301. Jerry Butler

Already inducted into the Hall as a member of the Impressions, Jerry Butler picked up where his former group left off and created a very solid solo career of his own. Butler’s solo career generated a long string of R&B hits, and was a big part of establishing the Chicago Soul scene. Still performing and still a huge part of Chicago, Butler has carved a solo career that could be considered Hall of Fame worthy, though the fact that he has received no nominations may indicate that the Hall feels they have paid the “Ice Man” his due.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1984   Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Chicago, IL)   Nominated In: Never   NIHOF’s Favorite Album: The Iceman Cometh (1968)   NIHOF’s Favorite Song: Hey Western Union Man (From The Iceman Cometh, 1968) {acepolls 304}
