A group of Styx fans have launched an online petition calling for the induction of the legendary group into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
“For over 20 years, Styx has been eligible for induction into the Rock & Rock Hall of Fame. We as fans believe the recognition for their achievements and influences in rock music is long overdue,” says the petition uploaded on Change.org.
The rock band, formed in September 1972, was “the first musical act to be certified by the RIAA as achieving four consecutive multi-platinum albums,” the petition notes.
“We created our online petition to demonstrate to the Hall that fans of Styx want to see them receive this recognition,” Ken Shafer, one of the fans leading the petition, explained in a press release.
The group, called High Time For Styx, said on the public petition website that they have reached their second incremental goal of 1,500 signatures. “Now it’s on to our next goal of 2.5K signatures,” it added. The petition already has garnered the support of 2,000 signatories.
“We all feel the band deserves to be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and would like to see the band inducted while many of the band members are healthy enough to attend a ceremony if there indeed will still be ceremonies,” says Styx manager Charlie Brusco.
