I have long given up on The Mothers getting inducted (my perennial whine). But it ought to happen. Carole King was more prolific than anyone else on this list. And that “Tapestry” just turned 50 certainly gives her nod some heft. Dionne Warwick was one of Burt Bacharach’s greatest finds whose list of hits reads longer than some legislation does. And, New York Dolls is the most rock & roll thing on this list and should be a no-brainer vote.
