289. Graham Parker

Often compared to current Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Elvis Costello, Graham Parker had a career that was full of recognition but he never seemed to reach the heights he probably should have. His Pub Rock based New Wave probably should have been bigger than it was, but he was always in someone else’s shadow. With Costello in the Hall, the chance is that he will be overshadowed again.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2001   Country of Origin: United Kingdom (London, England)   Nominated In: Never   NIHOF’s Favorite Album: Squeezing Out Sparks (1979)   NIHOF’s Favorite Song: Local Girls (From Squeezing Out Sparks, 1979){acepolls 444}

      Right but wrong.
      Squeezing out Sparks was a great album but not his best. NIHOF is/are clearly reflecting sales and not listening to music.
      Parker had two albums better before and four or five since its release.
      Squeezing out Sparks was in the middle of his pack.
