As much as I'd like to see the band back together, so to speak, I think it would be a little awkward at this point for the original four to try to perform at the HOF show. Too much time has passed, too much water under the bridge. If it were the "reunion" era it would be a different story.
I think Simmons and Stanley are entertainment and marketing geniuses. They turned what might have been just another mediocre "here today, gone tomorrow" band into an industry
that has lasted 40 years. Regardless of their musical talent, that to me is an enormous feat.
It would be cool to have the original four, with Thayer and Singer, in the audience while a group of musicians who were influenced by the band play a medley of the hits.
