Can someone explain to me why Jackson Browne is in the Hall of Fame?

Okay ZZ- Top sure I can see that (even if they did sellout)
Prince- sure I can see that
Bob Seger- as much as I can't stand his music I can still see that
George Harrison- What in the hell took so long?

But Jackson Browne? I don't care if "The Boss" did introduce him he gets in for 4 songs and hanging around with the Eagles and being "sexy"?

Browne co-wrote "Take it Easy" for the Eagles, then was successful on his own with "Doctor My Eyes," "The Pretender" and "Running on Empty," chronicling the turn of the 1960s utopian dream into the cynical '70s.

The "No Nukes" concert organizer has mixed the political with the personal throughout his career.

"I want to thank you for allowing me to put my personal politics in my songs," he said. "Music is a very empowering thing. I'm thankful for having had a lifetime doing it. Thank you for this job."
