Hall Of Fame Soul Legends The "5" Royales Release "Think" Remastered Collection

During his induction speech, Booker T. & the M.G.'s guitarist Steve Cropper argued that "they're long overdue for this kind of worldwide acclaim," and family members of the original five-piece (John Tanner, Eugene Tanner, Lowman Pauling, Jimmy Moore and Obadiah Carter, all of whom have died) spoke of what the honor would have meant to each one. Fred Tanner, brother of Eugene and John, used his time onstage to stress that the music lives on even if its creators do not.


In an interview with Rolling Stone following the induction, he spoke about the "5" Royales' musical legacy and how this "whirlwind" week has doubled as something of a family reunion.
