I know of your stance on the RRHOF, but I just wanted to let you know, in case you are unawares with touring and all, that during James Hetfield's portion of Metallica's induction speech, he mentioned you guys, as follows:
"We're somewhat of a heavy band, and we have a small list that we'd also like to...just put some knods out, and maybe plant a little seed - it's a band called Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Rush, KISS, Ted Nugent, Iron Maiden, Motorhead; who we would love to invite through the door now, alright?!"
It probably won't shake any feathers in the grand scheme of things, but it was cool that James metioned KISS, none-the-less. Here's the Youtube link:
Can't wait to see ya in Philly, PA!
