Well, whaddiya know...

I'll actually have a reason to watch it this year. I won't hold my breath though - its prolly the pop incarnation of the band that will get the biggest representation at the ceremony. But still, its a foot in the door...maybe. Genesis does seem like a safe choice, so now the HOF can say 'one and done' with regards to other prog acts. Time will tell.

If they can get PG and Steve to join the festivities, they would pretty much have to give some acknowledgment to the art/prog/whatever incarnation of the band, methinks.

And that might open the door to other prog acts in the future. Like Yes, Crim and Tull for instance.

I am a big Genesis fan, paticularly the early stuff. IMO there last good album was Genesis released in 1983. They catch a lot of flack because of the pop work of Phil Collins who seemed to be required to sing/perform on almost every LP released during the 80's.

A well deserved honor IMO. Tony Banks is a very overlooked keyboard player and songwriter. Not as flashy as his contemporaries but the layered sound he produced on a lot of songs was just amazing.
