How can it possibly be that RUSH still isn't in the hall of fame? Sure they get those wussy juno awards, named after a pregnant teen age girl, hip she may be, but not to let them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I demand justice!

Maybe it's because the hall of fame isn't very cool.

That's really an embarrassment for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

No it isn't and if anyone recalls the voting in Rolling Stone back in the early 80s Cleveland CHEATED and that is how they got it. Should be in LA, NYC, SF, or Commerce Oklahoma.

Should have been Philadelphia, where Bandstand began!

As I recall, Cleveland was one of the key players in the 50's when rock and roll was banned from the air (meaning the DJs played the stuff anyway). The Hall is largely a joke, though. While it was great to see Queen's instruments and costumes from their News of the World tour, it was mind bogglingly next to some Britney Speares items.

The museum itself is an oversized Hard Rock Café, that charges $20 to get in, and the induction ceremony is laughable. Rush isn't in and neither is Styx - the only band to have three consecutive quadruple platinum albums.

Rush deserves it but they don't care that they're not in. They're still out there selling out arenas, not playing county fairs.

Styx isn't in? First time I saw them was the Grand Illusion Tour, best stage act I ever saw, can't believe they are not in.

Nope...no Styx, Rush, Journey, Kansas, Supertramp...I really can't think of any "prog rock" band that has made it in. Styx, anymore, is a parody of what they used to be, I've seen them a couple of times since they gave Dennis the boot and...my gawd, they lost it. Dennis, whom I've seen about five times now, has only gotten better with age.

Wow, finally watched the video after posting in the thread...I wonder how the poster got the master feed from that show. I saw the concert when it was in town in July (got to spend Canada Day with them), helluva show...I'm really looking forward to the release of the DVD.

I'll throw mine into the mix:
It's neither master feed, nor South Park...but it *is* Rush

I've seen all those bands in their prime except Rush which is still in theirs. I can see Kansas and Supertramp not being in excused as mearly successful. Journey is borderline, Styx changed music and stage acts, RUSH absolutely should be in there the same as Alice Cooper. Another group that should be in there and likely is is the NY Dolls.

I remember my first Rush concert in L.A. I went by myself and got talking to the guy next to me...it was a huge moment since I'd played the drums for 15 years at the time and my brother had met the band a dozen times, but I'd never been able to go. When the guy next to me found out it was the first time I was seeing them, his eyes went wide and he got all serious before taking my arm and going, "Dude, this is BIBLICAL."

My best friend named his son Alex (yes, my godson the highschool terrorist) after the guitar player from Rush (Rich has seen every Rush concert in San Francisco). He tried to get his wife to name the baby Gann as in Getty Alex n Neal but she wasn't biting.

The lead singer for Styx was a stand up comic before he got that gig and he was on the radio in San Francisco just as he found out he was the new singer. He said, and I doubt this was true, that he didn't want to sing the songs Dennis wrote because they were written about his wife and belonged to Dennis. They hit Reno pretty often, Styx, and I've not seen them since around 1982 but the word is that when they played with Journey and Heart that Heart blew them all off the stage.
