And my most objective self sees SY as a band that has garnered enough attention, rave reviews and praise from a wide variety of successful musicians to warrant a spot. And for all the ground they broke, seems they deserve one.
Again, I live an hour from there and I have gone ZERO times. The whole thing could catch on fire tomorrow and I'd give a fuck.
But if it has to exist, make room for a band that blazed as many trails as, say, R.E.M. The story of rock, if that's what they're trying to tell, is simply incomplete without SY.
I can't see them wanting to be on stage together, picking up an award or playing, at the moment. See Blondie's bitter, awkward induction into the hall of fame (fall-out with two ex-members) to see problems that could ensue.
R.E.M on the other hand are a dead cert.
