Osmonds Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

459 Signatures Goal: 500

Being a fan of the Osmonds, I think it\'s only fair to say that I think they deserve a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of fame. The family has been in the business since the early 60\'s when they guest starred on the Andy Williams show. They were an instant hit and ended up becoming regulars. In the 70\'s they became one of the biggest teen idols selling millions of records all over the world and performed to sell out concerts. They\'ve done everything from guest starring on variety shows to performing for the Queen of England to owning their own TV studio. The Osmond brothers had success directing and producing T.V shows including their own, i.e., Donny & Marie Variety show which ran for 4 seasons in the 70\'s and Donny & Marie where the executive producers on the Donny & Marie Talk Show in the 90\'s. Jimmy became a successful business man and bought a theater in Branson Mo. Here the Osmond Brothers were voted the top performing group a few years in a row. Marie had her own syndicated radio show that ran for a while and is a successful business woman selling her own porcelain dolls. Donny performed in the long running stage show of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. He recently hit the charts again with his hit single Breeze on By. All of the brothers are still performing today with the exception of Alan who had to quit due to MS. But still remains active by working on the Osmonds Official website at www.osmond.com and has started his own ISP service. In 2003 the family received their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They\'ve accomplished so much and have been around for almost 50 years! How many other performers can say that

    I’m a 45 yr. old male and only recently discovered the Osmond’s 1972 “Crazy Horses” album just this year. I have to say, this is now one of my all-time favorite rock records!I knew of a few of their hits, but was only exposed (thru my older sisters) to some Donny Osmond singles and “The Plan” album as a child. BTW “The Plan” is incredible and one of my most beloved records.
    After hearing “Crazy Horses” for the first time forty plus years after it was recorded, I’m amazed how timeless and modernistic much of it sounds. For instance, there are cool keyboard/synth ‘trills’ reminiscent to 80’s music in the song “We All Fall Down” and this was a decade before. Interesting. Donny Osmond was quite the keyboardist. He also “scratches” out (on his Yamaha YC-30’s portamento strip) the “neighing horse” sound on the Crazy Horses title track. All over the album you’ll hear glimpses of what rock, pop, blues, and r&b would become in the future. These guys were innovative and ahead of their time on “Crazy Hoses” and even “The Plan”.
    Some of The Osmond’s favorite artists include Steve Wonder, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin. My guess is that some of the songs on Crazy Horses just might be homages to these musicians, and if so, kudos to them for demonstrating their abilities to hone in on a particular genre and nail it…with their own original song. Brilliant.
    The Crazy Horses album truly is a rock n roll gem. I think the major reason this album did not explode onto rock territory (although it was No. 14 on Billboard) is twofold…
    (1) - Osmond fans were always a million “bubble-gum pop” young tween girls (I mean look how cute these guys were!) They themselves were in their teens and early twenties when they released Crazy Horses and wanted to be accepted by their peers and deemed rock artists. What young male artist wouldn’t?? But as we know unfortunately in the music industry, you can’t control what kind of fans you get. As in their case they were just too good-looking and clean-cut…so that drew the girls in big time. Some things could be worse ;)
    (2)- The religious factor. Yes the boys are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), but who cares?!?! There had always been a bias toward them because of that (now that’s “Crazy!”) I mean, shouldn’t Music be about Music and not what religion you are? These guys created great songs…so let’s enjoy the music. Yeah “The Plan” was a sharing of their beliefs thru music, but it wasn’t even threatening or preachy and was a beautiful work. Any person whether atheist or whatever would appreciate the music and message in The Plan…there’s something for everyone.
    ROCK ON OSMONDS!!

    There would be no New KIds, no Backstreet Boys, no Justin Bieber without these guys beginning it all...When Joe Elliot of Def Lepard says that he used to carry Crazy Horses in a paper bag so no one knew that he loved this album...the Osmonds, not Donny, not Marie, not Jimmy, but the most underrated songwriters and bands, the Osmonds should be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and get the damned respect they deserve.

    The Osmonds belong in the Hall of Fame based on songs that they wrote. Listen to the songs that they wrote and arranged and that will be proof enough that they belong in their.
