I think they should decline admission based on general principles. Rush doesn't need the hall to acknowledge their greatness. They only got nominated because the asshole admission board, who by the way has managing editor Jann Wenner, foundation director Suzan Evans, and writer Dave Marsh of Rolling Stone Magazine, (remember they said geeky Rush would never make it as a rock band, and almost killed the band financially). They treat the hall as their own private mutual admiration society, reflecting their personal tastes rather than the views of the rock world as a whole. But they have come under recent pressure due to the latest Rash of Rush related material in recent times, including their recent documentary, Rush, Beyond the Lighted Stage, which received rave reviews. Which is the only reason they are being nominated now. They are now considered a viable, commercial commodity now according to their fucked up requirements. Only when and if they remove Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Ray Orbison, Madonna, and ABBA from the hall, and induct the bands Yes, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Heart, Pat Benatar, and many others, will I then recognize it as the HALL OF SHAME. But, being all around nice guys and good people, the band will go along with the sham. But if you knew them personally, I bet they would be saying the same things I've mentioned. The hall idiots are a bunch of glad handing yes men that haven't got a clue. Rant over.

#2 - are you a drummer? is that why you'r buying this instructional transcription?

Denny Crane isn't sad, he's just joining in with the game that quite a few others play.

Don't worry about it and have a nice day :-)
