Chris Squire Reacts To Rush Being Inducted Into Rock Hall Before Yes

(hennemusic) In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Yes bassist Chris Squire discusses, among other topics, how he feels about being snubbed by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for another year, and comments on Rush's upcoming induction.

Q: Rush are getting inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Are you at all miffed they got it before you?

A: (Laughs) "No, I can't object to that. Logistically, it's probably difficult for whoever the committee is to bring in Yes. Rush is fairly simple. It's the same three guys and always has been. They deserve to be there, no doubt about that.

But there still seems to be a certain bias towards early-Seventies prog rock bands like Yes and King Crimson. I still think it's weird that Chicago isn't in. That to me is odd. In our case, we're on our 18th member. If we ever do get inducted, it would be only fair to have all the members, old and new. So that may be a problem for the committee. I don't know." more on this story
