As 2013 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the members of Rush are permitted to vote for who they think should get inducted each year. The nominees for the class of 2016 were announced back in early October and the final group of inductees will be revealed later this month. St. Louis radio station KSHE 95 recently spoke with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson and asked them who they are voting for:

... [Geddy and Alex] were both surprised to learn that one of this year's nominees, Chicago, aren't already in. Geddy says, "Great band. We all listened to those early CTA [Chicago Transit Authority] records." And Alex adds that they were very "influential." Asked who he'll vote for, Geddy said, "Yes and Deep Purple 100 percent." ...

Other notable '70s-era rock acts that were nominated this year include Cheap Trick, The Cars and Steve Miller. Thanks to Travis B for the heads up.
