Geoffrey Rush, the Australian actor? He doesn't strike me as very rock 'n' roll.

No, the Canadian rock band from the last century.

Quote:
This band burst onto the scene in 1976 with a 20-minute-long piece called 2112, about some dork living in a future socialist dystopia whose leaders not only pick out what health insurance you have but tell you what art to like. This dork finds an old guitar, shows it to the socialist leader, then goes off and . . . kills himself because the leader smashes the guitar. What the heck? Who in their right mind puts a story like that to rock?

I think the song "Take Off" is what pushed them over the top to get in.

Rush created "2112". This year is 2012. Coincidence?

Or their fellow Canadians Helix. Ahh Helix, haven't thought of them at least as long as rush... I think I may still have that cassette around here somewhere. "No rest for the wicked" it's very def leopard-y.

Does the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame actually mean anything? I didn't think people cared.

2013 nominees
The 2013 nominees were announced on October 4, 2012. The induction ceremony will be held April 18, 2013 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. For the first time there will be a "fan's ballot". Fans can vote in an online poll at the web site for Rolling Stone magazine. The top five choices will be put on a ballot that will be considered alongside the choices made by the other 600 voters.

How about a little informal CC Poll
Poll

Albert King (first nomination)
Chic (seventh nomination)
Deep Purple (first nomination)
Donna Summer (fifth nomination)

I'm putting my money on Rush Limbaugh! He RAWKS!
hehe

Anyway, thanks for sharing. I had no idea that Rush has been snubbed for so many years by the so-called Rock and roll hall of fame!
I saw them play live 2 or 3 years ago here in Chicago. The Red Barchetta song RAWKS!
