This week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has been honoring Chuck Berry as part of its 17th Annual American Music Masters series. The celebration wraps up Saturday night (October 27) with a concert paying tribute to the man, featuring a diverse cast of artists including Rick Derringer, Vernon Reid of Living Colour, country music legend Merle Haggard, David Johansen of The New York Dolls (formerly known as Buster Poindexter), metal icon Lemmy, indie rocker M. Ward, Ronnie Hawkins (leader of The Hawks, who later became The Band), bluesman Joe Bonamassa and DMC from Run-DMC.
At first glance, this year’s Rock Hall inductions seem to be the perfect storm for Rush. Not only is the Canadian prog-rock trio finally nominated for the first time since its eligibility in 1999, but this year marks the first time fans will have a vote – albeit a tiny one – to decide who is inducted.
Hard rock fans may have cause to rejoice within a few weeks: after being ignored for years, Rush and Deep Purple are on this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot, as is Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. One question that has yet to be answered is, if inducted, which members of these groups will be included?
Chuck Berry has been honored by countless guitarists who came after him, but now he’ll be honored – once again – by the institution of rock’n'roll itself.
