ASV Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: First Inductee
By overwhelming choice, via the people. Testify:
- Their 'Chronicles' album was one of the first my children, ages 17 to 21, stole from my collection. I think that says something about their talent.
- the 2112 Overture left an impression on me
- I think they rock, man
- "Trees" pretty much says it all. It was a monumental piece of expression (even if it didn't get much airplay).
- Jews rock.
- They’ve beaten psoriasis, arthritis and hearing loss and still rocked out with their largest crowd ever just two years ago.
- .... the move where the lights blinked off for a moment and when they came back up they had new guitars,not missing a beat.
- I'm delighted to see them be the first inductees into the ASV R&R HoF, and the snooty "rock critic" crowd can suck on that like a sour persimmon.
- The first rock band where the drummer could be considered a musician
- I love Rush because they are the antithesis of the Def Leppard "how many times can we make Pyromania before people notice" syndrome
And there you have it.
I'm not sure how to proceed from here. Should I do genres? Years? Just hold it up to a vote? Go with a choice of my own? Who should the next inductee be?
