10 Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Who Never Topped Their First Album

I was watching the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony the other day. I usually don't watch a lot of made-for-TV rock and roll stuff, mainly because they try to be everything to everybody, but I couldn't resist tuning in to watch the RRHOF rectify the biggest of many head-shaking omissions from the list of inductees: Rush.

Being a Rush fan, I had to get that out of the way. But that's not the subject of this post (I'm pretty sure this isn't the way my Comp 101 teacher told me to set things up, but what the fuck). The subject is: 10 Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Who Never Topped Their Debut Album. (There ya go, teach.) Now let's talk about it.
