But It's Too Late, Baby...
I got a chuckle out of this headline at the LA Times
Rush vindicated: A Rock Hall of Fame berth for Canadian rock band
Can we say the obvious here? This is a bid for
vindication of the Rock Hall of Fame, not by the RHF. By that I mean simply that Rush's absence in the RHF has become more of an embarrassment for the latter than the former. Ditto with some of the other bands not yet inducted, like the Moody Blues or Deep Purple.
I visited the RHF in 2005
; to be honest it was one of the most boring museums I have ever seen. How many sequined outfits and electric guitars can you look at before you say, enough? Jim Morrison's third grade report card was actually one of the highlights.
