keepitcherry: Rush should have been a band without a vocalist. Geddy Lee prevented me from ever getting into that band he sounds like a high pitched woman.


The real irony is that Lee's voice is now much *better* than it was in the 2112 and Moving Pictures days. He's had to lower his range and it fits the music better.

Took my 11-year-old son with me to see them last October. They're all about 60 and have more stage energy than most modern bands.

I think the fact that Madonna got inducted into it, not even taking into account that it was well before Albert King or Rush, should tell you all you need to know about this so-called "Hall of Fame".

iron_city_ap: I see Subby's knowledge of John Mayer's catalog is limited to what is played on pop radio.

He uses the pop crap to keep the bank account full so he can spend time doing what he really enjoys. We should all be so fortunate.


Sir Michael Caine does that same thing with movies.

Proof that this sanctimonious bs award is a shell game with true music ability. If it'd been otherwise, RUSH would've been inducted decades ago...

No, you're thinking of Dream Theater.

Couple of points:

John Mayer is a fantastic guitarist, even if his output isnt for most FARKers (heartbreak warfare is a good album)

Rush does not do 'guitar god' wankery, but there's plenty of wankery involved nontheless. I didnt like em till I saw them live, and I stand by that.

Dave Grohl (and the FF) are not a 'weaksauce' band, even though they are over exposed. They have good, solid songs. Also people who say 'weaksauce' are weaksauce.

Subby, that's "future double-inductee Dave Grohl" to you.

/Pat Smear as well if they remember he was in Nirvana towards the end

Well Dave Grohl has his caffeinated fingers in every cookie jar in the music industry, so this doesn't really surprise me.

Being technically proficient =/= true music ability

/Rush has maybe 4-5 great songs
//the rest is just boring guitar-god masturbatory wank material

This more your speed?

Sorry to disappoint you, but I was born well after the time that:

1. Wham was still popular
2. "You don't like the same music as me so you're GAY!!!" jokes were still used by people older than 12


Huh. That's funny. I don't think I ever said you were gay. I suspect you have terrible taste in music judging by your expert analysis, but that's just my opinon.

//Yes, I am older than you

Crapping on woman? Scat the new "I love you" according to John Mayer.

The guy may be a total douche bag but he is pretty farking amazing at playing the blues. I can see why they got him. Subby must not have looked John up on youtube.

It's obvious they want to use younger musicians to bring in TV viewership in the same way they always have younger stars involved in the Kennedy Center Honors. That being said John Mayer for all his pop music is a good guitarist and has done some legit blues as the John Mayer Trio. B.B. King has invited him to play with him, that's a pretty high endorsement
