I have decided to re-open the old HoF project.

Nominate you're favourite rockstars for The Pit's HoF. At 12.00 midday on sunday, nominations close, upon which the top ten musicians with the most nominations shall be put into poll in a seperate thread. The winner of that will join the HoF thread. Nominations for more elections shall be done after the elections for this round are completed. The people who are already in there are Randy Rhoads and Frank Zappa.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=30579801

This is essentially The Pit's way of showing which musicians make us who we are.
EDIT: There is now a side thread if you wish to nominate UGer's for there own seperate HoF:


Rules:

-IT HAS TO BE A PERSON NOT A BAND!
- You are only allowed to nominate someone ONCE. (Check to see who has nominated who before you nominate)
- You are also allowed to second someone elses nomination ONCE.
- Any one nomination can be seconded by multiple users.
- Any other nominations will not count.
- If any candidates have the same number of nominations, then the ones who are nominated first out of those shall be chosen, so get in there quick.
- Don't flame other people's nominations.
- Any stupid nominations e.g. yourself, Justin Bieber, other shit, WILL be discounted.
- UGer's cannot be nominated.
- If a person has been nominated twice and lost in the election both times this excludes them from being nominated again. This hasn't come into play yet.
- DON'T SPAM OTHER THREADS WITH THIS!

Those who have been candidates once. THIS LIST IS NOT OF THE MUSICIANS THAT CAN BE NOMINATED. YOU CAN NOMINATE ANYONE WITHIN REASON. All of these candidates can be nominated again. If they lose twice I will highlight them with italics:
Jon Petrucci
Devin Townsend
Claudio Sanchez
Rory Gallagher
Omar Rodriguez Lopez
Buck Dharma
Brad Paisley
Dave Mustaine
Josh Homme
Buckethead
Mark Knopfler
John Frusciante
David Gilmour
Neil Young
Myles Kennedy
Trent Reznor
Steven Wilson

I'm not sure if the list is of people who have lost twice and are ineligible?

If that's not the case, then David Gilmour. If he's not eligible, then **** this.

Steve Winwood

Good choice. Often overlooked, but fantastic musician.

Seeing him and Clapton play "Dear Mr. Fantasy" at Crossroads 2010 was the highlight of my year.

Right in front of the stage, baby

I'll second this nomination.

Nah, you can't nominate yourself. Plus I will discount ones for UGer's. Besides the ones with most amount of seconds go through.

That hardly seems fair, UG has some great, dedicated, passionate and hard-working musicians as part of our community and you'd think we'd be able to honor them in our own hall of fame.

It was designed to honor musicians outside of our bubble who have influenced us as a community. My intention was never to exclude anyone mate.

Look, its a problem I wasn't expecting. It never happened in the old threads, its just not designed for that purpose mate. I have to put a doorstop somewhere. This is the Pit, the last time it was killed by shitloads of stupid nominations, I just dont want that to happen again.

It would make sense to exclude UG people if they were just being voted for because we're the pit and we like to be stupid, but if they actually have good music, then I think they should be fair game.
