Olfin Bedwere: Geddy talks about it:

Link

I like his response when his manager called him to tell him. "I said, 'That's very nice.' "


That whole exchange was pretty classy on Lee's part. He's got a real good attitude about the whole thing.

Elbow.


/it was either them, or Greatful Dead, RickyThePenguin.


oh I love Elbow. More people should give them a listen.

OK people, "rock" in the context of the Hall is a broader use of the term, encompassing a wide variety of popular styles. Its more how the Europeeps use it. So enough of the Donna Summer outrage. Apparently you've failed to notice that induct someone along those lines EVERY FARKING YEAR.

zabadu:

Nancy divorced Cameron because "he never talked". So you know Nancy must be heard. Little Tommy Mapother the Fourth converted him to the Co$ and she couldn't stand having him try to convert her.

So---exactly how does this work? Bleach came out in 1989. Is Nirvana eligible next year for the 2014 induction because that's 25 years?

For HoF threads, the only ones more dependable than the "that's not rock" guys are Rush fans.

Gunny Highway: Glitchwerks: Gunny Highway: No DK yet? Figured.

The chances that Jello and East Bay Ray would start a fist fight at the induction is probably what's keeping them out.

This is why they should be there.


I'd pay 5 bucks to see that.

While I really can't stand Rush (Geddy Lee's voice is like fingernails down chalkboard to me) I can appreciate their musicianship and longevity...they certainly belong in the Hall.

Happy Heart made it as well. They may need to reinforce the stage for Ann's acceptance speech.

Rush fan and musician here. Like all musicians I know, don't give a single crap about whether or not Rush is in the RRHOF.

Here's to hoping they don't show up for it and shatter the illusion of integrity.


All of this. Rush doesn't need those assholes.

Don't believe they would do that, and in fact I bet they get pretty excited.

I would even say that by the time induction rolls around, I bet they begin the day with a friendly voice.

When I discovered Verve Pipe wasn't inducted this year, I prepared to go downtown and light myself on fire out of protest.  Then the guy who sold me the lighter fluid informed me they're not eligible yet.  Man, that would have been embarrassing.

I didn't know Randy Newman was dead.

Randy Newman is horrible.

Which is why they should change the name to something that doesn't imply it's a rockers only institution.

I wasn't joking. From about 1978 to 1983, Styx was the most popular Rock band in the country. They had more hits than Van Halen, and Tommy Shaw is just as good as Eddie.

Yeah, that's right, I said it.

Deep Purple being snubbed was one of the greatest sins of the RRHoF even before they admitted Rush.

Atomic Spunk: Once again, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts artists who have nothing at all to do with rock and roll music.


Yup...that is about the extent of it. Honestly, given their criteria there is no reason why Lawrence Welk and Liberace should not get inducted. Where is Beethoven? Why isn't Beethoven in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Sorry, Donna...GTFO and try the Disco Hall of sparkly Fame.
