Greatest thing that ever happened to me was turning 45 and being single. Started to get a little bit of gray in the sideburns and everywhere I look little miss daddy issues is giving me the eye. Would suck to croak now, things are just getting good.

I liked being single at 40 just as much as being single at 45.     We have a rule of thumb here.    Once a guy passes 35 years old, the perfect age match for him is to divide his age by 2, then add 3.   So at 50 years old, you divide by 2 to get 25 and add 3, so 28 is the perfect age for a 50 year old to date.    You can add 5 to that if you like and date up to 33 years old, but deducting years from it is ok only for one night stands.

Really?   The Beastie Boys are in the Rock and Roll hall of fame but Rush isn't?    That's ridiculous.

Yes, it is ridiculous.

Here's a few more that could be included. Not a perfect list but it's a start.
I haven't double checked so maybe some on the list have been inducted.
But this will at least give you a jumping off point.

Kiss
Rush
Joy Division
**CENSORED** Dale
Roxy Music
Cheap Trick
The Smiths
(Morrissey)
Deep Purple
Chicago
Yes
Stone Roses
Happy Mondays
NY Dolls
Psychedelic Furs
Warren Zevon
Def Leppard
Jethro Tull
The Monkees
The Cars
Peter Frampton
INXS
Tom Waits (2011)
Todd Rundgren
The Moody Blues

Stone Roses over Beasties? Are you frigging kidding me? I like Stone Roses but no way in hell over Beastie Boys and all the different sounds they had through their careers.

Rush Is In! The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame



After all our whining, we have to pass along word that Rush has made it into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

And, yes, we know that some of this year's other inductees, announced today, may be more "important":

Heart.

Randy Newman.

Public Enemy.

Donna Summer.

Albert King.

Lou Adler.

Quincy Jones.

But we'll leave it up to our friends at The Record to debate the artists' merits. Rush's Geddy Lee tells Rolling Stone the band is honored. He thinks, though, that Deep Purple should have made it in this year as well.

We're just glad the people have spoken (fans got to vote this year; Two-Way readers, by the way, expressed their strong support for Rush in 2011).

The induction ceremony is April 18 in Los Angeles.

Public Enemy is in the hall of fame?    The Hall of Fame is worthless then.

Public Enemy is probably one of the 10 most influential groups of the 20th century of any genre.  Like it or not, they belong more than Rush (And I'm a huge Rush fan)

Hey, if Hank Williams can be in it, Public Enemy certainly has a right.

Hank Williams had talent.   Public Enemy doesn't even have one good song, or any talent.

Neither Public Enemy or Hank Williams should be in the rock and roll hall of fame, because they are not predominantly rock artists. They should just call it the music hall of fame if they are going to let any type of artist in.  Its pretty stupid anyways

I mean, the problem is what is specifically rock and roll.  You could make a case that Elvis was more country than rock.  Is prog rock the same as rock and roll?  Rock and roll spawned from rhythm and blues.  Rap also spawned from R&B.  So how do you define it?

Rap spawned from R&B?     R&B is about 1 million times better than rap, so that is a huge regression.
