Rush at Barclays Center, October 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
In a just-held ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. that was hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees were announced after nominees surfaced a short two months ago. Among this year's class are Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Heart, Albert King and the long-snubbed Rush, along with receipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award, Lou Adler and Quincy Jones.
Reportedly, Rush was the clear beneficiary of the recently instituted popular vote, and the band had the following comment:
"We are honored to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 3 of us are especially appreciative of our loyal fans whose support and dedication has gone a long way to making this possible. P.S. And special thanks to our moms for voting 6000 times!" - Alex, Geddy, & NeilThe induction takes place in April 2013, followed by a telecast of the ceremony on HBO. Congrats guys!
This letter, signed by a ton of artists and pictured above, is set to appear in an ad in Billboard:
We are big fans of Pandora. That's why we helped give the company a discount on rates for the past decade.Pink Floyd, Down, Primus, Dead Kennedys (with our without Jello?), Nas, Alabama, Sheryl Crow and many more big major label names signed this (or someone signed it on their behalf). Check out the full list below, and head to fairpayforartists.com for more information on their point of view..
Pandora is now enjoying phenomenal success as a Wall Street company. Skyrocketing growth in revenues and users. We celebrate that. At the same time, the music community is just now beginning to gain its footing in the new digital world.
Pandora's principal asset is the music.
Why is the company asking Congress once again to step in and gut the royalties that thousands of musicians rely upon? That's not fair, and that's not how partners work together.
Congress has many pressing issues to consider, but this is not one of them. Let's work this out as partners and continue to bring fans the great musical experience they rightly expect.
The issue is that Pandora is supporting the Internet Radio Fairness Act which they say will "help end the long-standing discrimination against internet radio". Artists are mad because that possibly means less money for them, but Pandora and other Internet radio providers argue they can't stay in business the way things are now.

Beginning on Thursday, October 4 and continuing through December 5, the public can vote for the five nominees they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a "fans' ballot" that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2013 inductees.The Induction Ceremony will take place at Nokia Theatre in LA on April 18, 2013 and will air on HBO.
