Rush Leads Rock Hall Fan Vote
Rush are leading the fan vote for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s class of 2013. The Canadian trio has 24.59 percent of the vote, with Deep Purple at 17.09 percent and Heart at 12.44 percent rounding out the Top 3. The online voting ends on Monday.
Of course, this doesn’t mean Rush have a shot of being inducted — the fan vote counts as just one of the more than 600 ballots collected by the Hall. The other acts nominated are Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Deep Purple, Heart, Albert King, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Kraftwerk, Procol Harum, N.W.A., The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Meters, The Marvelettes and Chic.
The Rock Hall’s class of 2013 will be announced next month and inducted in Los Angeles on April 18th.
