Howard's trying to get as many blacks on the show as possible now, trying to make up for all the years he freely threw the word "nigger" around.
Because he was never racist, you know? It was just part of the show
Captain America's been torn apart, now he's a court jester with a broken heart/he said "Turn me around and take me back to the start/I must be losing my mind, are you blind? I've seen it all a million times"
Just a "thing" with Wenner to ignore artists he's not buddies with, or at least a fan of. Rush have only done one interview with Rolling Stone in 30 years, which only happened a couple of years ago, and guess who runs the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, the same one that keeps ignoring them.
I reckon Howard wants to keep his free sub to RS, so I make the natural "conspiracy theory" connection on the forums.
