If it was then you'll fit right in.

Four beats and that's it. Everything is a boring four beat pattern. Pure, unadulterated garbage.

Couldn't the same description be used for most of what is known as "punk?"

To answer interviewer's question. The answer is No. Further, punk wasn't boring and many of the musicians were well, musicians.

To be fair, BTO had at least one of the most memorable songs of their era. Whether that is enough to merit induction is not for me to decide, but...

The Guess Who I think have a case to made for induction as for BTO I don't think so. I can't find one major act influenced by them or who has covered them. I got to say no.

B.T.O. was one of the top 4 or 5 Rock n roll acts of the 1970's. Sold tens of millions of records & tapes and was one of the top grossing touring acts in the 1970's in Canada & America. They had great songs, great guitar work, great vocals and the songs 'Takin' Care Of the Business' & 'You Aint seen Nothin' Yet are rock Anthems. Very famous for their "galloping" rythmn sound on many songs. NO Question they are Rock Hall of Famers.
