RUSH MEMBERS HOPE FOR MORE PROG-ROCK IN HALL OF FAME

4/18/2013

The members of Rush hope that their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday night (April 18th) will pave the way for more progressive and heavy rock acts to get inside the doors. Bassist Geddy Lee said, "I hope this means other great bands like Yes will follow suit. Deep Purple was on the ballot this year, and I was hoping they'd get in with us. We wouldn't be the band we are without Deep Purple's existence."

Guitarist Alex Lifeson added that he hoped Rush's long-awaited inclusion "opens the doors for bands like the Moody Blues and King Crimson . . . it's odd to have (a Hall of Fame) where there seem to be guidelines for who's acceptable and who's not." Thursday's event will be filmed and broadcast on HBO on May 18th. (USA Today)
