Why did Genesis not perform???

I guess no time for rehearsal.  They did a reunion tour in 2007, and they were inducted in 2010.

Phil Collins' health is not as good now as it was back in 2010.  Now he walks with a walking stick, coz he gets a right numb leg now and cannot play the drum any more. 

Mark is a perfectionist, and I guess he may think it's better for him to do the DS stuff instead of others.

when the kennedy center honoured bands, they didn't perform, but other artists played their tunes

I know it's not the same thing as the rock n roll hall of fame, but it could be an idea....I hope not :-\

Just trolled a little bit in the 3 Chord Trick thread (https://www.amarkintime.org/forum/index.php?topic=6009.msg118845#msg118845) trying to push the discussion away from some heavy human behavior/linguistic studies ;)
What I'd like to point out, is that we know almost nothing about Mark's ideas and current relationships with other members -- all of them are grown ups, and one simple phone call could possibly change a lot.
Mark owes Dire Straits and this ceremony without his presence would be err... (let's say I can't find a good word).
Whatever his decision will be, we have to take it as the best choice.
Even if that would be a 60-minutes set consisting of OUaTitW, TR, ToL and SoS. Bang! 50% of grown up AMiTers dead because of heart attack :)

What he should do is make a surprise performance of Ticket to Heaven. And he could replace strings with pipes or flute to make it as period uncorrect as possible and announce his new solo album at the same time. It's such a simple song they can have it rehearsed in 20 minuts with 2 tea brakes included and he can do his strumming and not be a guitar hero. It's a good plan, I tell you.

The Cars, The Moody Blues, Bon Jovi... All of them saud publicly that they will attend and will perform at the ceremony in the Rolling Stone magazine.

When it comes to Dire Straits, all the inductees members, except Pick and MK, said that they would like to attend and play, but it's up to MK to do it... The only DS member who talked to Rolling Stone was John Illsley to say that it depends on MK

And MK hasn't said a word yet. I know he's busy right now finishing the new album and continue the work on the secret project but... is as easy as rake a look to the agenda and say "Ok, I could go, and I will, or, I won't go"...

It's not so important anyway but I guess that any DS fan would be happy to at least see them together being inducted, it kinds of feed our fan ego to see again our favorite band in the spotlight for a last time.
You might get lucky, now and then

Please accept that this is just your oppinion and that there are other DS/MK fans for whom even this idea is horrible and who feel very sorry for MK for having been thrown with dirt again and again by certain overbearing former temporary band members.

Did you notice that I said "I Guess"...?  I said "I" that means ME and GUESS that means it's not an absolute truth, but a guess.

I'm waiting for a new interview taking place before the ceremony by any magazine/radio/TV station.  That seems the only way MK has to answer whether he will go and play or not.   Otherwise we will need to wait until the day when the ceremony comes, and after the induction speech finishes, everyone holds breath to see if we can get lucky to see the man walking on stage with other guys.  Or maybe there will be some film shots in the audience while the speech goes, let's wait and see who's sitting next to JI.

I don't know if this has been mentioned here, sad new for the Moody blues and this might affect the RRHF program

Yes, a masterpiece. sounds nearly as a Soundboard, and a marvelous playing by the band.  :thumbsup
By the way - I know there is a version of it, that is "enhanced" by Enlight, but the torrent is dead on the Knopfler TK, and it is not on your repository as well. Do you know where I could find it ? And do you know how "enhanced" it is ? It is almost perfect as it is, I just notice one channel was down for a while during TR... Does the new version correct that ?

I just found this link via google. Don't know which version is. But it will work for those who don't have this bootleg in their collection (as it was my case). Thank you all for lettin' me know about it.

Thanks but this is actually the version from another taper, much much less good sounding that the other one.
