Lifeson hopes the hall’s membership keeps up with the trend.
‘‘Maybe it should be the Music Hall of Fame and not so much the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,’’ Lifeson said. ‘‘But maybe it all is rock ‘n’ roll. It started as a little seed and grew into this great big tree with a lot of branches. That’s why it’s so sad the whole progressive movement, bands like Yes and King Crimson, are not included in this. ... I hope there comes a time when these other artists and bands are included because they were equally as influential as any of the ones that are being inducted today.’’
