About Time

NY Daily News: In a quiet move that will draw some applause and likely raise a few further questions, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced Thursday it will induct the backup groups for six previous solo inductees.

The six groups include the Famous Flames, who backed 1986 inductee James Brown; the Crickets, who backed 1986 inductee Buddy Holly; the Comets, who backed 1987 inductee Bill Haley; the Miracles, who backed 1987 inductee Smokey Robinson; the Midnighters, who backed 1990 inductee Hank Ballard; and the Blue Caps, who backed 1998 inductee Gene Vincent.
