See I think Stevie does deserve to be inducted as a solo artist. While Fleetwood Mac certainly made her a star, it's her solo career that proved her worth. Having successful solo albums and hits showed that she didn't necessarily need Fleetwood Mac to be a star. More importantly, I believe the success of Stevie's solo career proves that a woman can be successful in rock. Stevie emerged in a time where rock was considered a man's genre. Many people doubted her during the making of Bella Donna but it's sucess shows that Stevie is so much more than just a girl draped in chiffon twirling on stage. She has true songwriting talent and a voice that is instantly recognizable. Also, she's be able to remain relevant even today and has inspired generations of new music fans. This all contributes to her iconic status that certainly proves her to be a successful and inspiring person in rock and roll history.

Cool

Plus how could the "Queen of Rock" (as dubbed by Rolling Stone Magazine) not be in the HOF as an individual entity?

Hot 100 Turns 60! The Top 60 Female Artists of All-Time, From Madonna to Mariah Carey & More
Madonna, Mariah & Janet Jackson rank at Nos. 1, 2 & 3, respectively.

As we celebrate the Billboard Hot 100's 60th anniversary, Billboard looks at the top-performing solo female artists in the chart's history, dating to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

With 57 Hot 100 entries and 12 No. 1s, Madonna rules as the chart's all-time top female artist. The pop icon also lands seven songs in the Hot 100 all-time top 600 songs recap, led by her first No. 1, "Like a Virgin," which spent six weeks atop the Hot 100 beginning on Dec. 22, 1984. Madonna holds the record for the most Hot 100 top 10s among all acts: 38.

Mariah Carey ranks at No. 2, powered by her 18 Hot 100 No. 1s, the most among soloists, as well as the most cumulative weeks at No. 1 (79) among all acts.

Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and Rihanna, the lattermost having landed 14 Hot 100 No. 1s (dating to her 2005 debut), the third-best sum in the chart's history, round out the top five.

Further in the top 10 are two other artists whose chart careers began in the 2000s: Taylor Swift (No. 8) and Katy Perry (No. 9).

Here's a look at the top-performing solo female artists over the Hot 100's first 60 years.

60. Juice Newton

59. Carole King

58. Stevie Nicks

57. Amy Grant

56. Missy Elliott

24. Linda Ronstadt

23. Kelly Clarkson

22. Alicia Keys

2. Mariah Carey

1. Madonna


The Top 60 Female Artists of All-Time on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking is based on weekly performance on the Hot 100 from its Aug. 4, 1958, inception through July 21, 2018. All songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with cumulative weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates over various periods. Artists are then ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above, of all their Hot 100 chart entries.

^Interesting, thanks for that. Surprised that Joan Jett is not in the top 60 (and I wonder if this is because she was part of a band, "Joan Jett and the Blackhearts"). I'm also surprised to see Debbie Gibson so high on the list, as she had two big albums, a third not-so-big one and then disappeared fairly quickly thereafter. (Side note: where is Tiffany? I thought her sales mirrored Debbie's almost exactly and at the same time.)

The lesson gleaned overall is that Pop (whether it's straight pop, pop/R&B, dance-pop or what have you) SELLS. In the top 20, the closest we get to a rock artist is #16 Cher (whose biggest hits were dance), #17 P!nk (somewhat the same) and #19 Lady Gaga (definitely the same). Artists who really resided in the genre of rock are few and farther down the list.

Stevie is also one of the ONLY artists to be in a huge, superstar band and concurrently have a huge solo career without leaving her original band. Who else has done that?

One thing to consider is that the list doesn't include charting on Rock Radio, which Stevie ranks high, including several #1 songs. Another interesting thing is many of these artists high on the list, aren't ranked as high on Album sales. Olivia . This list is pretty interesting. Olivia Newton-John ranks #6! Pretty impressive. She certainly had a long 10 year run on top 40 radio, and to still rank this high after all these years is amazing! Her last top 20 hit was "Soul Kiss," in 1985.

Don Henley did his solo career while the Eagles were broken up.
Destiny's Child broke up after Beyonce launched her solo career.

Also in Tom Petty's case his 3 solo albums were nominally under his name but truthfully it featured the Heartbreakers as a backup band minus Stan Lynch that left the band.
I'm not sure if even CSN&Y qualify, but No Doubt disbanded sometimes after Gwen Stefani's success with her solo career (if I remember well they've gotten back together a few years ago?).
However I don't know if it's the only one but surely Stevie is one of the few who somehow managed to juggle between her solo and band careers with alternate fortune.
