeks ago, so the announcement could come at anytime.

After over ten years of letters and petitions, I had all but given up on Link Wray ever being recognized. I was floored when the fine folks at
FUTURE ROCK LEGENDS let me know (a few hours before the official announcement, no less...) that Link was finally nominated for the Class of 2014. But as everyone knows, he didn’t make the cut.

Link Wray has been eligible for induction for 30 years. Heavy metal, punk rock, surf, garage, grunge...it all started with Link Wray. Many rock fans and critics think he should have been inducted ages ago. But let’s not look backward, let’s look forward...to this year’s nominations.

If you are a member of the Nominating or Induction Committee and came across this website looking for information on Link Wray - read “LINK WRAY - 365 DAYS IN REVIEW” and the opening page of this website. You can find them
here. In two short pages you can read the reasons why Link Wray is a worthy nominee...a worthy inductee....for the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Listed below are the members of the 2014 Rock Hall Nominating Committee. In all likelihood, they are on the 2015 Committee. These are the folks that nominated him last year, so if you have the urge to contact them - BE NICE and THANK them for recognizing Link Wray and his contribution to rock and roll.

Make 2015 the year to
THINK LINK!
