Help Redbone get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is proposing this petition and needs all your votes :
"This letter is imploring the powers that be to consider the induction of one of rock’s greatest pioneers as the first Native American band (with Mexican roots), creators of a new genre, Native American Swamp Rock, and heavy influencers of many contemporary and descendant acts . . . Redbone: Lolly Vegas, Pat Vegas, Tony Bellamy, Peter DePoe, Arturo Perez and Butch Rillera. Where would rock ‘n’ roll be today without the Tribal Elders of Rock?”

A living band in the XXIst century
