Miles Davis isn't rock either (nor are the hip hop acts), but he's inducted. I see no reason why Coltrane and Sinatra especially aren't in the Hall.
I think it's because Miles dabbled a bit in jazz-rock crossovers like "Bitches Brew," while the other two were known rock haters.

Man it is straight up crazy that Judas Priest and Motorhead aren't already in, and to a lesser extent Thin Lizzy and T. Rex. All classic rock radio staples!
