RUSH Are "Honored" To Be A Nominee For The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
October 4, 2012, 2 years ago
Canadian prog rock legends RUSH have been eligible for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame since 1999, 25 years after the release of their first record in the US. The band, along with numerous others in the realm of hard rock including KISS, MOTÖRHEAD, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, THIN LIZZY, JOURNEY, JETHRO TULL, CHEAP TRICK, DEF LEPPARD and BAD COMPANY have been seriously overlooked, giving the establishment a black eye when it comes to credibility.
But bands still revel in the thoughts of being in America's "supposed" elite musical organization.
Rush comment: "We are honored to be among the nominees for this year's Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. We are especially thrilled for the many, many dedicated RUSH fans to whom this nomination is so very important."
The complete nominee list for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 are:
JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS
THE PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND
The 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Thursday, April 18, 2013. The show will be broadcast on HBO at a later date.
