I agree with you ED....RUSH should have been in the Hall of Fame A Long..Long...Long...Time Ago...
I agree; great list! We just saw Deep Purple in concert too. :-D Steppenwolf, one of my favourite bands of ALL time is completely underrated, IMO. The Small Faces with Steve Marriot were fascinating. Can't say enough about the Moody Blues and their influence either, (another one of my all time favourite bands).
Also think Heart should be in there. They were nominated last year, but, not chosen.
Biggest one is Rush - i'm still astounded they aren't in it! Here are others that should be in it:
Emerson, Lake, & Palmer
The Small Faces
Faces/Small Faces made it. Heart didn't, they should have.
Totally agree about Heart! Glad to know Faces/Small Faces got in.
Yeah....DEEP PURPLE....And RAINBOW for sure.....
Marshall Tucker Band
Blue Oyster Cult
Grand Funk Railroad
Danny and the Juniors
The Winter Brothers
The Doobie Brothers
I could go on but will stop here.
I agree with all of those!
