Article on bands overlooked by Rock Hall snubs Rush

Rush and the Rock HallThe Cleveland Plain Dealer has a feature today on bands that have been overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was prompted by plans for the Kiss Army (official Kiss fan club) to march on the Rock Hall this weekend and demand Kiss be inducted. There's also an article which discusses 12 deserving bands overlooked by the Rock Hall ... and guess who's not on the list? Rush of course. No surprise really. They also have a surveywhere you can indicate what overlooked bands should be inducted. They have a list you can choose from including the 12 bands mentioned above plus 8 others ... but still no Rush. However, you can write them in.

If you're interested, there's a good page over at Power Windows summarizing the campaign to get Rush in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There's also an online petition that's been up for quite a long time and currently has nearly 24,000 signatures (mine included).

Personally, I'm lukewarm on the whole issue of Rush and the Rock Hall; it'd be nice if they make it someday, but it really doesn't matter all that much to me. Although, since I live in Cleveland, if the Rush Army ever congregates in Cleveland and invades the Rock Hall ... I'm there. I may even join the Kiss fans this weekend - sounds like a good time. :)
