Finally....Rock Hall of Fame!

Just saw they finally got their heads screwed on right an elected Yes to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Nice, but many years too late, and underscores a broken system.

I'm sure Chris is smiling up there!

Glad to read this. 8)

I did see Yes at the R&RHOF&M on August 6, 2013. :D

Although the Rock Hall Of Fame has no credibility (thanks to swine like Jann Wenner), it is still GREAT to see YES finally get in!!!!!!!! :D Long, long overdue!!!!!!!!!!! Kudos to ELO for getting in as well!!!!!!!!

Yes, despite the frustration with the apparent politics of their choices and the delay of getting Yes in, I am pleased to see them get in.

It will be fascinating to see who shows up to the induction (no Wakey apparently) and to see who plays.

I just will never understand how who is there and who isn't there is determined. I am happy they are making it there. Would have been nicer if that had happened before members and former members started passing away.

Yes from all accounts, Chris Squire really did want to see the band inducted.
And by the way, Wakeman has reversed his decision and now says he will attend (ostensibly because Squire's wife will receive his award).

I'm so glad this has finally happened, but just wish it could've occurred while Chris was still around.
I don't wish to offend anyone by naming names, but I just don't get the order of the inductees, or for that matter why some were even inducted at all!
I'm sure they can't please everyone though, and I do believe that Chris will be attending the ceremony...
