Delta Posted October 23, 2016 Share Posted October 23, 2016 Ok, this a shameless plug on my part. I'm a huge Yes fan. I started listening to them in the dark ages of progressive rock. Close To the Edge got me hooked, and that was it. Since then they've had more band members than the London Symphony Orchestra. They've had their ups and downs, but to me, for the most part, they've retained their artistic integrity, which is creating new concepts in music. For the third time, they are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame candidates. I know the hall is kind of a joke, considering who's in, and whose out, but it drives me crazy to see some of my favorites not in there when many one hit wonder clowns were inducted years ago. Look at some of the other candidates for 2017. Janet Jackson? If you care, tap into the hall. You're allowed to pick 5 groups or artists. You can vote once a day through Dec. 5th. My 5 are Journey (they'll get in I'm sure), Steppenwolf (why aren't they already in?), The Cars (should get in), Kraftwerk (a German keyboard based progressive band? Not a chance). Where's the nomination for Tangerine Dream? They'll never get in either. And of course, Yes. I was thrilled last year when Deep Purple finally got in. Let's get Yes in there. They should have been in there 20 years ago. Shameless plug over. Please forgive. "Let me stand next to your fire!", Jimi Hendrix Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
