Default Krupa Inducted Into Down Beat Readers Poll Hall of Fame

Krupa Inducted Into Down Beat Readers Poll Hall of Fame

SKF NOTE: I am surprised Down Beat gave such little fanfare to its readers voting Gene Krupa into DB‘s Hall of Fame. Krupa was still alive in December 1972. He died in October 1973. Perhaps DB editor’s felt Krupa’s win was nothing more than a sign of the times, with “musical categories…in a state of flux.”

Krupa certainly deserved the Hall of Fame honor.

I loved the old definition of pop music....you had Zappa, McLoughlin in there. Good times.

That old definition (anything "popular" rather than a specific style) makes so much more sense.

It seems to me like a bad idea to have a hall of fame vote that includes every kind of musician associated with every kind of musical genre.
