Guys: I was never a Rush fan. Sorry. But everyone’s welcome to their opinion, and Rush fans are welcome here. Petition the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, write to Jann Wenner at Rolling Stone, make your voices heard. As for Deep Purple, I have always loved “Smoke on the Water” and “Hush.” Should they be in the Rock Hall? I don’t know. Again, there are plenty of bands I think that should come before each of these outfits. But maybe one of them will make it. I’m surprised KISS fans are angrier.PS “Smoke on the Water” deserves to be in for one of the most recognizable riffs in history.
