361. Lee Dorsey

An early Funk pioneer who did not find success in the music world until in his late 30’s, Lee Dorsey was symbolic of the Louisiana Sound. His gritty, playful voice was a perfect match for New Orleans R&B. His music showed swagger (before that was really thought of) and although he did not have as much commercial success as he may have been entitled, he could be the representative of New Orleans that the Hall is missing.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1986   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
