Tuesday tunes: Male solo artists who belong in the Rock Hall of Fame

After last week’s list of female artists who belong in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, here is my list of male solo artists who are deserving of such recognition, too. Please note several of these artists are already inducted as a member of a duo or group. Those shown in bold are particularly worthy of inclusion. Keep in mind that an artist is not eligible until 25 years after the release of their debut album. Next week – bands and duos who belong in the Rock Hall of Fame.
