LET THE RUSH IN!!!
AS a huge fan of RUSH I just had to write about this. I have to say I cried when I saw that RUSH was on the ballot for the HALL OF FAME. It’s about damn time.
It’s official; Rush will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. They will join the greats such as, Heart, Randy Newman, Albert King, and Donna Summer. Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers. The ceremony will be held on April 18 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone, “It’s a terrific honor and we’ll show up smiling…It made my mom happy, so that’s worth it.” He added, “It was a cause [Rush fans] championed,” he says. “I’m very relieved for them and we share this honor with them, for sure.”
The band also issued an official statement: “We are honored to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 3 of us are especially appreciative of our loyal fans whose support and dedication has gone a long way to making this possible. P.S. And special thanks to our moms for voting 6000 times!”
Well let me tell you RUSH, I think I have your mothers beat.
