Re: Neil Peart
in reality, the "main" reason Rush hasn't been elected into the R&RHoF is because of their refusal to conform to the powers that be and become "radio friendly" with their music.
In other words, Rush will NEVER become a "Top 40" band. And that's what the "powers that be", at the HOF look for in a band. This, by the way, is what's "rediculous". And a very shallow way of determining a HOF worthy band or act. But I've known this for a number of years now. I believe it was first mentioned by Alex Lifeson in an interview 'bout 10 years ago or so. And it certainly makes sense.
Rush has ALWAYS been about their fans. Not the music industry moguls that influence the HOF.
And that's a shame. :-(
