Warning: Sting looms in the distance

So smooth, so classic
Gordie rocks
Believe it or not, Sting has been eligible to get into the Rock Hall since 2007. What's more unbelievable is that the smug judges (all of whom undoubtedly have "Ten Summoner's Tales" on their iPod) haven't rubber stamped him in yet. Laugh if you want, but the threat is real: There's even an online petition to get him voted in.

There has to be a million other solo artists worthy of induction before the soft-tossing bassist. I'm pretty sure I can speak for at least one other CDNR staffer when I say the great Don Henley should get in before Sting. Top notch drummer, top notch singer, SINGS WHILE HE DRUMS, and, hey, "The End of the Innocence." What else do I have to say?

We put up a little poll on the right to see where the Stingster matches up against peers Henley and Phil Collins. Let your voice be heard.
