About the 2015 Inductees, Enigmaticus wrote:
I was looking at all music guide's list of artists who have influenced Rush and I do not agree with some of those artists. From various interviews given over the years, the list looks more like this:

The Beatles
Cream
The Who
Jimi Hendrix
Led Zeppelin
The Moody Blues
Yes
Genesis
Pink Floyd
Procol Harum
King Crimson
ELP
Gentle Giant
VDGG
Deep Purple
Jethro Tull
Blue Cheer

Also,

Talking Heads
The Police
U2
Roxy Music

and possibly,

Duran Duran

Therefore,

Each time that the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominating Committee makes their choices for induction, the public are usually perplexed. They often wonder why their favorite artists have to wait for such a long time, in order to receive their well deserved accolades. Now however, the fan vote is changing that outcome a bit. In 2013, the Rock Hall did an outstanding job of inducting both musical and non-performer icons. I am hoping that 2016 will be another such year. Therefore, here is my partial list of 2016 nominees:

1. Duran Duran

2. Moody Blues

3. Carly Simon

4. Sade

5. Doobie Brothers

6. Yes

7. Electric Light Orchestra

8. Deep Purple

9. Foreigner

About Duran Duran, Enigmaticus wrote:
The way that I see it, there are at least 7 additional reasons to induct Duran Duran into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame:

1. A body of studio albums which has stood the test of time, e.g. "Duran Duran," "Rio," "Duran Duran (aka The Wedding Album)," "Astronaut," "All You Need Is Now" and " their yet
untitled and unreleased 2015 album." In addition to possibly, "Seven And The Ragged Tiger," "Notorious," "Big Thing,". "Medazzaland" and "Red Carpet Massacre."

2. Their ability to reproduce their songs, or improve upon them in a live setting, e.g. "A Diamond In The Mind."

3. Their ability to remain innovative and influential.

4. They have won numerous prestigious awards, both collectively and individually.

5. They have remained intact as a unit, while most of their contemporaries are either non-existent, or are primarily relegated to being nostalgia acts.

6. Their ability to stay relevant, current, creative and not being afraid to go in new directions and try new things.

7. Longevity expressed in their ability to attract a large audience, even after 35 years of performing.

I think that this elucidates the many reasons why Duran Duran deserve immediate induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
