489. Bobby Vee
From the musical abyss known as the era between the origin of Rock and Roll and The British Invasion, Bobby Vee was one of that era’s most successful artists. His Brill Building Pop was well crafted and although he was one of that generations “safe artists”, the songs he sang were catchy and still can generate smiles today. Had Vee survived that era (like Anka and Sedaka) he might have a better shot for induction, but if those two can’t get in what chance does Bobby Vee realistically have?
