Re: Rush to be Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Maybe it would be better to just call it the Music Hall of Fame, or the Popular Music Hall of Fame.

The argument about what is rock and roll, or not, could then be dropped.

Until then...Madonna, Dionne Warwick, Donna Summer are not rock and roll by even the broadest definition.

As for whether or not it matters that Rush got in, the final analysis, no it doesn't matter. Nothing changes. But for those of us who have followed this band since we were young, there is a certain small satisfaction.

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
