    KISS chumped by Rock and Roll HOF

    Kiss Dissed From Rock and Roll Hall of Fame....Again

    - It’s dancing queens over dudes in full-face makeup for this year’s list of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees with the Hall of Fame Foundation announcing Abba amongst the list of artists to join the hall of fame this year but giving Kiss the cold shoulder.

    Abba, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, The Hollies and The Stooges will all be inducted into the Hall of Fame during its 25th annual induction ceremony March 15 at the Waldorf-Astoria along with non-performers David Geffen, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weill, Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry, Jesse Stone, Mort Shuman and Otis Blackwell reports the Times.

    But first-time nominees Kiss did not make the cut proving it takes more than great stage makeup to get inducted into the pantheon of rock royalty. In all seriousness however, it’s borderline blasphemous to keep Kiss out of this ultimate rock honor; and I don’t really think a band that wears patent-leather platform boots are the kind of people the Hall of Fame Foundation can afford to keep pissing off—Kiss has been snubbed from the ceremony for the last 10 years.


    Nominees on the latest ballot who were passed over include Kiss, Donna Summer, [B]the Red Hot Chili Peppers[/B], Laura Nyro, Darlene Love, LL Cool J and the Chantels

    Until Deep Purple gets inducted, no one else should. F**k Kiss. Although they should be enshrined at some point, they're way down the list in my book.

    Agreed. While there are definitely some songs I liked from them over the past 30+ years, their body of work is really not that good. Most songs are just plain 'ol average garage stuff that my neighbor's kids play (and even do a better job at times, btw). From a concert experience perspective, I get it. Loads of fun and entertainment. Musically? Eh...

    Dude: Madonna, Dusty Springfield and Ricky Nelson are all members of the R&R HOF. Listen to that name again: Ricky Nelson. But no Deep Purple? What the f**k is that about?

    There is no Rush without Deep Purple. That said, I think Rush should have been in already.

    This list should embarrass whomever runs the sham which is called the R&R HOF, but it won't. Either you make it about rock & roll, or you don't.

    There's a reason RUSH isn't in, but I can't remember why. Something to do with
    the editor of Rolling Stone hating RUSH? Does Rolling Stone decide who's in the HOF?

    Anyway, this rumor has been around so long Rolling Stone has addressed it in their magazine..

    [B]Rush vs. Rolling Stone: A Qualitative Analysis[/B]

    Posted Jul 10, 2008 10:47 AM

    A meme has developed in certain fan circles over the past few decades: Rolling Stone hates Rush. Ever since RS ran its review of Hemispheres in 1979, we've gotten more letters from Rush fans than perhaps anyone else. Most input runs along the lines of: "RS obviously hates Rush" or "Why hasn't Rush been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" to "You suck!" So let's examine: Does Rolling Stone really hate Rush? Our scientific qualitative analysis follows.

    WHY PEOPLE THINK WE HATE RUSH:
    Nasty Comments About Geddy Lee's Voice
    Descriptions of Geddy Lee's singing in Rolling Stone have ranged from negative to borderline mean:

    • "shrill" (Presto, by Bob Mack)
    • "squeals" (A Show of Hands, by Michael Azerrad)
    • "screech" (A Show of Hands, by Michael Azerrad)
    • "keening shriek" (Power Windows, by David Fricke)
    • "stratospheric wails" (Permanent Waves, by David Fricke)
    • "unnecessarily strident" (Hemispheres, by Michael Bloom)
    • "Robert Plant-like shriek" (Permanent Waves, by David Fricke)
    • "dog-calling falsetto shriek" (Grace Under Pressure, by Kurt Loder)
    • "triumphant cry or a grating yowl" (Hemispheres, by Michael Bloom)
    • "sends his voice to the rafters through his nose" (Vapor Trails, by Richard Abowitz)
    • "congested vocals float through the songs like swamp gas" (Signals, by J.D. Considine)

    STAR RATINGS
    Notwithstanding a few bright points, Rush's albums received an average star rating of 2.4 stars in the RS reviews section. In the 2004 edition of the Rolling Stone Album Guide, Rush's albums received an average of 2.7 stars. Technically, those ratings put them somewhere between "fair" and "good" in the RS canon, which, needless to say, will not satisfy the fans at RushMessageBoard.com

    WHY WE ACTUALLY DON'T HATE RUSH:
    Positive mentions in RS reviews
    A quick survey of key Rush reviews reveals some rather complimentary language. David Fricke gave Permanent Waves a generous dose of praise, and his review of Power Windows is entirely positive. Some of the other highlights:

    • "...immaculately played techno metal..." (Presto, by Bob Mack)
    • "...the Police of power rock..." (Power Windows by David Fricke)
    • "...missing link between Yes and the Sex Pistols..." (Power Windows, by David Fricke)
    • "...a maturity that even their detractors may have to admire..." (Permanent Waves, by David Fricke)
    • "...among the very best in its genre..." (Permanent Waves, by David Fricke)
    • "...masters of every power-trio convention..." (Hemispheres, by Michael Bloom)

    This Issue's Rush Feature
    In the current issue of RS, writer Chris Norris hit the road with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart (click below to read the story). All is forgiven!
