    I noticed there are at least a few Skynyrd fans on this forum so here is something for you. I found this petition started by Charlie Daniels to get Lynyrd Skynyrd inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I know there have been several other petitions in the past, maybe if they can get enough signatures on this one it will finally get them inducted into the Hall where they belong.

    You can read and sign the petition at this link:

    Here are some good articles on the band and inducting them into the Hall of Fame:

    I believe Rascal Flatts was also on the same episode and their career is at a all time high right now. The bands go on that show to back up the finalists. Bo Bice performed some Skynyrd songs, says they are his hero's, so the show gets them to perform for the finale episode. I'm not a Idol watcher, but I did watch it because of Bo Bice and Skynyrd.

    2006 Rock Hall nominees announced
    Friday, September 16, 2005

    Miles Davis could be headed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, even if rock 'n' roll wasn't his claim to fame.

    The late jazz legend has been nominated for induction into the Rock Hall next year, along with singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, new-wave group Blondie, British Invasion faves the Dave Clark Five and a dozen other far-flung performers.

    Besides those aforementioned artists, other first-time nominees on the latest Rock Hall ballot include the Sir Douglas Quintet and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

    Black Sabbath, the quintessential heavy-metal group led by Ozzy Osbourne, received its eighth nomination.

    Also in the running again after being snubbed in the past are John Mellencamp, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the J. Geils Band, the Stooges, the Patti Smith Group, the Sex Pistols, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Chic and Joe Tex.

    "It's probably the most eclectic list we've ever had," says Terry Stewart, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. He also sits on the hall's nominating committee.

    The 2006 induction ceremony will be held in New York City, Stewart says. Details have not been announced.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, based in New York, oversees the induction process. Artists are eligible 25 years after the release of their first recording.

    Nominees are chosen by a committee of record company executives, music historians and journalists. Ballots are mailed to an international pool of 750 voters, including previous inductees and other members of the music industry.

    The five to seven nominees who receive the most votes are inducted. Finalists typically are announced in November or December.
