For sure. Same with The Meters.
The Rock Hall process involves consideration for performers, as well as early influencers. Sister Rosetta is cited as an influence by Elvis, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, and others.

The Meters have been cited as the originators of the funk sound from the 60s and played as the backing band for Robert Palmer and Dr. John.

Link Wray is said to have influenced the likes of Iggy Pop and Neil Young.


Not really known as hit makers or performers, but they would qualify as early influencers under the Rock Hall rules.
