Rush was nominated for the R&R HoF. I'm sort of sad as hearing the annual wailing and gnashing of teeth from the jilted Rush fans has become a sign of the changing of the seasons as surely as fall foilage.

I was going to post this exact thread- Hell Has frozen- I can't believe they finally caved in on it. What a bunch of D bags to wait soo long to nominate the Greatest Band of all Time!! Rush should have been 1st ballot with Zep, beatles, Who, Stones and Elvis.

The New Tour is F N awesome too!! They have Never played better!! Clockwork is their Best CD in devades as well!!

Not only Rush but Deep Purple is finally nominated.

How the hell could Deep Purple, one of THE most influential and popular bands in rock history NOT be in the Rock & Roll HOF?

They should be in for "Smoke on the Water" alone.

About freaking time. I mean why would you want to nominate a band that still has all its original members (yes I know that Neil Pert was the second drummer for Rush) and still sell out arenas?!?

Now lets get Deep Purple, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden on the ballot!!!

Rush somehow pissed off R S owner Jan back in the 70's and the little freak holds a grudge. He is alson the owner of hof.

I think Werner has a deep seeded hate of prog rock seeing how Yes is not in the RROF and it's taken this long to get Rush on the ballot.

Wow, that's quite a list! I voted for Rush, Deep Purple, Albert King and The Meters.

I can't believe that all of those bands are missing.

I would have voted for Heart but the others are more important and there's no way I could vote for Joan Jett (who is awesome) before Heart.

How can a band be in the hof when they only have one song?

The Rock and Roll HOF is the worst HOF out there. How can you explain Abba being in with all the groups they've excluded? You have groups in there because they had someone famous before they hit it big and a ton of groups nobody even remembers. When will the guy who sang the Pina Colada song get elected? They're even putting in the backup bands for singers. Can anyone name a member of the the Crickets?

Rush, Deep Purple (how in the world are they not in yet), Albert King.

Joan Jett?

Looks like they'll let anybody in now. Hell, I'll probably be in there in another fifteen years or so.

As influential as Maiden and Deep Purple are, and they aren't in there? That's absurd.

Grats to Rush on making the bigs with the likes of Donna Summer, Public Enemy, and NWA. Truly rock's royalty.

It's Rolling Stone's "Hall of Fame", meaning Jan Wenner.

Anyone he personally had issue with is either on a waiting list or waiting a long, long time, ala Rush, Deep Purple, Heart, Albert King, etc.

Freddie King? It took 26 years to induct Freddie King?

Absurd.

Two things I've got going for me though are that I know Albert King isn't a female and I have a sense of humor.

:) Thanks. I actually like Rush, but I'm not nearly the huge fan that so many around here are so I was just giving you guys a little :Poke:
